Phil Kessel is likely to start training camp on the same line as Sidney Crosby, according to coach Mike Johnston.
"We're looking at Crosby with Kessel and Malkin with Hornqvist," Johnston said. "On the left side, there are a number of players. Even right wingers like David Perron or Beau Bennett might be there. We want to see how a guy like Pascal (Dupuis) looks." The lines will probably be tinkered with during the Penguins' eight-game exhibition schedule, but it looks like Crosby will have a star winger by his side this season. Kessel is a five-time 30-goal scorer who has hit 80 points in two of his last four seasons. Aug 25 - 2:26 PM
