The same problem forced the 41-year-old Roberts to miss the final two games of Pittsburgh's first-round sweep of Ottawa. Roberts scored two goals in the first game of that series.
Roberts decided he couldn't play after going through the team's morning skate Friday.
``It's Gary's call,'' Penguins coach Michel Therrien said. ``We're disappointed that he's not able to play, but we have to respect that decision.''
Roberts played only once during the second half of the regular season after breaking a leg and spraining an ankle Dec. 29 against Buffalo.
