Penguins Look to Rally Back in Game 2!

The Pens were shutout 3-0 on Saturday during the first game of the series and now trail 1-0 in the series. However, the Pens are ready to bounce back in this game and tie the series up before heading off to Boston. The Pens let their emotions get the better of them, including out star players, but they should tighten things up tonight. They need to stay calm, control the puck, make good passes, keep Boston out of their zone, and mostly importantly put pucks behind Rask!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

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

Orpik, Martin
Tanger, Niskanen
Murray, Engo

Vokoun in the cage!
