"They'll all be out for tonight, but they're day-to-day with upper-body injuries", coach Mike Sullivan said of the trio.

The good news is that Trevor Daley appears to be returning. The 39-year-old took reps on the club's first power play unit on Wednesday morning.

Streit hasn't played in the postseason this year but has 784 career National Hockey League regular-season games under his belt, experience captain Sidney Crosby said would be key if he joins the lineup.

Pittsburgh has been decimated by injuries all year-long, most notably with No. 1 defenceman Kris Letang out for the playoffs and No. 1 goaltender Matt Murray yet to play in the post-season. Rust and Schultz were injured in that contest, while Hornqvist sat out the game. "I think there's a lot of familiarity with the type of game that we're trying to play with our team concept", Sullivan said. The other two have been faring even better; with three goals and seven points in 13 playoff games for Hornqvist and eight points in 14 games for Schultz.

Injuries just keep piling up for the Penguins. It was his 10th career postseason shutout. It's also important to have depth in your organization for times like these when you can call up players from your AHL side and have them seamlessly transition into your forward groups or defensive pairings.
