Brooks Orpik Doubtful For Game 1


Pittsburgh Penguins’ defenseman Brooks Orpik reportedly missed practice Friday – according to the Pens’ Twitter handle – making him doubtful for Game 1 of the quarterfinals against the New York Rangers.

Robert Bortuzzo practiced in Orpik’s place – per Pens’ Twitter handle – and will in all likelihood suit up for Pittsburgh.

Orpik hasn’t done hockey activities since he left practice a week ago, and there continues to be no update on his situation.

Game 1 can be seen on the NBC Sports Network, and is set to start at 7 p.m.
