Injured Morrow leaves practice

OTTAWA — Penguins coach Dan Bylsma is refusing to divulge any information pertaining to injuries during the postseason, but evidence suggests that something is physically impairing left wing Brenden Morrow.

The veteran left Tuesday's practice early at Scotiabank Place and later walked past a group of reporters with the team's head trainer, Chris Stewart, by his side.

Morrow is believed to be dealing with an upper-body injury, though it is believed he will attempt to play in Game 4 against the Senators on Wednesday.

Following a stretch late in the regular season that saw Morrow pile up six goals and 14 points in 15 games with the Penguins, expectations for him were high entering the postseason. However, Morrow has produced just one goal and three points in nine playoff games and is a minus-3. He has bounced between third and fourth line duty during most of the postseason.

Tornado relief sought

The Penguins will join forces with American Red Cross volunteers to raise money for tornado victims in Oklahoma. Fans will be given the opportunity to donate money at all Consol Energy Center gates between 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Friday before Game 5. Fans watching the game at the outdoor fan zone may also donate money.

Surface gets icy reviews

A number of Penguins complained about the quality of the ice during Game 3 at Scotiabank Place. In particular, they were dissatisfied with the puck's tendency to bounce. Some questioned whether the pucks were being stored at the proper temperature before games.

Vitale back at practice

Other than Morrow's early exit from practice, the Penguins are about as healthy as could be expected this time of year. Injured center Joe Vitale returned to practice, giving the Penguins full attendance.
