PITTSBURGH, PA – Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan today announced that his entire lineup should be considered day-to-day for the remainder of the series against the New York Rangers.
Citing "injuries and stuff," Sullivan told the assembled media ahead of game two that it's best to just consider the possibility of the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins suiting up for all of the remaining games against their Metropolitan division rivals.
"We've decided to call up all of the WBS Pens just in case all of our guys pull up sore or something," Sullivan said. "They might play, they might not play."
"They should all be considered week-to-week, or day-to-day right now. Whatever floats your boat."
In addition, Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford announced the signing of local 18-year-old high schooler, Freddie Leroux, as a precaution in case the team's fifth-string goaltender, Sean Maguire, is unable to suit up in place of Tristan Jarry today.
Upon hearing the roster news, Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault announced that his side was a game-time decision, too.
