Kuhnhackl (lower body) won't suit up for Friday's Game 4 against the Senators.

Kuhnhackl has been a healthy scratch for Pittsburgh's last four contests, but he's now dealing with an injury that will keep him sidelined rather than a coach's decision. Bryan Rust (upper body) and Patric Hornqvist (upper body) will also miss Game 4, so coach Mike Sullivan may opt to use seven defensemen Friday in an attempt to contain an Ottawa offense that racked up five goals in Game 3.
