The Penguins Host their First Western Team this Season!

The Penguins are back home from their Florida trip to host the Edmonton Oilers! The Penguins were dealt their first loss by the Panthers, but bounced back in Tampa as Sid came out with a hat trick. Let me tell you, the Tampa game was amazing and I will have pictures/video posted from that game later. The Penguins have placed James Neal on IR and Beau Bennett is out with a lower body injury. Zolnierczyk was called up from Wilkes-Barre Scranton. Now lets give the Oilers a Pittsburgh welcome! LETS GO PENS!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

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

Orpik, Martin
Scuderi, Niskanen
Maatta, Engo

Flower in the cage!
