Pens are Back Home to take on the Islanders! 3/10/13

The Pens have traveled back home from their game in Toronto to take on the Islanders. It's a back-to-back game run for the Pens and they have lost an hour, since it was spring forward last night! Not only may the Pens be tried, but they will be without the services of Geno once again. Geno has a upper body injury after a hit he took in Toronto. Hopefully the Pens can overcome all this and keep their four game winning streak going!

The Pens starting lineup is as follows:

Kuni, Sid, Duper
Bennett, Jeffrey, Neal

Cooke, Sutter, TK
Glass, Vitale, Adams

Orpik, Martin
Eaton, Tanger
Despres, Niskanen

Vokoun in the net!
