Pittsburgh Penguins practice update: Maatta and Fleury advance; Malkin, Murray don't practice

New, comments

Mixed news today out of Pittsburgh Penguins practice today: Marc-Andre Fleury and Olli Maatta take further steps in their recoveries, as does Beau Bennett but no sign of Evgeni Malkin, Bryan Rust or Matt Murray

All the latest from Penguins practice, where the top three forward lines looked the same again.

Marc-Andre Fleury

A step forward today for the Pens franchise goalie:

We'll see how tomorrow goes, but as of now it seems to look like Fleury is on pace to be back in the crease sooner than later.


Olli Maatta

Even better news for Maatta, who advanced from skating with Derrick Pouliot yesterday back up to his normal first pair partner with Kris Letang. The Pens second pairing has reverted back to Trevor Daley and Brian Dumoulin.

Ben Lovejoy was playing Pouliot as the likely two odd-men out.


Evgeni Malkin, Matt Murray and Bryan Rust

All weren't around for reporters, it's possible they could have worked individually at some point this morning however it's probably about time to rule them out for at least the beginning of the series.

Beau Bennett

Oh, hey a Bennett sighting!

Rangers update

Oh this is too good to be true
