From Pens Report:
LETANG, NISKANEN UPDATES
Head coach Dan Bylsma said that both players skated Monday and are progressing. He didn’t say they were quite ready to return Wednesday, but also didn’t rule them out.
On Niskanen and Letang:
When they do come back, they’ll both play. I don’t think there’s any mystery there. I think Matt Niskanen is 17 days into his 2-4 week (timeframe) and had two full practices with the team. He’s doing and progressing well. Hopefully that means he returns to play here soon. We’ll see how he responds today. Kris Letang had a full day today. We had some contact drills, we had some D-zone, so it was a pretty stressful day on a lower-body injury and he did pretty well. We’ll see where that is for both of them going into tomorrow’s game and the weekend.
On if they skated Monday:
They did both skate yesterday.
On if they could be game-time decisions for Wednesday:
I’m not going to put them there right now, but yes, it could be that tomorrow (they are game-time decisions). They’re both day-to-day right now, so it could be tomorrow that they’re game-time decisions.
