Penguins left winger Gary Roberts is questionable for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final against Philadelphia tonight because of illness, and Flyers defenseman Braydon Coburn has been ruled out because of an eye injury.

Roberts did not participate in the game-day skate at the Wachovia Center this morning. Adam Hall is Roberts' likely replacement.

Coburn's left eye is still swollen shut. He was hit in the face by the puck early in Game 2. It opened a cut that runs above the eye, down and across the bridge of his nose, requiring dozens of stitches to close and causing extensive bruising.

Ryan Parent will take his place in the lineup.

The Flyers, down 2-0, in the best-of-seven series, already are without top defenseman Kimmo Timonen, who has a blood clot in an ankle.
