It looks like Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik (lower body) is also probable and will be paired up with Paul Martin. Orpik hasn’t played yet in this series, but he was by far the team’s most prolific player when it came to blocked shots during the regular season with 114 in 46 contests.
Pittsburgh has a 2-1 series lead after earning a 5-4 overtime victory on Sunday.
Update: The Penguins have confirmed that Neal and Orpik will return tonight.
