Bylsma: Kunitz Out; Fleury in Net

by Staff Writer / Pittsburgh Penguins
BOSTON -- Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma said that left winger Chris Kunitz will not play Saturday night vs. Boston in a 5 p.m. meeting with the media.

"Chris Kunitz will not be playing tonight," Bylsma said. "The response of his injury to the increased workload isn't where it needs to be to play without fear of hurting the injury further."

When asked if Kunitz could play next Tuesday against Buffalo, Bylsma responded: "Let's hope so."

Bylsma also noted the goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury will start in net. Then he jokingly added: "Kris Letang will be playing."

When asked if Letang would be playing for more than two minutes, he responded with a smile: "I hope so."
