Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Paul Martin has been ruled out of Friday's Game 5 against the Philadelphia Flyers according to a post on the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette website. Martin has missed the last two games due to an undisclosed injury.
Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma has not yet announced if he will dress only seven defensive players for Friday's game. Bylsma has said that he is not a fan of dressing only seven, but he did just that in Pittsburgh's win in Game 4.
Game 5 is scheduled to begin at 7:30 tonight and is being nationally broadcast on NBC Sports Network. Root Sports will televise the game in the Pittsburgh area.
