After Shark Season Comes Bear Season!

By: MF, The Pens Hockey Show

The Penguins are ready to battle the Bruins in Boston! The Penguins will once again be without the services of Evgeni Malkin, since he didn't make the trip. Some good news is that Pascal Dupuis practiced with the team after missing yesterday's practice with a lower-body injury. The Penguins lineup will be a game time decision. The Penguins are coming off a dominating win against the San Jose Sharks even without Malkin in the lineup. Hopefully the Penguins can keep the momentum going and take it to the Bruins! Lets Go Pens!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

Kuni, Sid, Duper
Megna, Jokinen, Neal
Conner, Sutter, Vitale
Adams, Sill, Kobasew

Orpik, Engo
Maatta, Tanger
Despres, Niskanen

Flower in the cage!
