Eric Tangradi finding his niche with the Pens

Updated: October 18, 2010 at 1:32 pm by Reggie Yinger

After impressive back-to-back wins for Pittsburgh, the Penguins seem to have found a good blend of youngsters to mix in with some veteran names on their top lines.

While the top line comes as no surprise, the second line features 21-year old Eric Tangradi skating with Mike Comrie and Evgeni Malkin.  Tangradi has registered just two points to start the season and seems to comfortable on the ice. Veteran Mike Comrie is making the most out of his opportunity on the second line but has registered just one point to start the season; his fantasy value should be on the rise given he’s fifth on the team with power play ice time.

According to Sam Kasan’s Penguins Report, here are the lines for tonight’s game against the Ottawa Senators.

Chris Kunitz – Sidney Crosby – Pascal Dupuis

Eric Tangradi – Mike Comrie – Evgeni Malkin

Matt Cooke – Maxime Talbot – Tyler Kennedy

Michael Rupp – Mark Letestu/Craig Adams – Eric Godard

Paul Martin – Kris Letang

Alex Goligoski – Ben Lovejoy

Deryk Engelland – Andrew Hutchinson
