Marc-Andre Fleury says he's had no setbacks since suffering his most recent concussion.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) April 12, 2016
The lack of work for Jarry COULD indicate that the Penguins believe the two goalies in drills -- Fleury and Zatkoff -- will dress for Game 1— Dave Molinari (@MolinariPG) April 12, 2016
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.
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.
Now Maatta with Letang on the first pair. Dumoulin-Daley the second pair.— Jonathan Bombulie (@BombulieTrib) April 12, 2016
Olli Maatta speaking very positively about his chances of playing for #pens in Game 1. He still needs final clearance tomorrow.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) April 12, 2016
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.
@PensJG was Malkin shooting on net earlier?— Brann Bronzebeard (@duper1337) April 12, 2016
Oh, hey a Bennett sighting!
Bennett rotating in with Sheary, Sundqvist, Sestito on the fourth line.— Jonathan Bombulie (@BombulieTrib) April 12, 2016
Oh this is too good to be true
