• Penguins' Kunitz sits out practice, uncertain vs. Flyers

    Summary of 18 articles · Updated Mar 17, 2014
    Pittsburgh Penguins forward Chris Kunitz did not practice Thursday and his status for a home-and-home series this weekend against the Philadelphia Flyers is uncertain. That time appears to be now for the Penguins after Kunitz and Neal were added to the injury list before the game Saturday. With two wins over the Penguins in 24 hours, the Flyers got the four points that are so crucial to them in their quest for a playoff spot - but they got more than that. PHILADELPHIA - If the Flyers continue to play as well as they did on Saturday, they'll have little trouble making the playoffs. What Josh Kuchinka and two friends walked through the doors for the Pittsburgh Penguins’ game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday, they unknowingly tested the limits and spirit of that policy: The “good taste test” wasn’t for a sign, but for the jerseys they wore to the game: 13, and the Flyers staggered into Consol Energy Center with a 6-10-1 record, which probably didn't reflect just how badly their season was going. They had started 1-7 the only victory coming in Game No. 4, after Craig Berube had replaced Peter Laviolette as coach and they had far more problems than points as the sixth week of the regular season was winding down. To try to dine out on the story of this weekend for very long could be fatal for them - the upcoming schedule remains brutal, starting tomorrow night against the Chicago Blackhawks - but there is no denying that this was about more than just the four points.
