The Penguins Invade Edmonton!

By: MF, The Pens Hockey Show

The Penguins are in Edmonton tonight to take on the Oilers on their Western Canada road trip! The Penguins are coming off a shootout win on Monday night against the Vancouver Canucks. They had some time off to rest after the grueling game and will look to extend their winning luck against Western Conference teams. The Penguins are looking to keep this road trip going strong. Fun fact for tonight's game is that the Penguins Captain Sidney Crosby hasn't gotten a goal against the Oilers. That is right now in Edmonton or Pittsburgh! Sid will look to be changing that tonight and it should be an awesome game since a media reporter brought it to his attention today. Sid will be wanting to change that asap. Hopefully the Penguins can ready to play and get some early goals! Lets Go Pens!

The Pens lineup is as follows

Kuni, Sid, Gibbons
Jokinen, Geno, Neal
Pyatt, Sutter, Glass

Adams, Vitale, Engo

Orpik, Bortuzzo
Niskanen, Maatta
Scuderi, Tanger

Zatkoff in the cage!
