Matheson (lower body) is considered day-to-day despite missing Wednesday's practice session.

Matheson is reportedly dealing with a nagging injury issue, so the Penguins may decide to shut him down against Florida on Thursday to allow him to get back to 100 percent. If the 27-year-old blueliner does miss another game, it would open up a spot in the lineup for Mark Friedman -- who played Tuesday versus the Lightning -- or Pierre-Olivier Joseph.
