Tuukka Rask
Chad Johnson

Healthy scratches: Jordan Caron, Andrej Meszaros, Corey Potter
Out: Dennis Seidenberg (knee), Adam McQuaid (quadriceps)

Notes: Two question marks are Kelly (back) and Paille (head). Both considered day-to-day. Caron would slot in for either player at left wing.

PHILADELPHIA FLYERS
Submitted by Tim Panaccio (@tpanotchCSN) on 4/14

Hartnell-Giroux-Voracek

Raffl-BSchenn-Simmonds

Akeson-Couturier-Read

Rinaldo-Lecavalier-Hall

Timonen-Coburn

Streit-Grossmann

MacDonald-LSchenn

Mason/Emery

– Rinaldo/Raffl alternate lines
– Akeson is a guess but a good guess
– Downie scratch

PENGUINS
Submited by Rob Rossi (@RobRossi_Trib) on 4/15

Chris Kunitz-Sidney Crosby-Beau Bennett
Jussi Jokinen-Evgeni Malkin-James Neal
Tanner Glass-Brandon Sutter-Lee Stempniak
Craig Adams-Joe Vitale-Brian Gibbons

Brooks Orpik-Paul Martin
Rob Scuderi-Kris Letang
Olli Maatta-Matt Niskanen

Marc-Andre Fleury
Jeff Zatkoff

Injured players: Evgeni Malkin (foot), Chris Conner (foot),
Extras: D/RW Deryk Engelland, D Robert Bortuzzo, D Simon Despres, LW Harry Zolnierczyk, G Tomas Vokoun

Notes:

– Evgeni Malkin has not played in three weeks, but could be back for Game 1. If not, that clearly changes lines. (Jokinen probably becomes second-line center if Malkin does not play, which could move Kobasew up and put an extra in the lineup on fourth line)
– Deryk Engelland is a defenseman, but has spent time on fourth line as winger and could be option there for playoffs.
