According to Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Scuderi is scheduled for surgery later this week and the Pens will go with a seven-man defensive rotation in his absence. Letang, who was paired with Scuderi, will now play with Matt Niskanen.
It’s been a week of piling on the Pens, as Pittsburgh has lost three of its last four games after a strong start to the season.
Luckily for Bylsma’s bunch, the Metropolitan Division hasn’t gained much ground, as Pittsburgh is still five points clear of its next closest divisional opponents with an 8-4-0 record.
