Pens are in Florida!

The Penguins have traveled to Florida to take on the Panthers! Jeff Zakoff will make his NHL debut tonight in the net and the Penguins will look to go add another win, making them 4-0 to start the season. The Penguins are coming off a great game against the Carolina Hurricanes, in which Jokinen scored a hat trick. The Penguins have showed a great offensive start to their games and been able to collapse around the net, protecting the netminder. In this game that will be key with a inexperience (NHL games) goalie, but the Penguins have a strong defensive and one of the most lethal offenses in the league. The Penguins should be able to handle the Panthers, who played last night against the Lightning resulting in a 7-2 loss to the Bolts. Time for the Penguins to get to work!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

Kuni, Sid, Duper
Jokinen, Geno, Bennett
Jeffrey, Sutter, Kobasew
Glass, Vitale, Adams

Orpik, Martin
Niskanen, Scuderi
Matta, Bortuzzo

NHL newbie Zatkoff in the cage!
