Injured Penguins centre Talbot could return to Penguins on Sunday

PITTSBURGH – Pittsburgh Penguins centre Maxime Talbot, sidelined with a broken right foot for three games, may play Sunday night in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against Philadelphia.

Talbot broke his foot while blocking a shot in Game 3 of the second-round series against the Rangers. He returned to practice Saturday, and coach Michel Therrien said he will be evaluated following Sunday’s pre-game skate.

Talbot has one goal and an assist for two points in seven playoff games and is a plus-1.
