News
Fleury allowed three goals on 46 shots in Friday's 4-3 shootout against the Islanders.

Fleury was peppered with shots all evening, including 21 shots alone in the final period of regulation. All things considered it was actually a pretty solid showing. As a result of the loss Matt Murray is likely to get the starting nod at home against the Flyers next time out.

News
Streit tallied just his second assist in his last eight games Thursday against Ottawa.

Despite cooling off, the 39-year-old has scored one goal and five assists in 11 games for Pittsburgh. In fact, all five of his helpers have come on the power play. With the team's defensive corps short-handed for the foreseeable future, Streit figures to continue seeing plenty of opportunity on the man advantage.

News
Kessel tallied a pair of assists and recorded five shots in Friday's loss to the Islanders.

He's scored just one goal in his last 18 games, playing with a revolving cast of linemates. Kessel's effort to win Friday's game in overtime was breathtaking, with the forward orchestrating three rushes from the neutral zone on the same shift. He's struggling to put the puck in the net but does have nine assists over his goal-scoring slump.

News
Bonino netted his 16th goal of the season, a power-play effort, in a 2-1 shootout loss to Ottawa on Thursday.

He continues to rake with seven goals in his last nine contests. Bonino, who registered a season-high six shots Thursday, saw the fourth-most minutes (19:00) among Pittsburgh forwards. He had a tough night in the faceoff circle, losing 12 of 18 draws, but otherwise excelled against the Sens.

News
Murray made 29 saves in a 2-1 shootout loss to Ottawa on Thursday.

He was unable to hold down a one-goal lead heading into the third period and then allowed shootout goals to both shooters he faced. Murray has improved his play in his last couple starts but will likely give way to Marc-Andre Fleury at home against the Islanders on Friday.

News
Sheary posted an assist and plus-1 rating in Friday's 4-3 shootout loss against the Islanders.

Sheary has managed four goals with 15 points and a plus-8 rating across 12 games in the month of March. He has at least 12 points in each of his past three months, emerging as a must-start fantasy option in all formats. Skating on the top scoring line with Sidney Crosby will do that for you.

Injuries
Concussion - Day-to-Day (Updated - 3/23/17)
News
Guentzel (concussion) missed the Penguins' game-day practice Thursday, effectively ruling him out versus Ottawa, Sam Werner of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Guentzel, who left Tuesday's matchup after a questionable hit from Buffalo's Rasmus Ristolainen, should probably be considered doubtful Friday's contest given the tight timeline with back-to-back contests. Prior to getting hurt, the winger had racked up 10 points in as many games playing alongside Sidney Crosby. With concussions notoriously difficult to pin down, it is unclear how long the 22-year-old might be sidelined.
