Kunitz is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Despite getting bumped down to the Penguins' second line, Kunitz is quietly compiling stats -- he's got two goals, six helpers and 54 hits while averaging 16:11 of ice time per night. The team did not provide a timeline for his absence and has not ruled him out Friday against the Islanders. If Kunitz is unable to give it a go, Pittsburgh may decide to keep Tom Sestito on the 23-man roster if he clears waivers rather than bringing in a replacement from the minors.
