Don't be surprised to see Justin Schultz and Kris Letang together on the first power play.
The Penguins have gone with four forwards and Letang for a long time but the emergence of Schultz in the last five weeks has changed some plans, especially when he played so well with Letang out of the lineup. "I think these guys are both very capable guys," coach Mike Sullivan said. "We might use both of them on the unit. ‘Tanger’ is obviously an elite defenseman and has been such a big part of this team in every aspect, the power play being one of them. Justin, in ‘Tanger’s’ absence, has done a really good job and helped the power play continue to grow and get better. We feel as though we can keep both of those guys in the mix. It might give us an opportunity to manage minutes better and to make sure that we allow the recovery time for those guys so that they can be at their best. I think it gives us more versatility and more options, depending on the struggles or challenges that we face." Schultz has seven goals and 25 points in 39 games with a plus-24 rating.
