Marcel Goc and Andrew Ebbett will sit out Tuesday's tilt with the Philadelphia Flyers.

If your pool rewards faceoff wins and hits, then Goc is a good player for depth as he has just four points and 36 shots on goal through 41 games this season. Goc has 51 hits and has won 54% of his faceoffs with 224 wins overall. Ebbett however has no value to speak of.

After blocking a shot off his foot Friday night, Goc will have to sit out Saturday. He is listed as day-to-day and Penguins coach, Mike Johnston, believes the injury is not too serious. Andrew Ebbett was called up from the AHL and will take Goc's place centering Zach Sill and Craig Adams. Pascal Dupuis (blood clot) and Beau Bennett (LBI) continue to be sidelined.

Marcel Goc (ankle) said he feels good but his participation in Game 5 will be a coach's decision.

He has been sidelined since Mar. 27 with an ankle injury. Goc skated on the team's fourth line again during Saturday's game-day skate. He could help the Penguins on the penalty kill and on faceoffs, so look for him to play.

Center Marcel Goc (ankle) seems poised to make his series debut on Saturday.

Goc was inserted into the Pens' fourth line during the Pens' practice on Friday. The Penguins and Blue Jackets meet for Game 5 in their playoff series Saturday. "I feel good," said Goc, who was acquired from Florida at the deadline in exchange for draft picks. "We’ll see if coach puts me in or not." Goc skated on a line with left wing Tanner Glass and right wing Craig Adams Friday morning. He said such a grouping should be a disruptive force against the fast and physical Blue Jackets. "If we can chip in a goal, I think that would be a big help for the team," said Goc, who missed the final nine games of the regular season because of a foot injury. "But be physical, be hard to play against and get the other team off their game." Goc had 11 goals and 12 assists in 62 games for Florida before being acquired by the Penguins at the deadline. The German-born center had no goals and two assists in 12 games for the Penguins before suffering his injury.
