Pens Injury Report 5/9: Brooks Orpik Likely Out For Game 5


Pittsburgh Penguins’ defenseman Brooks Orpik reportedly missed practice Friday – according to the Pens’ Twitter handle – and is unlikely to play in Game 5.

Orpik left Wednesday’s Game 4 after the first period and did not return.

Head coach Dan Bylsma indicated that Orpik’s current injury is a different type than the prior one he suffered which caused him to miss five games.

Robert Bortuzzo will in all likelihood slot in Orpik’s place.

Game 5 can be seen on the NBC Sports Network, and is set to start at 7 p.m.
