PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Penguins will look to get back in the win column tonight when they host the San Jose Sharks tonight.

The Sharks will be playing on back-to-back nights after beating Detroit 4-3 Tuesday night.

Newcomers James Neal and Matt Niskanen will make their debut tonight for the Pens. Both were on the ice with the team for the morning skate today.

Here are the lines that Dan Bylsma has skating together this morning:

1st Line: James Neal – Jordan Staal – Pascal Dupuis
2nd Line: Chris Conner – Max Talbot – Mike Rupp
3rd Line: Matt Cooke – Craig Adams – Tyler Kennedy
4th Line: Brett Sterling – Joe Vitale – Tim Wallace

Defense

1st D Pairing: Brooks Orpik – Kris Letang
2nd D Pairing: Ben Lovejoy – Zbynek Michalek
3rd D Pairing: Matt Niskanen – Deryk Engelleand

Morning Notes:

*Chris Kunitz and Paul Martin both took part in individual workouts this morning. Kunitz is still waiting official team clearance to return to the lineup.

*Marc-Andre Fleury will be in net for the Pens while the Sharks are expected to counter with Antti Niemi.

*How good has Fleury been lately? He’s allowed two or fewer goals in 28 of his past 38 starts.
