BOSTON -- Penguins forward Gary Roberts did not practice today and is unlikely to play Thursday night against the Boston Bruins.

Roberts, 40, was injured Wednesday night during the Penguins' 4-3 win over the Washington Capitals when he was struck by a shot from teammate Sidney Crosby during the second period. The knee remained swollen today.

Ronald Petrovicky is expected to take Roberts' spot in the lineup against the Bruins.

Roberts was acquired from the Florida Panthers at the NHL trading deadline in late February.
