The Penguins recalled forward Dustin Jeffrey from his conditioning assignment with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Tuesday, but that does not mean he will become a regular in the lineup. He is still dealing with the effects of April surgery on his right knee.
Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has been ruled out of the game tonight at Tampa Bay. Beyond that? "Any speculation further away is not going to happen at this time," coach Dan Bylsma said Wednesday.
