Penguins Look to Extend Lead Series to 2-0!

The Pens have had two days off after their 4-1 win over the Senators on Tuesday. They look to extend their series lead to 2-0 over the Senators. Vokoun will start in net once again for the Pens and I don't see him leaving the net until he messes up or if the Pens get to a 3-0 series lead. Adams and Tanger missed practice today, but it looks like it was just maintenance days for them. The Senators look like they are making a few lineup changes for tonight's game, but the Pens lineup is looking like the same. Hopefully the Pens come out with some fire and speed to take control of this game early on, making the Senators play the Pens game.

The Pens lineup is as follows:

Duper, Sid, Kuni
Iginla, Geno, Neal
Cooke, Sutter, TK
Morrow, Vitale, Adams

Orpik, Martin
Tanger, Niskanen
Murray, Engo

Vokoun in the cage!
