The Pittsburgh Penguins have been dealing with a number of significant injuries in the postseason and unfortunately for the Penguins organization Wednesday night will be no different. 

According to a report from Sportsnet insider Chris Johnston, the Penguins will be down three very valuable members of their roster with Brandon Rust, Patric Hornqvist and Justin Schultz all out of the line up. 

While losing two quality forward like Rust and Hornqvist will without a doubt hurt the Penguins, it's the absence of Schultz that may have the biggest impact on the game as the Penguins defense is now truly being tested in the extreme. 

With superstar defenseman Kris Letang out for the entire postseason, the Penguins could ill -afford another hit on the defensive side of the ice, but that is what they will have to struggle with tonight.
