WASHINGTON (AP) - Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Sergei Gonchar
is sitting out Game 5 against the Washington Capitals.

Gonchar was hurt in a knee-to-knee collision with Washington's Alex Ovechkin in Friday night's Game 4. Ovechkin was assessed a penalty on the play but was not further punished by the league.

Coach Dan Bylsma said Saturday that Gonchar's injury was not as severe as initially thought, but the coach declined to say whether the veteran defenseman will play again in the postseason.

To take Gonchar's spot, the Penguins recalled rookie defenseman Alex Goligoski before Saturday's game.
