Tuesday Practice UPDATE 11/20

Tuesday, November 20, 2012
The Penguins practiced at Coal Street Rink today and for the first time in awhile (maybe the first time this season), every player on the active roster skated in at least some capacity.

After missing yesterday's practice, Brian Strait practiced in a regular jersey today. Initially he wasn't paired with his usual partner in crime on the blue line, Robert Bortuzzo, but by the end of the session he stepped in with the top units and looked ready to play.

I talked to head coach John Hynes about seeing everyone skating and he said it's a good thing to have everyone back. A subtle way of saying Strait is ready to return to the lineup?

With the exception of Zach Sill, who told fans as he was leaving the ice today that he will be back in "a few weeks", everyone is a go for tomorrow night's game against the Hershey Bears.

Same lines as yesterday's practice up front. Take special notice of that 4th line if indeed all three make the lineup tomorrow night.

Dupuis - Smith - Tangradi
Ferriero - Megna - Holzapfel
Thompson - Peters - Bennett
MacIntyre - Farnham - Veilleux
Gibbons - Uher - Kuhnhackl

Bortuzzo - Despres/Strait
Reese - Morrow
Dumoulin - Samuelsson
Mormina - Grant
