Insider Only Saturday’s Practice Report: Orpik unlikely to play against the Rangers; Crosby practices

Defenseman Brooks Orpik did not practice today and is doubtful for tomorrow’s game. Orpik is day-to-day. Read more for the latest practice updates on Pascal Dupuis, Kris Letang, Rob Scuderi, Max Talbot and Sidney Crosby.

The Penguins could be missing another defenseman tomorrow as Brooks Orpik did not practice today and will likely not play against the Rangers on Sunday.
The good news for the Penguins — Kris Letang and Rob Scuderi appear ready to return to the lineup. Both are expected to be available. Letang skated today and felt much better than he did yesterday.
Sources tell me Philippe Boucher will remain in the lineup tomorrow. With Orpik out and Letang/Scuderi due to return, Eaton or Goligoski will be the odd man out.
Sidney Crosby skated today and will be a game time decision. Crosby skated much harder than he did yesterday.
The Penguins are still being mum as to whether forward Max Talbot has a dislocated shoulder. I’ve been told he could be out for 3-4 weeks.
Pascal Dupuis skated again this morning and has not ruled out playing against the Rangers. His skating has improved the past two days.
