Zatkoff Gets The Nod For Pens Vs Kings

Zatkoff_Penguins_2014

It looks to be a battle of the backups tonight in Pittsburgh when the Pens host the Kings.

Jeff Zatkoff is already confirmed as Pittsburgh’s starter tonight — he’ll face the organization that drafted him in 2006 — and it looks as though L.A. will go with Martin Jones.

Zatkoff will play for the first time since stopping 21 shots in a 4-3 OT win over Tampa Bay. Jones hasn’t played since Mar. 15, when he allowed two goals on 20 shots in a loss to the Ducks.
