I found it odd as well with Park inserted in practice today. But it could be a case of getting him the ice time cuz you may need him in the playoffs.
Heres Sid on Aaron Asham's radio show last night i believe. They go over alot of things and you get some insight as to what the team thinks of all the Flyers whining or crying foul. You can tell from Asham's response that he's just like us. He loved that stuff and how it went down.
With just two games remaining in the regular season and a first-round playoff matchup with heated rival Philadelphia looming, the Pittsburgh Penguins decided to play things safe on Thursday, announcing Matt Niskanen (upper-body), James Neal (lower-body) and Steve Sullivan (lower-body) would not face the Rangers.
“All the players at this point in time are expected to be ready to start the playoffs,” head coach Dan Bylsma told the Penguins Report. “They certainly won’t be playing tonight and are uncertain for the weekend. But they’re expected to be returning for the playoffs when they start.”
