Time to Tie it Up!

By: MF, The Pens Hockey Show

The Penguins are back at Consol Energy Center to take on the Rangers in Game Two. The Penguins lost the first game in overtime to the Rangers and will have to bounce back tonight. The lineup looks like it will be the same tonight. On the injury front Brooks Orpik skated yesterday morning during an optional skate for the Penguins, but wasn't at the practice today. The Penguins have to use good puck management skills, limit the penalties, and crash the Rangers net to knock Henrik Lundqvist off his game. The Penguins have to come out ready to play and keep it going through the entire game. Time to tie this series up! Lets Go Pens!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

Kuni, Sid, Stempniak
Jokinen, Geno, Neal
Bennett, Sutter, Vitale
Gibbons, Goc Adams

Martin, Tanger
Maatta, Niskanen
Scuderi, Bortuzzo

Flower in the cage!
