Pens Welcome Bruins to Town! 3/12/13

The Pens are set to take on the Boston Bruins for the first time this season! Pens will get home ice advantage during this had fought game. Geno skated on his own today and is game time decision, but I don't we will be seeing him play tonight. Can't wait for Geno to return back to the lineup, healthy.

The Pens lineup is as follows:

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

Orpik, Martin
Eaton, Tanger
Niskanen, Engo

Flower will start between the pipes!
