With 16.8 seconds remaining the period, Scuderi was checked by Maple Leafs forward David Clarkson along the boards. Scuderi dropped to the ice and needed assistance to get off the ice and to the dressing room. He was not on the bench at the start of the second period and did not return to the game, a 4-1 victory by the Maple Leafs.
Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said there was no definitive news on the lower-body injury and that Scuderi would be evaluated back in Pittsburgh.
There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
