Found February 09, 2013 on Running With The Devils:
    I can’t even describe my emotions right now. Despite a killer blizzard, the old saying goes, “The show must go on.” Well, it did and that game was a beauty. Two teams, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New Jersey Devils, both came into this game on big win streaks and high spirits.

Report:  Penguins Recall Defenseman Prospect Joe Morrow

Too soon to make too much out of this.  Could very well be simply that Kris Letang's "lower body" (read: groin) injury is worse than originally anticipated.  Matt Niskanen has been skating the past couple of days, but may not be ready to return to the lineup soon.   Interesting: #Penguins have recalled 2011 first-round pick Joe Morrow, a defenseman. ...
