Pens Welcome Bruins to Consol! 3/17/13

The Pens are set to host the Boston Bruins in another afternoon game! Both the Pens and Bruins played yesterday, so at least that won't be a disadvantage for the Pens. However the Pens will once again be without the services of Geno. The Pens look to extend their eight game winning streak to nine! Hopefully they can keep that momentum going today against the Bruins. It's a great day for hockey...Lets Go Pens!

The Pens lineup is as follows:


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

Orpik, Martin
Eaton, Tanger
Niskanen, Engo

Vokoun will start between the pipes.
