Not on the ice for the Penguins' optional skate: Crosby, Kessel, Letang and Kunitz.— Dave Molinari (@MolinariPG) May 13, 2016

Also keep your eyes out in the AHL Eastern Conference semi-final. The Hershey Bears (Capitals affiliate) could move on to the conference final tonight. They would be the team the Marlies will play if they advance.
