Pens take on the Wild!

Tonight at 7:30pm, the Pens will take on the Minnesota Wild in the Xcel Energy Center! Johnson will be in the net, so that Flower can get some rest. Geno will not be playing in the game. The Pens have recalled defenseman Brian Strait from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the AHL today. I hope the Pens come out strong and get a good start. We need to get a win and end this three game losing streak. On another note, still no outcome from disciplinary hearing on Tanger regarding boarding penalty that he delievered to Jets player Burmistrov. I can't believe they are reviewing this, but not the hit on Cookie a few games back. That hit was to the head and Cookie was dazed for a moment. Burmistrov saw Tanger coming and turned, no time for Tanger to stop! Tanger actually slowed up right before the hit. I hope Tanger is not suspended, that would be a bad call (in my opinion). I don't like head shots and boarding hits, but a player doesn't turn his back, he puts himself in a bad position.
