The Penguins Travel to New Jersey!

By: MF, The Pens Hockey Show

The Penguins are taking on the New Jersey Devils tonight in Devils territory! The Penguins are coming off a win last night over the Nashville Predators, which snapped their three game losing streak. The Penguins produced more offensively in that game then they did during the three games they lost. Paul Martin was back in the lineup and showed why he was missed. The Penguins played a hard, fast, and tiring game against the Predators. Hopefully, they have enough energy to get their offense going against the Devils and keep the momentum going in their favor. On a lineup note, the Penguins have recalled Zach Sill from WBS and he is suited up for warm-ups! Lets Go Pens!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

Kuni, Sid, Duper
Jokinen, Geno, Neal
Bennett, Sutter, D'Agostini
Glass, Sill, Adams

Orpik, Martin
Maatta, Tanger
Niskanen, Engo

Flower in the cage!
