PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Penguins will try to get back on track tonight following a third period meltdown that led to a 7-4 loss Wednesday against the Boston Bruins.

The Tampa Bay Lightning will make their first visit to the CONSOL Energy Center when they take on the Pens at 7 p.m.

Marc-Andre Fleury will start in goal and forward Chris Conner will play his first game for the Pens this year, according to Sportsradio 93-7 The Fan’s Jeff Hathhorn.

He also reports that Evgeni Malkin returned to the ice this morning after a day off on Thursday. He will center the second line tonight.

This will be the second meeting between the Pens and Lightning this season. During their Oct. 27 meeting in Tampa Bay, the Pens lost 5-3.
