Sydor At Forward

from Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

Darryl Sydor deflected the question - why did the longest-tenured NHL defenseman on the Penguins’ roster play six minutes and 31 seconds Saturday night as a left wing? - to coach Michel Therrien.

“Ask him,” Sydor said following the Penguins’ 2-1 overtime loss to the New Jersey Devils at Mellon Arena.

“I’m going to keep to myself, be a professional and work hard.”

Therrien, who essentially shelved the fourth line that Sydor shared with right wing Eric Godard and forward Michael Zigomanis, said Sydor’s role last night was determined by the need to use him at the point on the Penguins’ second power-play unit.

“And we thought (rookie defenseman Alex) Goligoski did a great job his last game, and we’re going to work with him,” Therrien said.
