The Penguins have recalled Ryan Whitney and Erik Christensen from Wilkes-Barre to replace the injured Dick Tarnstrom and Andre Roy. Both were a big part of the success of the Baby Penguins. Whitney had 14 points (5 G, 9 A) in 9 games from the blue line, and Christensen was averaging over two points per game with 19 points (9 G, 10 A) in 9 games. Edzo has said that he'll use both players "immediately and extensively".
This can only be good news. Christensen was on a line with Palffy and Malone in practice. There is some hope that he can be the missing second line center that the Pens have been looking for. Whitney is a highly touted prospect that has good offensive skills. The Baby Pens started the year on a 9 game winning streak. With any luck, some of that will rub off on the pro club with the arrival of these two guys.
By the way, Fleury is 6-0 with a one-something goals against average in 6 games with the Baby Pens. He's ready to be here in Pittsburgh.
