The Pens Look to Bounce Back!

By: MF, The Pens Hockey Show

Hello everyone, I am back for tonight's game! I have been working at my internship with an NHL team and had to work home games and it happen to overlap with the Penguins games. I would like to say thank you to GF for taking over Twitter, but I am ready to get back to work. Lets start off with the Penguins practice. Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz had a new lineup during practice and it was Brain Gibbons. The Penguins are slowly getting back to a full healthy lineup and it's great to see. Tonight Geno will be playing in his 500th career NHL game! The Penguins had a horrible game against the Dallas Stars and will look to be bouncing back tonight against the Buffalo Sabres. Lets Go Pens!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

Kuni, Sid, Gibbons
Jokinen, Geno, Neal
Glass, Sutter, Megna
Pyatt, Adams, Engo

Orpik, Martin
Scuderi, Tanger
Maatta, Niskanen

Flower in the cage!
