Maatta to play for Penguins in Game 6

by Mike G. Morreale

NEW YORK -- Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta will be in the lineup for Game 6 against the New York Rangers in their Eastern Conference Second Round series at Madison Square Garden on Sunday (7 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

The Penguins lead the best-of-7 series, 3-2.

Maatta, who did not participate in the morning skate for the Penguins on Sunday due to a reported illness, was paired with his usual partner Matt Niskanen during pre-game warmups.

Deryk Engelland, who took Maatta's spot during the morning skate, will serve as a healthy scratch.

Maatta has two assists and a plus-one rating in 11 games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs this spring. Engelland has yet to play in a game in the postseason.
