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

I'm sure [my father] was going crazy up there. I hope all of my friends were celebrating in the crowd. Coming back here and all of my friends and family are here, getting a goal in front of them is special.
