Orpik out of Penguins lineup for Game 5

Apr 26, 2014, 6:51 PM EST

The Pittsburgh Penguins will be without defenseman Brooks Orpik for Game 5 of their first-round series against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday.

That is at least based on the lineups tweeted out prior to puck drop by the Penguins’ official Twitter account.

Orpik, who did not take warm-ups, based on multiple reports, had appeared in all four of the previous games in this series. In Game 4, he had 22:28 in ice time.

Robert Bortuzzo, 25, will make his Stanley Cup playoff debut for the Penguins on the blue line. Marcel Goc, who suffered a foot injury toward the end of the season, is also in the Penguins lineup.

        Grudge? For what? Orpik has never been an ‘advocate’ for fighting and we all know why.

        Yo Scooter…..you shouldn’t have to fight when you deliver clean hard legal checks.

        Sorry that when he puts your favorite player into the 3rd row your butt hurts….now grow up and get over it.
