No Nick Bonino.

The PIttsburgh Penguins were without the center in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final versus the Nashville Predators on Saturday night. Speedy Carl Hagelin drew into the Pens' lineup in Bonino's place. It's Hagelin's first game of the series.

Bonino was hurt after blocking a shot in Game 2. He arrived in Nashville on crutches while sporting a walking boot, yet was labeled a game-time decision.

After an impressive postseason last year, Hagelin hasn't been able to find success this time around. He has one goal in 11 games.

Bonino scored two goals in 15:59 in Pittsburgh's Game 1 win over Nashville. He was held pointless in 16:06 in Game 2.

Carter Rowney moved to center with Bonino watching.
