pregame-thoughts-penguins-at-panthers-02-06-16 The Penguins - to some surprise - will start backup goaltender Jeff Zatkoff tonight. With Marc-Andre Fleury in the midst of a mini-slump, starting Zatkoff might be more for Fleury's benefit than Zatkoff's or even the team's. Regardless, Zatkoff needs to follow up his mostly solid peformance with an equal or better effort tonight. Zatkoff has always ... Read More and Comment
