CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, PA. — Shelly Anderson is at Penguins practice today providing updates.

12:25 p.m.: Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan confirmed Patric Hornqvist will miss Game 4 with an upper-body injury. PHN will have additional details as they become available.

Also, at Flyers practice, Sean Couturier collided with Radko Gudas and limped off the ice.

11:20 a.m.: With Hornqvist and Letang not on the ice, the lines and pairings look like this:









11:05 a.m.: Practice is beginning. Defenseman Kris Letang and winger Patric Hornqvist are the only players missing. We’ll have to wait for updates, but the guess is that they are taking maintenance days.

10:35 a.m. — Those white dots, if you can see them, are a strong indication that this is NOT playoff weather.
