Wave That Penguins Terrible Towel!

By: MF, The Pens Hockey Show

The Penguins are back at Consol for Game two against the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs! The Penguins were able to come out victorious on Wednesday and lead the series 1-0. However the Penguins had to dig themselves into a hole giving the Blue Jackets an early lead, but they battled back to get the 4-3 win. The Penguins have to come out ready to battle and put shots on net. They need to forecheck and keep the puck behind the Blue Jackets defense, which will wear them down and fast. The Penguins welcomed back Evgeni Malkin on Wednesday and he contributed right away with an assist on the Penguins first goal. It's time to take a 2-0 series lead and head to Columbus ready to sweep the Blue Jackets! Lets Go Pens!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

Kuni, Sid, Gibbons
Jokinen, Geno, Neal
Bennett, Sutter, Stempniak

Glass, Vitale, Adams

Orpik, Martin

Maatta, Niskanen
Scuderi, Tanger

Flower in the cage!
