Oh yeah… James Neal has a concussion

This came out hours ago, but we missed it, probably due to all of the time we spent screaming in terror.

Head coach Dan Bylsma announced that forward James Neal is out indefinitely with a concussion following Friday’s practice at Southpointe.

Also, Chris Kunitz is "uncertain" for tomorrow.

Forward Chris Kunitz (leg) practiced Friday after not doing so Thursday. His status for the weekend is not determined.

We don't need to tell you how terrible it would be for the Pens to have Neal and/or Kunitz out for an extended period of time. The good news is that the Penguins could win the Metro with a line-up of trained seals and a walrus, so as long as things get better for the playoffs, it should be fine.
