Neal, Orpik sit for Penguins
While the Penguins have Sidney Crosby back in the lineup on Friday, forward James Neal and Brooks Orpik will sit out with injuries.

The Pittsburgh Penguins had Sidney Crosby back in the lineup Friday night for Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the New York Islanders. But two other Pittsburgh regulars were out of the lineup with injuries.

Forward James Neal, who left Game 1 with a lower-body injury, did not practice Thursday and was a scratch for Game 2. He joins defenseman Brooks Orpik, who missed Game 1 with a lower-body injury.

The Penguins did dress Jussi Jokinen, who left Game 1 with a lower-body injury but was able to practice Thursday and was in the lineup for Game 2.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
