Pittsburgh Penguins’ forward Taylor Pyatt and Joe Vitale are reportedly set to play in the team’s first game back from break on Thursday – according to Michelle Crechiolo of the Pens’ website and the team’s Twitter handle.

Connor has not suited up since Dec. 31 after having surgery to repair a broken hand.
Pyatt should, barring any lineup adjustments, be back on the third-line, and I’m anticipating Vitale returning to centering the fourth-line.
Pittsburgh’s got the Montreal Canadiens, Thursday. The game can be seen on the ROOT Network, and is set to start at 7 p.m.
