The Pittsburgh Penguins had a familiar face with them Monday at practice the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex. Bryan Rust, who has missed the past three games because of an unspecified injury, was on the ice, and wearing a regular, not no-contact, jersey.

Afterward, Rust confirmed he had no restrictions and said he is a possibility to play Tuesday when the Penguins travel to Nashville to face the Predators, owners of a five-game winning streak.

Coach Mike Sullivan said Rust likely will be a game-time decision for Tuesday.
