Pens Looking for Some Revenge! 4/9/13

Tonight the Pens are in Carolina to face the Hurricanes. The last time these two teams met, the Canes came out on top. Well things have changed since that game. The Canes were in the middle of a streak where they ended up winning six of seven games, but now they look to snap franchise tying losing streak of seven straight games at home tonight. Jokinen is now a Penguin and will face his former team for the first time. Hopefully he gets a goal against his former team tonight. On the injury front: Neal, Sid, and Martin are out of the lineup for awhile, nothing new on their injuries. Tanger practiced and traveled with the team, but will not suit up tonight. Also Despres is out of the lineup as a healthy scratch. Lets see if the Pens can exact some revenge on the Canes tonight!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

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

Orpik, Eaton
Niskanen, Murry
Bortuzzo, Engo

Flower will be between the pipes!
