NEW YORK -- Pittsburgh Penguins wing Pascal Dupuis left the game Wednesday night against the New York Rangers with an unspecified injury and did not return.

Penguins coach Dan Bylsma did not have much to say about Dupuis' status after a 5-1 loss at Madison Square Garden.

"Not at this point, no," was all Bylsma said when asked if he had any updates on Dupuis.

Dupuis left with 3:51 remaining in the second period; his final shift came immediately after Ryan Callahan scored to put the Rangers up 4-1. At the end of the shift, Dupuis took Mats Zuccurello into the boards while on the backcheck before heading straight to the Pittsburgh bench.

In 16 games this season, Dupuis has two goals and 11 points. The 34-year-old has missed 13 games since the 2008-09 season.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
