Penguins winger Bill Guerin, who didn’t practice this morning, is out with an undisclosed injury for tonight’s Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Montreal Canadiens.
Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said Guerin missed the morning skate for “maintenance” reasons, and is expected to update Guerin’s status after the game.
It will be interesting to see who skates on the Sidney Crosby-Chris Kunitz line, although Pascal Dupuis appears to be a likely candidate if, as expected, the second line consists of Evgeni Malkin-Alexei Ponikarovsky-Max Talbot.
Bylsma already said he intended to play Mark Letestu, who could center the third line with Matt Cooke and Tyler Kennedy.
Another option could be Chris Conner.
