Penguins' Talbot to play in Game 2 against Flyers

Sunday, May 11, 2008
 

Forward Max Talbot will play tonight in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference final against the Philadelphia Flyers at Mellon Arena.

Talbot has not played since Game 3 of a second-round series against the New York Rangers. His right foot was broken on a blocked shot in that contest. He practiced with the Penguins on Saturday for the first time since he was injured, and coach Michel Therrien said Talbot would be in the lineup tonight.

Prior to his injury, Talbot skated on a line with forwards Adam Hall and Georges Laraque. Veteran left wing Gary Roberts replaced Talbot for the past three playoff games, but Therrien did not say if Hall or Roberts would be scratched for Game 2.

The Penguins lead the best-of-seven series, 1-0. They are 6-0 at home in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
