Pens Game Day Practice 3/27/12

The Pens called up Simon Despres and Brain Strait from WBS. With having Niskanen out with a upper body injury, Lovejoy with a lower body injury, and now Tanger with lower body injury they needed the call up. They both should fill in and be comfortable the Pens are lucky to have such depth.

Sullivan was out skating with the team and will play tonight.

Tanger and Lovejoy were not at practice.

The Pens worked on the PP for quite some time. The first unit consisted of Sully and Sid on the points with Kuni, Neal, and Geno up front. The second unit was Martin and Despres at the points and Cooke, TK, and Staal.

On the injury front:

Johnson skated again with the team and is progressing well.

Lovejoy had knee surgery this morning and will be out for 3-4 weeks.

Niskanen and Vitale skated earlier. They are both day-to-day.

Tanger will not play and has a lower body injury. He is day-to-day.
