Wednesday’s Practice News and Notes
It was believed defenseman Philippe Boucher would return to practice this week and Boucher took the ice this morning at Mellon Arena. Boucher who under-went foot surgery in February will be available to come off of IR in about 10 days according to sources.
* Right winger Petr Sykors skated for the first time in about 5 days this morning. Sykora has missed the Penguins past two games and is battling through a shoulder/rib injury that has been bothering him since the start of the Penguins 5 game road trip in Chicago
Sykora skated for about
25-30 minutes and was shooting the puck well. Taking a slap shot still bothers him a bit but Sykora has not been ruled out for tomorrow’s game. He was getting treatment after the skate and will give it a go at the morning skate in Columbus on Thursday.
The vibe I got is Marc Andre Fleury will start against Columbus and Mathieu Garon will start on Saturday.
