From the Post-Gazette...

Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin will be linemates when the Penguins face Toronto Saturday night at Mellon Arena. Coach Michel Therrien had Crosby between Malkin and Pascal Dupuis during practice at Southpointe Friday. Also, Therrien overhauled all of his forward lines. The lines look like this:

Evgeni Malking - Sidney Crosby - Pascal Dupuis
Ruslan Fedotenko - Jordan Staal - Petr Sykora
Miroslav Satan - Max Talbot - Tyler Kennedy
Paul Bissonnette - Bill Thomas - Eric Godard.

Center Mike Zigomanis missed practice because of an unspecified injury, but said he expects to be able to play against the Maple Leafs.

So, let me get this straight... Miro Satan has gone from being the answer to Hossa on Sid's wing to the third line wing. Ugh...

Brenden Shannahan

I don't think Shanahan would be a good fit. He doesn't have the speed to keep up with Sid or Malkin center.

Isn't Shanahan in his 40s?

^ yes
amazingly though lines 2,3 and 4 look good even with malkin on the top line which is beautiful
