Kennedy out for Penguins against Islanders

Tyler Kennedy will sit out the Pittsburgh Penguins' game against the New York Islanders on Friday night due to illness.

Kennedy took part in the morning skate at Nassau Coliseum but was not on the ice for pregame warmups, and the Penguins announced about 20 minutes before game time that Kennedy would not play due to an illness.

The Penguins are without star center Evgeni Malkin (upper body) and No. 1 defenseman Kris Letang (lower body). They bring a 10-game winning streak into the game.

Quote of the Day

I think when you build a team, you look at pairs, and I think the pair of [Voracek and Giroux] is very good, certainly one of the top pairs in the League.
