Pens notes

• Forward Ryan Scarfo and defenseman Chris Wideman both left the game and did not return. Scarfo suffered a lower-body injury, and Wideman is day to day with an illness.

• Defenseman Juuso Riikola appeared on the AHL transactions list Wednesday as a player reassigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, but neither Pittsburgh nor the Penguins made any announcement. It is believed to be a paper transaction.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton is back at Mohegan Sun Arena at 7:05 p.m. Friday against the Hartford Wolf Pack
