Report: Neal & Orpik Practice Monday, Questionable For Tuesday


According to Sam Kasan of the official Pittsburgh Penguins website, injured Penguins’ forward James Neal and defenseman Brooks Orpik both participated in the teams optional practice Monday afternoon on Long Island.

Neal hasn’t played since he went down with a lower-body injury in Game 1 and Orpik has missed the last five games with the same diagnosis.

They’ll both be game-time decisions for Tuesday’s Game 4.

When Neal re-enter’s the lineup there will be a question as to who’ll sit. We’ll have to wait and see what Bylsma decides to do, it’ll most likely come down to young forward Beau Bennett or gritty winger Tanner Glass.

Game 4 in Long Island Tuesday at 7:00 p.m.
