BENNETT OUT
Forward Beau Bennett will be out for "a couple of weeks" with his lower-body injury, according to coach Johnston. Jayson Megna will get a long look in his place. It's another tough blow for Bennett, who can't seem to shake the injury bug.

The Pens are on the ice for their morning skate. It appears to be the first optional skate (confirmed by coach Johnston) of the season as several players are absent. MIA are Paul Martin, Christian Ehrhoff, Chris Kunitz, Beau Bennett (lower-body) and Evgeni Malkin.

As such, the team did not work in lines.
