The Penguins Host the Canadiens!

By: MF, The Pens Hockey Show

The Penguins are starting a back-to-back game series. It will start tonight in Pittsburgh against the Montreal Canadiens and end in New York against the Islanders. After the Panthers game, the Penguins need to rebound and get back on track. The Panthers game was a huge wake up for the Penguins and hopefully they bounce back tonight against the Canadiens. On the injury front, Ebbett has returned to the Penguins practice and Thomas Vokoun skated for the first time today after his blot clot injury. (making it short and simple today.) The Penguins just need to come out with speed and put some on the board early. Lets Go Pens!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

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

Orpik, Martin
Scuderi, Tanger
Maatta, Niskanen

Flower in the cage!
