Penguins Visit Ottawa for Game 3!

The Pens are in Ottawa tonight for Game 3! The Senators look to get their first win of this series at home tonight as the Pens have a 2-0 series lead. ThePens have played two consistent games this series, which wasn't seen in the last series against the Islanders. The Pens last game played a full 60 minute game, which was a huge deal for the Pens. Vokoun has looked a bit shaky in the last two games, but he has made the necessary saves for the Pens and coming up with key saves during the games. The Senators will have a electric crowd tonight and to add to that Jason Spezza will return to the lineup for the first time since January after having back surgery. The Pens will have to come out with some speed and fire to start this game. The Pens have to shut down the Senators early to take the crowd out of this game. It will be an interesting game and hopefully the Pens will come out with the win.

The Pens lineup is as follows:

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

Orpik, Martin
Tanger, Niskanen
Murray, Eaton

Vokoun in the cage!
