Vitale is one of the first on the ice and practicing with the team. Good sign after taking that puck to the face. Niskanen, Neal, and Sullivan are missing. Updates to follow on reasons.
Pens have worked on regular PP and a 5 on 3 PP for the most part. More to follow.
Per Bylsma: Niskanen with upper body injury, Neal with lower body injury, and Sullivan with lower body injury. They will not be in the lineup tonight, but expected to be ready for playoffs.
Flower to start in the net against Rangers Biron.
