STEP BACK TO MOVE FORWARD
THE PENS remain largely unchanged from the team that began the lockout-shortened season, meaning Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin lead the way. Jarome Iginla is gone, so Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis ride shotgun with Crosby, while James Neal is next to Malkin. The defense is led by one of the top blueliners anywhere: Kris Letang. Marc-Andre Fleury remains the starter.
