The Penguins are in Canada!

By: MF, The Pens Hockey Show

The Penguins are in Montreal to take on the Canadiens. The Penguins are coming off a 4-3 victory of the New York Islanders last night. It was a hard fought battle for the Penguins and they came out with the win. Geno was playing at a top level and added scoring, finally. Not only did Geno get on the board, but Sid scored his 250th career goal and it was the game winner. The Penguins have gotten back on track, though at time during the game the Penguins were sloppy, but they pulled it together in the end. Hopefully, the Penguins keep the momentum going and have saved enough energy for tonight's game. Lets Go Pens!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

Kuni, Sid, Duper
Jokinen, Geno, Neal
Gibbons, Sutter, D'Agostini
Glass, Vitale, Adams

Orpik, Martin
Maatta, Tanger
Niskanen, Bortuzzo

Flower in the cage!
