Scott Wilson didn't play on Friday due to a lower-body injury.

We don't know much about Wilson's injury, other than Penguins coach Mike Sullivan describing it as nagging. Wilson has seven goals and 23 points in 70 games in 2016-17.
Mar 25 - 10:48 AM

Marc-Andre Fleury allowed three goals on 46 shots in Friday's 4-3 shootout loss the New York Islanders.

Fleury gave up two more goals in the shootout. His record now falls to 18-8-7 on the season. He'll enter his next start with a 2.93 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage. As long as Matt Murray is healthy, Fleury won't be worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.

Matt Cullen scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Islanders.

Cullen picked up the primary assist on Cameron Gaunce's second-period goal to give the Penguins a 1-0 lead. Cullen also added a goal of his own at the 13:50 mark of the third frame to tie the game at three. The veteran finished the game with a plus-1 rating and three shots on goal in 18:28 of ice time. Cullen has 11 goals and 16 assists this season. Sidney Crosby scored the other goal for the Penguins.
Mar 24 - 10:27 PM

Frank Corrado will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the New York Islanders.

The Penguins will go with Brian Dumoulin, Justin Schultz, Ian Cole, Chad Ruhwedel, Cameron Gaunce and Mark Streit. Scott Wilson is also expected to watch the game from the press box.
Mar 24 - 6:45 PM

Bryan Rust (upper body) will return to the Penguins lineup on Friday night.

He'll be skating on a line with Matt Cullen and Phil Kessel. Rust hasn't played in a game since Feb. 9. He has 12 goals and 25 points in 50 games.
Mar 24 - 6:40 PM

Bryan Rust (upper body) is a game-time decision on Friday.

Rust last played on Feb. 9. He has 12 goals and 25 points in 50 games this season.
Mar 24 - 5:24 PM

The Penguins plan to start Marc-Andre Fleury Friday night.

Matt Murray got the nod on Thursday, so it's not surprising to see Fleury get a start here. Fleury has a 2.94 GAA and .911 save percentage in 35 contests this season.
Mar 24 - 5:22 PM

Matt Murray allowed one goal on 30 shots in Pittsburgh's 2-1 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators.

Murray didn't give up a goal until the 9:43 mark of the third period, but he also allowed two goals in the shootout. Murray now owns a 28-9-4 record with a 2.34 goals-against-average and a .925 save percentage. He could be one of the first goalies selected in playoff fantasy leagues.
Mar 23 - 11:21 PM

Nick Bonino found the back of the net in Thursday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators.

Bonino's power play goal at the 9:21 mark of the second period gave Pittsburgh a 1-0 lead at the time. Unfortunately for the Pens, the Senators tied the game in the third frame before winning it in the shootout. Bonino now has 16 goals and 16 assists in 72 games this season.
Mar 23 - 11:09 PM

Matt Murray is projected to face Ottawa on Thursday.

Murray was the first goalie off the ice following the morning skate, which is usually a good gauge of who the starter will be. He's been a bit of a mixed bag lately, allowing at least three goals in four games this month. Still, he's 5-1 in seven games with 14 goals against and a .913 save percentage in March.
Mar 23 - 4:37 PM

Bryan Rust took part in Thursday's skate with a normal jersey on, but is not expected to play against Ottawa.

Rust has been out of the lineup since Feb. 9th with an upper body injury. Through 50 games prior to the injury, Rust posted 12 goals and 25 points along with 83 hits.
Mar 23 - 4:07 PM

Jake Guentzel (concussion) was not at practice on Thursday.

Given the nature of his ailment, we don't expect him to play tonight against Ottawa. Consider him day-to-day, for now.
Mar 23 - 1:33 PM

Evgeni Malkin (shoulder) didn't join the team for practice on Thursday ahead of the evening's match with Ottawa.

Which likely indicates that the all-world center won't play tonight, though nothing is official just yet. We'll keep you posted.
Mar 23 - 1:32 PM

Josh Archibald was summoned up from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Thursday.

The 24-year-old has two goals in four career NHL games, both coming this season in three games. Archibald also has 16 goals and 29 points with 39 PIMs in 60 games down on the farm.
Mar 23 - 1:03 PM

Jake Guentzel suffered a concussion on Tuesday, according to head coach Mike Sullivan.

Guentzel left the game after being flattened by Sabres defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen (you can watch the play by clicking the link at the bottom of the page). He obviously did not return. We'll consider him day-to-day at this point. It's a tough blow for the Penguins, as they're already without Evgeni Malkin, Carl Hagelin, Tom Sestito and Ron Hainsey.
