Pick Six: Tuesday January 10

No team has been snakebitten more than the Pittsburgh Penguins when it comes to injuries this season.

As if the Sidney Crosby concussion watch wasn’t enough. Kris Letang has been dealing with his own concussion for several weeks. Then on Saturday, both Jordan Staal and James Neal suffered injuries that will keep them out of the lineup for several weeks. So when does it all end?

With that in mind, it was a bad day for coaches of struggling Southeast Division teams, as Bruce Boudreau and Paul Maurice were both handed their walking papers on Monday. Dale Hunter and Kirk Muller will both make their NHL head coaching debuts on Tuesday, which should make the St. Louis/Washington and Florida/Carolina matchups two to watch. This version of the Pick Six includes players who could be positively impacted by Monday’s coaching changes.
