Never in his wildest dreams did Seth Jarvis envision that he would be playing alongside two of the greatest hockey players in NEFHL history.  An opportunity any young hockey player would relish, yet ultimately be intimidate by.  However, that did not seem to be the case on Tuesday night.  

"I don't think I slept Monday night.  I tried not to think about who I was playing with, but you obviously can't help it.  Those are two guys I looked up to as a youngster.  To be honest, I don't think I know who I like more as a player.  I am happy that we had some instant chemistry and hope that continues next game," said the young winger. 

In an impressive 4-3 win against the Vancouver Canucks, the trio of Alexander Ovechkin, Sidney Crosby and the aforementioned Jarvis combined for three of the four goals.  

While nothing is set in stone, it appears as though this unit could be the Penguins first line to start the year. 

"We've liked what we have seen so far from that trio.  The plan is to play around with lines and see what happens in preseason.  It's nice to have a few more weapons this year.  Variety is definitely the spice of life!" said head coach Craig Berube. 

The Penguins square off against the Slugs on Sunday in what should be a barn burner of a match up.  Both Crosby and Evgeni Malkin left Tuesday's game  early due to injury.  While the latter appears good to go, the former is considered day to day. 

"It's nothing serious. More precautionary than anything," said the tight lipped coach. 

Winger Miles Wood will be on the shelf for the remainder of the preseason.  It is expected that he will be good to go for the first game of the regular season.
