Fire extinguisher needed!

By: MF,

Tonight the Pittsburgh Penguins will round out their West Canada tour in Calgary! The Penguins are ready to battle the Flames and extend their winning streak to seven games. Nothing has really changed, since the game last night against the Edmonton Oilers. The only change is that Marc-Andre Fleury will be between the pipes. He has been performing on a consistent basis for the team and jumped started this winning streak along with aiding in it growing.

A quick injury update: Pascal Dupuis who went to the hospital is back with the team. All his test came back negative, but he will be done again in Pittsburgh. Glad for the good news and hope he is back in the lineup soon!

The Penguins have to come out with speed and get pucks on net. They have to keep their foot on the gas pedal and not let the Flames have any room. Lets Go Pens!

Fehr - Crosby - Hornqvist
Perron - Malkin - Kessel
Kunitz - Bonino - Bennett
Poltinkov - Cullen - Sprong

Cole - Letang
Dumoulin - Lovejoy
Mattaa - Scuderi

Fleury in the net!
