Penguins Game Day 47 - @ Minnesota Wild
The Penguins are coming off a solid performance in Toronto on Saturday and will take on the Minnesota Wild tonight at the Xcel Energy Center. The Penguins were 4-1 winners on Saturday and Sarge returned with a bang and had two goals.
The Penguins have also called up Ben Lovejoy for the road trip. It was reported earlier that Jon Curry was called up, but that has since been retracted. Lovejoy will probably fill in for Orpik as he is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury. The Lovejoy call up most likely means Orpik will be out a few days. Lovejoy was called up earlier this year when 75% of the team was hurt and played pretty well. No word on if he will suit up or who he will pair with.
The game will be on Versus. God help us all.
The Penguins and Wild will play for the second, and last time, this season. The Wild came away from the Mellon Arena with a 2-1 win on October 31:
