Although there may be speculation as to somebody being injured, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review doesn’t think anyone’s ailing, and it’s rather a move to give the starters rest heading towards the playoffs.
Pens have recalled Adam Payerl. Don’t believe anyone was hurt last night. Players will be given rests this week.

Payerl has collected nine points (3G, 6A) in 38 games for WBS this season, and he’ll be seeking to make his NHL debut against the Colorado Avalanche, Sunday night.
The game can be seen on the ROOT Network, and is set to start at 8 p.m.
