Pens Injury Report 4/23: Gibbons Absent from Practice


 

Pittsburgh Penguins’ forward Brian Gibbons reportedly missed Wednesday’s practice, while forwards Chris Conner and Marcel Goc each were able to participate – according to Sam Kasan of the team’s website and the Pens’ Twitter handle.

Gibbons’ skated two days in-a-row, but his absence from Wednesday’s practice is a clear indication that he won’t suit up for the Pens’ Game 4 against Columbus. Gibbons’ injury is unknown, after leaving Game 2 with just 2:26-minutes played on the stat-sheet.

Conner and Goc have now been practicing consistently. Goc was first assumed not to play in the first-round – per Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review – however, should the series be lengthy, we could see him making an appearance. Conner – although probably close to full-health – will probably not play due to the current forward depth.

Pittsburgh will look to take a 3-1 lead in the series, Wednesday.

Game 4 can be seen on the NBC Sports Network, and is set to start at 7 p.m.
