Kennedy, Crosby skate with team, but out tonight
DALLAS -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Tyler Kennedy skated with his teammates Wednesday morning, as did Sidney Crosby, but neither of them figure to play tonight.

"Tyler Kennedy was back on the ice with the team for the first time in a morning skate," said Penguins coach Dan Bylsma. "Lineup will be game-time at this point in time and Marc-Andre Fleury will start in the net. Sidney skated with the team because he likes skating with people on the ice. He skated today because Tyler was going to be back on the ice with the team."
   
Kennedy hasn't played since Feb. 5 due to a high ankle sprain that was expected to sideline him from 4-6 weeks.

Forward Arron Asham, who missed Sunday's win against Columbus with an upper-body injury, will be a game-time decision. Bylsma said the decision will be made after Asham skates in pre-game warm-ups.
