Scuderi will skate with Kris Letang on Thursday following the injury sustained by Olli Maatta on Tuesday. Coach Mike Johnston said he picked the 36-year-old Scuderi to pair with Letang because of his defensive prowess -- which allows Letang to work in the offensive end of the rink. Scuderi has four assists through 16 games but has never totaled more than 16 points in any of his previous 11 seasons.
