Pens are in Boston! 4/19/13

The Pens are in Boston to take on the Bruins. After yesterday's events with the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, the game was postponed to this afternoon. Lucky the police force was able to capture the second suspect that was on the loose. That is great news to hear! So now it's time for some hockey. This is a big game as the Bruins are looking to overtake the Montreal Canadiens for their division lead. The Pens will still be without the services of Sid, Neal, Geno, and Martin, but we have seen what they can do even without the top guys in the lineup. Lets continue that with this afternoon's game!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

Kuni, Jokinen, Iginla 
Morrow, Duper, Bennett
Cooke, Sutter, TK
Glass, Vitale, Adams

Orpik, Tanger
Murray, Niskanen
Eaton, Engo

Vokoun in the net!
