Penguins' Chris Kunitz: Unlikely to return soon

Kunitz (lower body) continues to make progress but isn't close to returning, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Pittsburgh's power play is scoreless in its last 13 attempts, largely due to the absence of Kunitz and Patric Hornqvist (concussion). Coach Mike Sullivan noted that he hopes to have Hornqvist back in the lineup "soon" but that Kunitz is "not as close" to returning.
