The Penguins' website finally has some good news regarding some injuries:
Defenseman Brooks Orpik was back on the ice this morning before the Pens' practice. He suffered a broken finger Feb. 23 after blocking a shot by San Jose's Patrick Marleau. Orpik was expected to miss approx. four weeks with the injury.
Meanwhile, Mike Comrie and Arron Asham also joined Orpik on the ice prior to practice. And they were wearing full gear, a sign of their continuing progress.
Kunitz is day-to-day, and probable to play Tuesday vs. Buffalo.
It's great that these guys are getting better. Orpik and Kunitz are vital parts of the line-up. The team has been much worse in their absence.
In October who could have called that we'd be anxiously awaiting the returns of Asham & Comrie?
