  • Penguins' Justin Schultz: Will miss Game 5
    By RotoWire Staff

    Schultz (upper body) isn't in the lineup for Game 5 against Ottawa on Sunday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports. While the Pens are missing a number of players due to injury, perhaps none is as impactful as Schultz, who had eight points in 14 playoff games before getting injured in Game 2 against Ottawa. As the series gets closer to a clinching scenario, the reigning Stanley Cup champs would love to have him back.

  • Schultz's (upper body) status for Game 5 on Sunday is still in question, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports. The defenseman is a great two-way player and his absence in the last two games has been felt on both ends of the ice. If he comes back, his presence on the power play would be a huge boost, as he had 20 points on the man advantage in the regular season.

  • Schultz (upper body) remains day-to-day, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports. The Penguins looked completely lost without Schultz in Game 3 -- managing just one goal while allowing five -- but Friday's result was much better with the arctic birds limiting the Senators to two scores in the equalizing win. To illustrate just how important he is to the club, recall that Schultz led all Pittsburgh defensemen in points (51) during the regular season -- also, no other Pen topped his plus-27 rating. He's bound to be reevaluated by Sunday morning, ahead of Game 5 at home.

  • Penguins' Justin Schultz: Will not play Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Schultz (upper body) will sit out for the second consecutive contest Friday, when the Penguins face the Senators for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The Penguins reportedly will be without forwards Bryan Rust (upper body) and Patric Hornqvist (upper body) as well. This really weakens a power-play unit that has managed to rank sixth through 15 playoff games, and being without a mobile puck mover like Schultz hurts Pittsburgh's chances of dominating possession. However, the silver lining is that the Pens have Trevor Daley back from a lower-body injury, and he'll try to shore up the defensive corps with Schultz out for another pivotal road match.

  • Schultz (upper body) will likely watch Game 4 against the Senators from the press box Friday, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports. Schultz has been a strong performer through 14 playoff games, recording two goals and six assists. Head coach Mike Sullivan all but ruled him out, saying he was "probably not probable." If Schultz is unable to go, Trevor Daley will continue to fill the void.
