Penguins Tuesday Practice Update: Reese (DTD) Ruled Out Tomorrow, Peters Not Suspended

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

A few things to note after today's practice at Coal Street:
  • Defenseman Dylan Reese (below), who hasn't played since taking a high hit from Providence's Bobby Robins in Game One, came out on the ice about halfway through the team's practice sporting a red no-contact jersey. Head coach John Hynes said Reese is "day-to-day" and will not be available for tomorrow night's Game Three. He didn't leave out the possibility that Reese could return this weekend. 

  • It doesn't look like a suspension is coming to Warren Peters for his hit on Bruins defenseman Zach Trotman. Mark Divver, Bruins beat writer for the Providence Journal, tweeted earlier this afternoon that the Bruins were told no suspension was coming to Peters. Divver also reported that Trotman has been ruled out for the rest of this series. 
  • Coach Hynes told the media he wasn't set on a starter in net for Game Three tomorrow night and that he would talk to the staff this afternoon before making a decision and letting the goaltenders know either tonight or tomorrow morning.
  • After last Friday's 8-5 loss in Game One, coach Hynes did a complete overhaul of the lines for Game Two. The lines in today's practice sort of reverted back to the lines the Penguins have used in recent weeks with two exceptions: Chris Minella inserted on the 4th line and Derek Nesbitt added to the top line with Trevor Smith and Chad Kolarik. Take a look:
Nesbitt - Smith - Kolarik                          
Collins - Gibbons - Thompson
Holzapfel - Peters - Payerl
Minella - Sill - Megna

Dumoulin - Samuelsson
Mormina - Grant
McNeill - Wild
