RALEIGH, N.C. -- Penguins defenseman Mark Eaton is expected to miss two-to-four weeks with a sprained right knee.
Eaton was injured early in the first period of the Penguins' 4-3 shootout victory against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden last night.
His place in the lineup for their game against Carolina tonight at 7:08 at the RBC Center will be taken by Alain Nasreddine, who has played in just one of the past eight games.
Eaton has no goals, two assists and 12 penalty minutes in 28 games. He missed 35 games earlier this season because of a dislocated wrist.
