Morrow out, Jokinen and Bennett dress for Penguins
Brenden Morrow was not in Pittsburgh’s lineup for Game 4 against the Ottawa Senators, while Beau Bennett and Jussi Jokinen did dress for the Penguins.

OTTAWA – Left wing Brenden Morrow was not in the Pittsburgh Penguins' lineup for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place on Wednesday night.

Morrow left practice early on Tuesday and did not take part in the optional morning skate Wednesday.

His spot at left wing on the third line with Brandon Sutter and Matt Cooke was filled by Tyler Kennedy, who moves up from the fourth line. Kennedy's spot was filled by rookie Beau Bennett, who suited up for the first time since Game 3 of the first round against the New York Islanders, a span of six games.

Bennett scored a goal in his first career playoff game in Game 1 of the first round and went pointless in his next two games.

As expected, Jussi Jokinen dressed for the first time since Game 4 of the first round, centering the Penguins' fourth line with Bennett and Craig Adams. Jokinen had two assists in Game 1 against the Islanders and was held off the score sheet in his next three games.

Tanner Glass was scratched after playing 9:56 in the Penguins' double-overtime loss in Game 3.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
