Expected Penguins Lines vs. Calgary Flames



The Pittsburgh Penguins have won the first two games on their four-game road trip. They beat Toronto last Thursday then enjoyed the Canadian Rockies for a couple days before beating Edmonton in overtime, Tuesday.  Sidney Crosby scored a dazzling overtime winner to remind the hockey world that he’s still one of the best ever.

Despite the Penguins success, controversy and angst are prevalent in the fan base. In the past two games, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan shortened the bench, which effectively benched Daniel Sprong and Dominik Simon. The result was the creation of the newest Penguins lines including the SCHutdown line; Riley Sheahan-Matt Cullen-Patric Hornqvist, which was used heavily against Toronto and Edmonton in the later stages of the game.
