Kunitz has left #Penguins practice early. He's one of the players who has been dealing with something minor.

Pittsburgh Penguins @penguins

Kunitz had excused absence from practice. He is NOT injured. Malkin, Conner, Vitale skate prior to practice, per #Pens coach Bylsma

No, a high school team has more discipline and actually practices regularly.

At least they figured out Megna is better the Payerl on a line with Pyatt and Adams. Baby steps.

So it doesn't look like they're sitting their top players out tomorrow. I'm hoping that there won't be any new entries in the injury thread as a result of this.

It sure didn't sound as if #Penguins plan to rest players tomorrow vs. Flyers. We'll see.

Well at least Rinaldo isn't playing due to his suspension.

That 2nd line is brutal. Do the Pens have shootout competition where if you lose you get Gibbons on your line?

If you go into the game thinking you need to stay healthy, you're probably gonna **** up

I think of this game as a Lose/lose situation... either we lose...to Philly... again, or we win and are one step closer to facing them in the first round. I Hate Philly... I hate that place so bad I almost root against Rocky... I never want them to win a cup... ever... and I cant stomach the thought that we will probably be a walkover win for them in the playoffs...

I'd be all for it. Worked against the Avs. Philly might interpret calling up a bunch of AHL guys as an invitation for a brawl, though.

I'd rather see Engo dressed on the 4th line against Philly than Megna at this point. It's pretty clear Megna won't be playing as soon as one of the fwds gets healthy anyhow. I just wouldn't put it past Philly doing something stupid tomorrow even without Rinaldo and I certainly don't trust Glass/Adams to police the situation, especially with Bort unlikely to be dressed.

I'd honestly rather avoid injuries against the Sens. Chris Neil is as big a loser as anyone on the Flyers.

That still doesn't explain how Adams and Pyatt are justified on this team. This team's 4th line is probably one of the worst in the entire NHL

Adams, Pyatt, Glass

I love how they try to hide one of these 4th line guys on the 3rd line.
