The Pittsburgh Penguins have announced that they will be without forward Brenden Morrow in Game 4 against the Ottawa Senators tonight.

Morrow’s absence is likely due to an undisclosed injury.

Meanwhile Beau Bennett and Jussi Jokinen have both been inserted into the lineup. They are projected to join Craig Adams on the fourth line.

“Jussi is a guy who’s been out of our lineup and you’re sitting on a guy who can make plays, score big goals, he’s a faceoff guy,” Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said prior to the game. “He’s also a guy who would see time on our second power-play unit, as well.”

Morrow has a goal and three points in nine playoff games, including the game-winner on Friday. Jokinen and Bennett have only participated in four and three contests respectively in Pittsburgh’s postseason run.
