MONTREAL – Winger Beau Bennett won’t be in the Penguins’ lineup for their game against Montreal at the Bell Centre tonight, and it sounds as if he might not be there for a while.
Bennett sustained an unspecified injury during the Penguins’ 4-3 victory against the New York Islanders Friday night at Consol Energy Center.
Coach Dan Bylsma said this evening that Bennett, who did not accompany his teammates here, still was being evaluated today and does not have a firm prognosis yet, but that his absence figures to be better measured by something “longer than days, right now.”
Bennett, who has one goal and two assists in 12 games, missed 11 games with an unspecified injury earlier this season.
Matt D’Agostini will take his place in the lineup against the Canadiens.
