[UPDATE] The penguins webpage is reporting that Guerin was on the ice for this morning's skate and will, in fact, be in the lineup tonight against the Philadelphia Flyers -- GOOD NEWS (THANKS, Ed!)!!!
"It was a stinger type of thing," Guerin said. "It goes away. Its fine. I just wanted to get my skate off and get some ice on it."[UPDATE] According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Dan Bylsma said he is "preparing like (winger Bill Guerin) is playing" for the Penguins tonight against the Flyers at Philadelphia.
His right skate boot was hit by a puck late in the third period on Tuesday night and Guerin did not finish the game.
no word on whether or not he'll be in the lineup tonight since hearing on WTAE-tv that he wasn't at practice yesterday -- I honestly would probably consider that their usual "maintenance day," but I'll be on the lookout and post any updates on it when I find them!
