Preseason Game 5 - Columbus Blue Jackets

The Pens take a short travel to Columbus for another preseason game against the Blue Jackets. Not too much to report about the game except they are going to run out a more "regular season" roster tonight with Sid and Geno both being in the game today. Gonch is not going to play in tonight's game nor is Brooks Orpik.

It is preseason. You don't need to see much from Sarge or Brooks.

Here is the Pens line-up:

FORWARDS
Chris Kunitz-Sidney Crosby-Bill Guerin
Ruslan Fedotenko-Evgeni Malkin-Tyler Kennedy
Matt Cooke-Jordan Staal-Chris Conner
Paull Bissonnette-Mike Rupp-Eric Godard
(Ryan Bayda)

DEFENSEMEN
Mark Eaton-Nate Guenin
Alex Goligoski-Deryk Engelland
Jay McKee-Kris Letang

GOALTENDERS
Marc-Andre Fleury, John Curry

Guenin and Engelland will be battling for some PT as the Pens seventh D-man so this is a pretty important game for both of them.

Here is what Columbus has coming against the Pens (with no lines announced):

FORWARDS
Michael Blunden, Jared Boll, Matt Calvert, Derick Brassard, Derek Dorsett, Nikita Filatov, Derek MacKenzie, Andrew Murray, Rick Nash, Samuel Pahlsson, Alexandre Picard, R.J. Umberger, Jakub Voracek.

DEFENSMEN

Grant Clitsome, Jan Hejda, David Liffiton, John Moore, Mathieu Roy, Kris Russell


GOALTENDERS

Mathieu Garon, Steve Mason


The game will be on the Penguins radio HD network so you will be able to listen to the game but from what I can understand there will be no video of the game.

Lets Go Pens
