The Penguins will get at least one player back from the IR Tuesday. Winger Tyler Kennedy, scratched since October with a concussion, is in the lineup against the Colorado Avalanche.
Forward Dustin Jeffrey has also been recalled from a conditioning assignment in Wilkes-Barre Scranton. Steve Sullivan will be a game time decision, with Eric Tangradi the likely odd man out.
Pittsburgh can move to first place in the Eastern Conference with a win.
