Big-name injury updates, Penguins notes

The Flyers also have a couple of big names on the injury report with not-so-good news.

The 1927-28 NHL Pirates went 11 winless to start the season and still made the playoffs. Here’s the Wikipedia page, featuring goalkeeper Roy Worters and manager Odie Cleghorn those interested.
