The Penguins sent defenseman Alex Goglioski back down to the WBS squad and recalled Chris Minard and Connor James. Goglioski spent only one week with the Pens, skating for less than 10 minutes in the 2-1 Boston loss and recording no points in the effort. Forwards Minard and James should hopefully add some much needed punch to the otherwise lackluster offense.
Marc-Andre Fleury watched his rehabilitation record fall to 1-1 with a 1-0 loss to the Philadelphia Phantoms last night. He stopped 26 of 27 shots.
Amidst the controversy of his sour play Wednesday night, Erik Christensen was benched Thursday for what appeared to many as a disciplinary action from Coach Therrien. In actuality, Christensen suffered a minor shoulder injury in the 2-1 loss to the Bruins but is expected to return within the week.
