Penguins Game Day 55 - vs. Ottawa Senators

Ottawa Senators

7:00 PM, Mellon Arena, Pittsburgh, PA



The Penguins will return to the ice for their first game since the win at MSG on Monday. Ottawa has been straight rollin lately. They have won their last seven games and are 7-3-0 in their last ten events. Ottawa is only five points behind the Penguins with both having played 54 games.

This will be the third meeting between these two teams. The Penguins have won two of those contests with the last one being a huge night for Geno in an 8-2 route on December 23.



The Penguins took home the first game of the series 4-1 on October 12.



The Senators bounced back and got a 6-2 win on November 19.



The statistical breakdown of the two teams looks like this:



This is what the Pens lineup looks like:

Forwards

Dupuis-Crosby-Guerin
Johnson-Malkin-Fedotenko
Cooke-Staal-Adams
Rupp-Talbot-Conner

Defense

Orpik-Gonchar
McKee-Skoula
Eaton-Letang

Netminder

Fleury

GoGo is once again a scratch along with TK who will sit down tonight with an unspecified injury. Good news is that Dad will be back in the lineup and Kunitz will be back in "1-2 weeks" according to Disco. Godard, however, will be out of the lineup for the next 4-6 weeks with what is said to be a banged up groin. Not good.

Real big game today hopefully the Penguins can do the same thing they did as they did when the Senators were in town the last time before Christmas.

Do it.
