Left winger Gary Roberts hopes to play in the Penguins' regular-season finale Sunday in Philadelphia.
Roberts, out since Dec. 29 with a broken leg and high ankle sprain sustained when Buffalo's Tim Connolly fell on him, participated in an optional workout today and announced that he has targeted that game for his return.
"I'm just trying to get ready to play, whether it's one game -- maybe on Sunday, if things go well the next few days," he said. "I need a few more days of practice, but it definitely feels better. ??? Hopefully, with no setbacks (over) the next few days, maybe I'll play Sunday."
