The Penguins Travel to Columbus!

By: MF, The Pens Hockey Show

The Penguins are coming off a 4-2 over the Blue Jackets last night at Consol, then turning around to travel to Columbus for a back-to-back game! The Penguins looked good and had some great chances on net, even chasing out Vezina trophy winner Bobrovsky. That didn't stop the Blue Jackets from coming strong and Flower was the star of the game. Without the Flower being on his game, the Blue Jackets would of won the game. The Penguins will have to step up their game and stick to it for the entire game! Lets Go Pens!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

Duper, Sid, Kuni
Jokinen, Geno, Megna
Glass, Sutter, Adams
Jeffrey, Vitale, Engo

Orpik, Martin
Niskanen, Tanger
Maatta, Bortuzzo

Zatkoff in the net!
