Released: Penguins Lineups for Sunday vs. Columbus, Games 1 & 2



Pittsburgh Penguins tickets NHL return

The Pittsburgh Penguins won’t subject their star players or many of their anticipated NHL regulars to the split-squad preseason games on Sunday. The Penguins host the Columbus Blue Jackets at 1 p.m. at PPG Paints Arena and visit Nationwide Arena for the second game that begins at 7 p.m.

Drew O’Connor, Brayden Yager, and P.O Joseph will lead the Penguins for the home fans.

In the visiting game, Sam Poulin, Vinnie Hinostroza, and Mark Pysyk headline the Penguins squad.

Associate coach Todd Reirden will coach one game. Assistant coach Mike Vellucci will coach the other. Penguins fans may also see top goalie Joel Blomqvist if coaches split the game between Alex Nedeljkovic and Blomqvist.
