Glass in, Bennett out of Penguins lineup

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Tanner Glass will return to the lineup for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Second Round series against the New York Rangers.

Glass replaced Beau Bennett in the lineup and took line rushes during warm-ups alongside Brandon Sutter and Lee Stempniak. Glass last played in Game 1 against the Rangers. In seven games during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Glass has four penalty minutes and 10 shots on goal.

The Penguins changed their top two lines, putting Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin on separate lines for the first time in the series. Crosby skated with Chris Kunitz and Brian Gibbons, and Malkin was between Jussi Jokinen and James Neal.

There were no lineup changes for the Rangers, who won two straight to force Game 7. Daniel Carcillo and Derek Dorsett skated in warm-ups, but when they broke into line rushes, Dorsett was right wing on the fourth line, alongside Brian Boyle and Dominic Moore.

Here are the lineups:
