Kunitz, Ruhwedel return to practice for well-rested Penguins

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Penguins forward Chris Kunitz returned to practice on Sunday, giving the defending Stanley Cup champions hope the veteran forward can contribute at some point during the team's postseason run.

Kunitz wore a non-contact jersey during the workout. The 37-year-old hasn't played since being diagnosed with a "longer term" lower-body injury following a victory over the New York Rangers on March 31. The Penguins have been off since eliminating Columbus from the playoffs in five games last Thursday.

Pittsburgh's second-round series begins this week and Kunitz's appearance is a promising sign the two-time Cup winner will be available sooner rather than later.
