New York Rangers v Pittsburgh Penguins

UPDATE: According to multiple reports, Del Zotto will not face a suspension by the league.

The Pittsburgh Penguins, who had dropped two in a row after a 15 game winning streak in March, got back in the win column last night against the New York Rangers, but it may have come with another long-term injury to one of their top players.

Since acquiring Jarome Iginla from the Flames, the Penguins lost captain Sidney Crosby for an indefinite period after taking a puck to the face last Saturday, and last night, late in the third period, lost James Neal, who was hit by a Michael Del Zotto elbow to the head.

 

The Penguins have not updated Neal’s condition, but we should hear more soon. Del Zotto will likely be hearing from the league on this one however.
