Pittsburgh Penguins’ forward James Neal missed his second consecutive practice Tuesday, and is dealing with an upper-body injury – according to Sam Kasan of the team’s website.
Neal, who doesn’t have the same injury that kept him out 15 games earlier in the season, is listed as day-to-day and hasn’t been ruled out for Wednesday’s matchup against Washington – per Kasan.
As of right now, consider Neal a game-time decision for tomorrow.
Forward Pascal Dupuis, who left the game on Dec. 23 with a torn ACL, is reportedly still yet to have surgery and no date has been set- according to Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Dupuis will likely miss the rest of the season. He played in 39 games for Pittsburgh, collecting 20 points (7G, 13A) and skating to a plus-6 rating.
Pittsburgh also placed forward Joe Vitale on injured reserve with a upper-body injury – per Kasan. Vitale has performed in 44 contests, and collected 13 points (1G, 12A) while skating to a plus-1 rating.
Vitale is one point shy of tying his career-high for an NHL season.
