Pens Last Regular Season Meeting against the Panthers! 4/13/13

The Pens conclude their Florida trip tonight as they face the Panthers. The Pens beat Tampa on Thursday 6-3 and look to sweep Florida with a win tonight against the Panthers. Sid and Martin made the trip to support their team. Tanger had a great comeback game against the Lightning and is a big boost in the Pens lineup. Unfortunately, the Pens will lose another key member in their lineup as Geno will not play tonight due to an upper-body injury. He was hit by Labrie during the game against Tampa and looked to be in some discomfort. Hopefully it's nothing serious and they are just being cautious. Should be an interesting game and hopefully the Pens are in control of it!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

Kuni, Jokinen, Iggy
Morrow, Duper, Bennett

Cooke, Sutter, TK
Glass, Vitale, Adams

Orpik, Tanger
Niskanen, Murray
Despres, Eaton

Flower starts in the net!
