The Pittsburgh Penguins have activated defensemanJustin Schultz from injured reserve while sending Zach Trotman down to the minor leagues to make room. Schultz hasn’t played since Nov. 19, but is expected to be in the lineup Friday night against the Arizona Coyotes.

Even with all of the injuries the Penguins have dealt with this year, they still sit within striking distance of a divisional playoff spot. With a 15-9-4 record they are three points behind the Philadelphia Flyers for third place in the Metropolitan, and have the third best goal differential in the Eastern Conference.

Guentzel scores in OT, Penguins beat Flames 3-2

  Guentzel scores in OT, Penguins beat Flames 3-2 PITTSBURGH — Jake Guentzel beat David Rittich on a rush 4:04 into overtime to lift the Pittsburgh Penguins over the Calgary Flames 3-2 on Monday night. Jared McCann scored his ninth goal and Alex Galchenyuk got his first with the Penguins. Both had a goal and an assist, helping Pittsburgh get a point for the 11th time in 13 games — eight of those 13 have gone to overtime. Tristan Jarry stopped 32 shots and has allowed two goals or fewer in six of seven games.Dillon Dube scored his first of the season for Calgary and second NHL goal. Sean Monahan added his sixth on a power play as the Flames lost for the seventh time in eight games.

Schultz, 29, should certainly help them even more. The puck-moving defenseman had eight points in his first 21 games this season and was logging nearly 21 minutes a night, partly due to the temporary absence of Kris Letang. Even with both right-handed defensemen back in action, the team looks nothing like it was supposed to. Sidney Crosby, Brian Dumoulin, Patric Hornqvist and Nick Bjugstad remain out.
