NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury confirmed he will start tonight against Nasvhille. Backup Brent Johnson has started -- and won -- the past three games, and Fleury has not played since Oct. 13, a 4-3 loss to Toronto.
"I'm just looking forward to getting back into it," Fleury said after the team's morning skate at Bridgestone Arena.
"I'm excited to get back in there. It's been a while since I've played."
In addition, coach Dan Bylsma said defenseman Brooks Orpik, who is recovering from a groin strain, could play Saturday at St. Louis, and winger Arron Asham, who is recovering from a shoulder injury, could play on this road trip, which concludes next Wednesday at Tampa.
