Game 1 personnel update: Chris Kunitz IN, Tyler Kennedy OUT

New, comments


From the team:

Pens winger Chris Kunitz just informed the media that he will play in Game 1 of the semifinals against the Montreal Canadiens at Mellon Arena tonight.

Head coach Dan Bylsma did confirm that winger Tyler Kennedy will not be in the lineup, and will not take pre-game warmups with the team.

Also Jordan Leopold (head) remains out, but that should come as no surprise.

It's expected that Chris Conner and not Ruslan Fedotenko will dress.  Projected lines:

Kunitz-Crosby-Guerin
Talbot-Malkin-Ponikarovsky
Cooke-Staal-Dupuis
Rupp-Adams-Conner
