Hornqvist was scratched for Game 2 after leaving warmups early.

Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan did not have any update on either player's injury after the game. "I missed a lot of time a year ago, so not where I wanted to be, but I'm excited with the progress that we've made in the last week". He's been skating on his own and joined the team for practice on Wednesday. "They're probably not probable". Rust did not return to action in the game.

And this is why Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford went out and got guys like Streit and Ron Hainsey at the trade deadline. Rust was not on the ice again nearing the end of the first period.

But, if they limited their turnovers, they could survive stretches of good shooting, as long as it did not last the whole game. The good news is that the Celtics have more talent that was not seen in that terrible first half.

For the Senators, forward Viktor Stalberg will be a game-time decision Wednesday after missing the first two games of the series with an undisclosed injury. "I mean, you can kind of feel bad for yourselves and be like, oh, Tanger's out, Daley's out, now possibly Schultz", said defenseman Brian Dumoulin on Tuesday. "He's played a lot of games, especially in the playoffs here when the stakes are higher".

Daley has missed the last four games with a lower body injury and could return to a familiar spot alongside Olli Maatta.

Streit hasn't played in the postseason this year but has 784 career National Hockey League regular-season games under his belt, experience captain Sidney Crosby said would be key if he joins the lineup.
