Pittsburgh-penguins-brooks
The Penguins with a lineup close to what they might use when the season opens dominated a watered-down Detroit lineup in a 5-1 preseason win Wednesday night at Joe Louis Arena. They finished their preseason schedule 3-2-1. Chris Kunitz had two goals for the Penguins. Jussi Jokinen Craig Adams and Pascal Dupuis each had one. Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin each had two assists. One point of concern is defenseman Brooks Orpik who did not play in the third period. He collided with fellow Penguins defenseman Deryk Engelland and Red Wings winger Drew Miller just before Miller scored in the second period. There was no immediate update on Orpik's status.
