Penguins Game Day 31 - vs. Carolina Hurricanes

Carolina Hurricanes
7:30 PM, Mellon Arena, Pittsburgh, PA



Bing is back. He is pissed. May God have mercy on the Carolina Hurricanes tonight.

"I'm in," Crosby said.

Oh. Yea.

Kunitz and Gogo are also back on the ice practicing which is a very good sign. Kunitz has been sidelined for some time now as everyone originally thought that the injury was of the two week variety but it has been longer. Gogo came back for a game and then promptly sat back down. Almost back at 100%.

Although the Penguins have been beat up Mark Letestu did a phenomenal job against the Blackhawks last week. He was winning face offs and setting up play makers to make plays. His face off win with a little over a minute left in regulation directly led to the Penguins tying it up and getting a point. You love to see players from WBS come up with something to prove and perform well.

Probable lines for tonight:

Forwards

Talbot-Crosby-Guerin
Dupuis-Malkin-Fedotenko
Cooke-Staal-Kennedy
Rupp-Adams-Godard

Defense

Gonchar-Orpik
McKee-Letang
Eaton-Skoula

Netminder
Fluery

The Hurricanes are just a struggling program one year after going to the Eastern Conference Finals. The Canes are 6-17-5 and they are a dismal 0-10-3 on the road this year. But hey, they got Cam Ward:



and who can forget the Caaaaaaaaaam Waaaaaaaaard chant?



Lets Go Pens
