CRANBERRY, Pa. -- Brian Dumoulin's a matchup man at heart.

And on a single scrimmage shift on the Penguins' second day of training camp at the Lemieux Sports Complex, he was the kid on Christmas morning.

First came Patric Hornqvist down the right side, broaching the blue line and set to attempt what could generously be described as a very camp-like move. Rather than the standard, straight-line Hornqvist route, he'd try to slip the puck to the inside, 66-style, and devastate his team's top one-on-one defenseman.

That didn't go well, as this photo-composite by our Matt Sunday illustrates:
