Cooke gets upgraded

Matt Cooke got promoted to the top line for tonight's game against Philadelphia. This is the first time he has been on a top line since late in 2003-04 with the Vancouver Canucks. He will be on Crosby's wing with Geno. Think maybe he's out there to pound some people? We're gonna say he gets a goal tonight. Now do it!

Chris Minard will join the number two line of Staal and Sykora, while Satan, Talbot, and Kennedy are third liners, and Bissonnette, Jeffrey, and Godard are on the fourth line.

Dupuis did not make the trip to Philly, so the Pens called up Paul Bissonnette from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Now this can only mean one thing...there's gonna be a fight tonight! We sure hope there's a good fight tonight, what better than Biz Nasty fighting a Flyer?

Also from the Pens site the morning skate update says that the defensive pairings are Orpik and Whitney, Letang and Scuderi, Gill and Goligoski. Eaton and Boucher should be the scratches tonight. We're happy to see Go-go back.

Enjoy the game. Let's Go Pens!

Yinz Luv 'Da Stillers later!
