James Neal takes warm-up for Penguins (Updated)

Nov 9, 2013, 7:38 PM EDT

Pittsburgh Penguins forward James Neal has taken to the ice for pre-game warm-ups, prior to tonight’s game against the St. Louis Blues, according to multiple reports.

Neal hasn’t played since Oct. 3, when he suffered an upper-body injury. In that game, against the New Jersey Devils, Neal played only three minutes and 49 seconds.

He was put on injured reserve in the middle of October.

Updated: James Neal will return to the lineup tonight, according to the Penguins’ official Twitter account. Beau Bennett also returns to the lineup.

    Heard he’s going to be taking mostly 4th line minutes with a little powerplay time if the Blues allow. Hopefully Bennett and Neal coming back will be a locker room morale booster for the Pens! Lord knows they need it after the shellacking they took at MSG…..

      As I watch this game I stand corrected! He is indeed at home as Malkin’s right wing tonight!

        Doesn’t matter, though, when Letang forgets he is a defenseman not a forward. Which occurs way, way too frequently.
