Team works on power play


Penguins defenseman Paul Martin is dealing with complications from a concussion and is questionable for Saturday's NHL opener against the Philadelphia Flyers.  He did practice yesterday paired with Brooks Orpik   

The Penguins worked on their power play yesterday in practice, with forward James Neal moving back to the blue line playing what he called “rover”.
  That would put Kris Letang and Neal on defense on the man advantage.  Coach Dan Bylsma said he designed the power play to resemble the one six years ago when defenseman Ryan Whitney lined up at the point and often slipped into the left circle for back-door feeds from Sidney Crosby.  Chris Kunitz worked the first power play unit with Evgeni Malkin and Crosby.

Pittsburgh opens at home Saturday then goes to New York to play the Rangers on Sunday.  Penguins tickets go on sale at 10 AM today at Ticketmaster and the Consol Energy Center.
