James Neal, Brooks Orpik return

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- An already loaded Pittsburgh Penguins' lineup got even tougher for the New York Islanders.

Penguins forward James Neal and defenseman Brooks Orpik both returned to the lineup Tuesday for Game 4 at Nassau Coliseum.

Neal injured an ankle in the opening game of the first-round series. Orpik has been sidelined for five games because of an undisclosed injury.

The Penguins have done just fine without both players, winning two of the first three games.

Neal, who didn't record a point in the one game he has played in these playoffs, took line rushes with Evgeni Malkin and Jarome Iginla during pregame warmups. Neal had 21 goals and 36 points in 40 regular-season games.

Orpik was a plus-17 during the regular season.
