Vitale, Engelland replace Kennedy, Eaton for Pens in Game 2

If you believe the findings of one college professor, the Pittsburgh Penguins decided to make their MVP a healthy scratch for Monday’s Game 2 against the Boston Bruins.

Nope, it’s not Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin. That guy isn’t Kris Letang, either.

Instead, it’s Tyler Kennedy. (Hey, don’t kill the messenger.) The team is going with Joe Vitale in Kennedy’s place while Deryk Engelland slides into Mark Eaton’s spot on defense.

While CSNNE.com’s Joe Haggerty points out that some believed Kaspars Daugavins might draw into the lineup for Jaromir Jagr, it appears that the struggling veteran will play tonight.
