Pens Host the Canadiens! 4/17/13

The Pens are set to take on the Montreal Canadiens. The Pens have had a nice rest as their last game was on Saturday night, so they should be ready to come out hopping tonight. On the injury front Sid, Neal, and Martin have been skating before the team practices with Mike Kadar the strength and conditioning coach. Geno is still out with of the lineup with an upper body injury. It should be an interesting game and if the Pens get the win they will have shutout the Canadiens for a win in this series.

The Pens lineup is as follows:

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

Orpik, Tanger
Murray, Niskanen
Despres, Eaton

Flower in the cage!
