Scott Harrington will skate with Christian Ehrhoff to form their second defensive pairing against the New York Islanders on Friday night.

Harrington, just 21 years old, has 30 points in 99 AHL games and isn't known for his offense. This could mean the Pens want Ehrhoff (13 points in 37 games) to rediscover his scoring touch as Harrington locks down the homestead. Either way, much is expected of his duo in an effort to reclaim the Metro division.
