CRANBERRY — The bench door closed. The whistle blew. Pittsburgh Penguins practice began just before noon Friday at the UPMC Lemieux Complex. But there was no Jake Guentzel.

Guentzel, 28, the talented left-side companion to Sidney Crosby on the Penguins’ top line and genuine 40-goal threat, suffered a double whammy on Thursday night against the LA Kings.

Guentzel left the game and did not return.
