Pens Travel to take on the Maple Leafs!

The Pens are back in Toronto to take on the Maple Leafs! The Pens look to extend their six game winning streak to seven! What a ride the Pens have been on the past couple of games. There has been big wins and close wins, but a constant is the scoring power of the Pens. It has been crazy how the Pens have been able to put the puck in the net and we all hope for them to continue it. Geno will sit out for another game and hopefully we will see him play on Saturday!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

Kuni, Sid, Duper
Bennett, Jeffrey, Neal
Cooke, Sutter, TK
Glass, Vitale, Adams

Orpik, Martin
Despres, Tanger
Niskanen, Engo

Flower in the net!

7:39- Leafs ice the puck and the Pens get an offensive zone faceoff chance. Time whining down and the Pens still looking to put one on the board.

11:34- Pens are working so hard to get the puck to the Leafs net. Scrivens denying them every time.

13:50- Flower comes out to poke check the puck away from a Leafs break away chance. He doesn't get it, but his body still stops the puck. Amazing, weird save by the Flower.

14:12- Sid makes a pass from behind the net to Kuni in the slot, but he fans on the shot!

15:15- Leafs with a lot of time in the Pens zone and the Pens end up icing the puck. Pens have to call a timeout to rest their tried players.

1st Period
0:00- First period ends and we are scoreless. Not as action packed as many would expect, more of a feeling out for both teams.
