Last 2012-2013 Regular Season Game! Pens vs Hurricanes! 4/27/13

Well we are already here everyone, the last game of the regular season. Lucky us though, the Pens are headed to the playoffs! The Pens have had an amazing season, winning the Atlantic Division title and the Eastern Conference! We are still not sure who the Pens will face in the first round of the playoffs, but by tonight we should! The Pens host the Hurricanes in their last home game of the regular season. It will be the first time Jordan Staal will be back at Consol Energy Center since he was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes. On the injury front: Sid skated with the team Friday and skated this morning, he could be back for the 1st round series! Only time will tell and it will depend on what the doctors say in the upcoming days. Also Orpik remains day-to-day with a lower body injury. On the bright side both Martin and Neal will make their comebacks tonight! Great to have those guys ready to go for the playoffs! Unrelated to hockey, Flower and his wife Veronique welcomed their first child to the world yesterday, a baby girl by the name of Estelle! Congrats Flower on becoming a new daddy!

The Pens lineup is as follows

Kuni, Geno, Neal
Iginla, Jokinen, Duper
Morrow, Sutter, Cooke 
Glass, Adams, TK

Eaton, Tanger
Murray, Niskane
Despres, Martin

New daddy Flower will start between the pipes!
