The Penguins have lost a couple more players to injuries this week, both of which involve surgery. Defensive defenseman, Rob Scuderi (Box 23), will undergo surgery to repair a broken finger, which will keep him out of the line-up for up to 4 weeks. The installation of Hal Gill (Box 23) came just in time to take his spot.
The other injury involves forward Adam Hall (non-pool). Hall already underwent surgery to repair a hernia and he is now expected to miss the rest of the regular season and very likely, the playoffs as well.
