Penguins forward Petr Sykora will miss his third straight game with an undisclosed injury when Pittsburgh takes on the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena Thursday at 7 p.m.
Sykora, who skated before the team's morning skate, is listed as day-to-day.
Meanwhile, goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury
looks to hit two milestones in his 17th straight start in net for the Penguins. A victory for Fleury will give him a career-high eight consecutive wins and move the netminder into second place on the Penguins' all-time wins list (currently tied, Ken Wregget, 104).
