PITTSBURGH -- Despite missing the morning skate Monday because he was sick, New York Rangers defenseman Keith Yandle is expected to play against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Consol Energy Center in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference First Round series (7 p.m. ET: NBCSN, CBC, TVA, ROOT, MSG).
The best-of-7 series is tied, 1-1.
"He just wasn't feeling well this morning, he'll be in the lineup tonight," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said of Yandle. "He's taking fluids and should be good to go."
Klein is not expected to play in Game 3, but his return to full practice was a positive sign for his availability later in the series against the Penguins.
