Canucks found in Pittsburgh

By: MF,

Good afternoon! The Pittsburgh Penguins are taking on the Vancouver Canucks today at Consol Energy Center. The Penguins are coming off a huge win against the Philadelphia Flyers! They looked really good in that game and seem to finding their identity as a whole. Now they need to continue that for a long stretch! Since it's a weekend afternoon game, I have decided to just give you the play by play.

Now sit back and enjoy some Penguins hockey! It's a great day for hockey! Lets Go Pens!

The Pens lineup is as follows:

Sheary - Crosby - Hornqvist
Hagelin - Malkin - Kessel
Kuhnhackl - Fehr - Rust
Porter - Cullen - Bennett

Maatta - Letang
Dumoulin - Daley
Pouliot - Lovejoy

Fleury in the net!
