James Neal takes warm-up for Penguins (Updated)


Pittsburgh Penguins forward James Neal has taken to the ice for pre-game warm-ups, prior to tonight’s game against the St. Louis Blues, according to multiple reports.

Neal hasn’t played since Oct. 3, when he suffered an upper-body injury. In that game, against the New Jersey Devils, Neal played only three minutes and 49 seconds.

He was put on injured reserve in the middle of October.

Updated: James Neal will return to the lineup tonight, according to the Penguins’ official Twitter account. Beau Bennett also returns to the lineup.
