After a game in which the Pittsburgh Penguins snapped a three-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes, the team received bad news. Defenseman Rob Scuderi, who left Saturday’s game in Toronto, has a broken ankle. Scuderi will have to undergo surgery to repair it, which could keep him out of the lineup for a while. The 34-year-old signed a four-year, $13.5 million deal with Pittsburgh on July 5th. His absence tonight snapped a streak in which he has played in 276 straight games.
