Penguins forward Tyler Kennedy (right) is day-to-day due to a "lower-body" injury. He was presumably injured in the first period of last night's game 4 when he was hit along the right wing boards by Senators defenseman Andy Sutton.
A fixture on the team's third line, Kennedy has appeared in four games this postseason and has failed to record a point. He is a minus-3. In 64 games in the regular season, Kennedy had 25 points (13 goals, 12 assists) and was a plus-10.
EN Says: While Kennedy is hardly impossible to replace, this is not an insignificant loss. Kennedy led the Penguins, along with Evgeni Malkin, with three game-winning goals in last season's playoffs.
Ruslan Fedotenko would presumably replace Kennedy in the lineup should Kennedy be unable to go. Fedotenko's struggles aside, he's a pretty nice potential replacement given his history in the playoffs.
