PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Penguins head to Nashville with a 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup Final, but there’s uncertainty regarding Nick Bonino’s status for Game 3.

During the first period of Game 2, Bonino blocked a shot by Nashville defenseman P.K. Subban. Bonino needed help getting off the ice, but returned for the second period and finished the game.

KDKA’s Rich Walsh Reports from Nashville —

The Penguins returned to the ice on Friday for practice, but Bonino was not a participant.

Head coach Mike Sullivan said Bonino had suffered a lower-body injury and would be a game-time decision on Saturday. However, he also said the whole team would be a game-time decision.

Later on Friday afternoon, when the team arrived in Nashville, Bonino was on crutches and in a walking boot

If Bonino can’t play, it would seem likely that Carl Hagelin would make a return to the lineup after being a healthy scratch in each of the first two Stanley Cup Final games.
