Penguins Training Camp-Day Three by @pghgirl15222

A few notes from today’s training camp:

While Johnston has suggested no one should read into line combinations too much he did mention today that we can “read a little bit” into the Downie, Sutter, and Bennett combo. Johnston stated  he is “trying to look for someone to fit with Sutter, who’d be a good long-term fit and add balance and depth to our group.” 
On defense Martin and Ehrhoff were paired as well as Scuderi and Letang. 
Crosby and Malkin were both held out today. I think this is a smart move on their part. No need to risk players like that.
Sutter left the scrimmage for a short time after taking what looked like a puck to the face. He came back quickly like a boss. Hockey players. Tough guys. 
Kunitz practiced but did not scrimmage. Johnston mentioned that they are being overcautious at this point and any slight thing can cause a player to be pulled. Smart.
Duper looked good. He still sported a no contact jersey but was moving well and looked thrilled to be back. A great sight to see. I can tell he is itching to hit someone.
