Gonchar game-time decision for tonight’s Game Seven

For the second day in a row, Penguins’ defenseman Sergei Gonchar practiced with the team and is considered a game-time decision.  Gonchar skated with Brooks Orpik and took his place on the No. 1 powerplay unit.

Gut feeling:  He’s playing.  I would also expect HCDB to dress 7 defensemen just in case he’s can’t go 100%.  At a bare minimum, he should be out there for powerplays.

Six hours to go.
