  As the injury riddled Penguins get set for a 3:30 face off with the Chicago Blackhawks Sunday, a line-up change will certainly be in effect.  Pittsburgh left winger Matt Cooke is in place to return to the Pens line-up after serving a 4 game suspension for a hit on Columbus' Fedor Tyutin.

Cooke has 10 goals and 13 assists on the year.

  On an injury front, Pens forward Nick Johnson, who has played in 4 NHL games since being called up from Wilkes Barre-Scranton, is the latest casualty.  Dan Bylsma said Johnson has an upper body injury(possibly a concussion).  Johnson was involved in a lopsided fight with Colorado's Ryan Wilson on Wednesday.  The Penguins have recalled forward Tim Wallace for Sunday's game in Chicago.
