The Pens Get Ready for the Avalanche!

The Penguins are set to host the Colorado Avalanche at Consol Energy Center. This should be a great game, as the Penguins and Avalanche are both 7-1 this season. Not to mention they have the 2013 NHL Draft first overall pick, Nathan MacKinnon from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, just like our captain Sidney Crosby! The battle of the Nova Scotia boys! This looks to be a challenging game for the Penguins, but that makes it all the better. The Penguins need to stick to their game and keep working for the puck, they can't back off the peddle against this team.

The Pens lineup is as follows:

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

Orpik, Martin
Scuderi, Niskanen
Maatta, Bortuzzo

Flower in the cage!
