Penguins Look to Shut Down Senators in Game 4!

The Pens are still lead the series 2-1 after a 2-1 overtime loss to the Senators this pass Sunday! The Senators welcomed back Jason Spezza and they got a much needed boost to their game. The Pens did play a great 59 1/2 minute game, but fell apart in the last 30 seconds of the game and it gave the Senators life as Alfredsson scored to tie the game. Then the Senators were able to get the win in overtime. The Pens had a few powerplays that would of shut down any momentum for the Senators, but they didn't capitalized. The Senators got a huge boost from all the successful penalty killing they had done. Hopefully the Pens can bounce back and stop the Senators from gaining any momentum from their win. Time for the Pens to play a full, well rounded, 60 minute game today!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

Duper, Sid, Kuni
Iginla, Geno, Neal
Cooke, Sutter, TK
,Bennett, Jokinen, Adams

Orpik, Martin
Tanger, Niskanen
Murray, Eaton

Vokoun in the cage!
