Roberts Out For Game #1

From Pierre LeBrun at the CP via Yahoo!,

Gary Roberts tried to bite his tongue on the eve of the Stanley Cup final, visibly upset after Pittsburgh Penguins head coach Michel Therrien told him he wouldn’t be in the lineup for the opening game Saturday night.”Obviously, I’m not happy about it but I’m going to let Mike talk about why I’m not playing,” Roberts said.

Therrien was not asked about Roberts during his news conference Friday but later told a reporter that the media would find out after the pre-game skate Saturday whether Roberts was in or not.

Roberts let the cat out of the bag.

“I’ve been told I’m not playing tomorrow night,” said Roberts. “But it’s not the time for me to bitch and complain.”
