Penguins Have Their Backs to the Wall...Time to Fight Back! Game 4

The Pens are on the edge of the abyss and the Bruins are trying to push them over tonight. The Pens played a much better game in Game 3, but it wasn't enough as the Bruins won in double overtime to take a 3-0 series lead. The Pens are going to have to step their game up to an inhuman like level to extend this series and keep themselves alive in the playoffs. The Pens are going to have to get some more from everyone, including their stars Sid and Geno. The defense is going to have to been flawless and Vokoun needs to keep playing well. He was the only thing keeping the Pens alive in Game 3. The offense is going to have to keep bodies and traffic in front of Rask. They need to disrupt his play in the crease anyway they can and this should lead to some dirty goals, at this point they need it. They need to get in the Bruins, especially Rask's faces and show them they will not go quietly, they are going to fight and take this to a game 7.

The Pens lineup is as follows:

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

Orpik, Engo
Martin, Tanger
Murray, Niskanen

Vokoun in the cage!
