Tanev (upper body) practiced in full with the Penguins on Friday but won't be available for Saturday's regular-season finale versus Buffalo.

Tanev has been sidelined for the Penguins' last 17 outings due to his upper-body issue but he's trending in the right direction for a postseason return. With the late-season emergence of Frederick Gaudreau (five points in his last five games), Tanev figures to reunite with Zach Aston-Reese and Teddy Blueger on the fourth line once he's given the green light to return.
