Penguins get Rodrigues back from COVID list, lose Carter to it

The Penguins got one player back from the COVID list but also lost one on Friday with Evan Rodrigues back, but Jeff Carter out again for the second time this season. It’s just the next in what will be several more unknown and unforeseen twists and turns for coach Mike Sullivan to continue to navigate. The bright side is Rodrigues is back, after the new adjustments to the NHL’s latest COVID protocol that allows for only five days of isolation for asymptomatic cases like Rodrigues.
