Josh Archibald might draw into the Penguins' lineup on Wednesday.

Based on Monday's practice lines, Archibald would be part of the fourth unit. If he does draw into the lineup, Tom Kuhnhackl would likely be a healthy scratch. Archibald has appeared in just one game this season.

Frank Corrado has been returned to the minors.

Corrado has appeared in three games with Pittsburgh this season, but he hasn't played since Nov. 4. He also has one goal and one assist in six matches with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
Nov 20 - 3:47 PM

Olli Maatta didn't take part in Monday's practice because he is still dealing with an illness.

Maatta didn't skate Saturday morning either, but he still managed to play against Chicago. He logged 18:10 of ice time in the contest. Pittsburgh doesn't return to action until Wednesday night, so Maatta has some time to recover.

Kris Letang is starting to turn his season around.

Letang started the season as one of the worst defensemen in the NHL as he had the worst plus-minus in the league. He was on for only seven goals in five-on-five situations while the Penguins allowed 25 when he was on the ice. But that was then and he has shown a marked improvement in his game. The Penguins have outshot their opposition 70-38 when Letang has been on the ice in five-on-five situations of late and that is a big improvement. He has a goal and 15 points in 22 games and a minus-12 rating but look for his stats to only get better in the last three quarters of the season.

Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette thinks that Carter Rowney could return to action as early as Wednesday.

Rowney suffered a hand injury October 21 and the Penguins are missing his prowess on the penalty kill. He has only two points in nine games this season so he has no fantasy value.

Matt Murray made 36 saves on 38 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Hard to be mad at Murray for his overall performance against Chicago. Allowing two goals on 38 shots would normally be enough to win a game, but Corey Crawford was better. Murray's record falls to 11-5-1 with a 2.81 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage.

Sidney Crosby was held pointless for the fourth time in six games after a 2-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Crosby ended an 11-game goalless streak earlier this week, and picked up an assist against Ottawa on Thursday, but has otherwise been pointless in four of his last six games. Crosby has six goals and 16 points in 22 games.

After missing the morning skate due to an illness, it has been confirmed that Olli Maatta will play tonight vs. Chicago.

With 11 points in 21 games this season, Maatta has started to garner fantasy attention. Get the talented Finn into your lineups tonight.
Nov 18 - 6:58 PM

Frank Corrado will serve as a healthy scratch tonight against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Corrado has played in only three games this season, and will watch from the press box for the sixth straight game. Josh Archibald and Chad Ruhwedel are also expected to be scratched.
Nov 18 - 6:42 PM

The Pittsburgh Penguins will have Matt Murray in goal tonight against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Murray allowed just one goal against the Senators last time out in a 3-1 win. Hopefully, he will perform better tonight against the Blackhawks than he did in his previous outing against them when got got pulled and the Penguins lost 10-1. The 23-year-old netminder has a 11-4-1 record with a 2.86 goals against average and a .906 save percentage.
Nov 18 - 6:08 PM

Carter Rowney was back at Penguins' practice Saturday morning.

He had been out of action since October 21st with a broken hand but seems to be close to a recovery.
Nov 18 - 1:13 PM

Matt Hunwick will return to the Pittsburgh lineup Saturday night against Chicago.

He has missed the last month due to post concussion symptoms. If for some reason you rely on Hunwick, get ready to activate him.
Nov 18 - 1:05 PM

Matt Murray is the Penguins' probable starter Saturday against the Blackhawks.

He is coming off a relatively easy 3-1 win over the Senators in which he stopped 21 shots. The last time Murray faced the Blackhawks he was pulled in an 10-1 lopsided loss on opening night. Look for Murray and the Penguins to come out with a little vengence in mind.
Nov 18 - 1:02 PM

Olli Maata missed Saturday morning's skate due to an illness.

He will be a game-time decision for Saturday night's contest against the Blackhawks.
Nov 18 - 12:54 PM

Bryan Rust recorded an assist in a 3-1 win against Ottawa Thursday night.

Rust has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four games. He has two goals and 12 points in 21 games in 2017-18. That puts him well on his way to establishing a new career-high after he recorded 28 points in 57 contests last season. It wouldn't be shocking to see him get about 40 points this time around.
