Penguins' Bryan Rust: Close to return
Rust (undisclosed) won't play Monday but is close to making his season debut. "He's getting very close to clearance," coach Mike Sulllivan said. "I would envision he would be a coach's decision here really shortly."
Rust scored six goals and nine points in 23 postseason games last spring after scoring only 11 points in 41 regular-season contests. He could be back in the lineup as soon as Tuesday.
