Breaking: Last minute change to Penguins' lineup tonight!

This is an interesting change.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are all set to face off against the Carolina Hurricanes tonight, but they've made a last minute adjustment to the positioning of two players on the roster, which may raise some eyebrows.

Phil Kessel has been forced to the left side of Evgeni Malkin's wing as Mike Sullivan has apparently decided he wants to see what he can do there - as Patric Hornqvist has not generally looked too great on his off side. 

He's played the left side before during this season, but he was clearly not completely comfortable. The hope here is that perhaps Kessel could remain the elite scoring threat he's been all season despite being on his wrong side.

Kessel leads the team in points, with 44. Hopefully, this doesn't negatively affect his game.
