Penguins Game Day 77 - vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Tampa Bay Lightning

7:30 PM, Mellon Arena, Pittsburgh, PA


The Penguins are coming down the stretch run of their season and it continues with the Tampa Bay Lighting as they visit the Igloo for the final time.

This should be a pretty good game and there is going to be some great talent on the ice, and not just for the Penguins. Steven Stamkos plays for the Lightning and if you haven't been noticing him on the ice then you haven't been watching hockey. What a player.

Gonch and Geno will miss tonight for like the 100th straight game. This is what the Penguins lineup will most likely look like:

Forwards
Ponikarovsky-Crosby-Dupuis
Kunitz-Staal-Guerin
Cooke-Kennedy-Fedotenko
Rupp-Talbot-Adams

Defense
McKee-Eaton
Orpik-Letang
Leopold-Goligoski

Netminder
Fleury


The Penguins and Lightning will meet for the fourth and final time this season and the last time the Lightning will visit the Mellon.

The two teams played about two weeks ago and the Penguins rallied from a 1-0 second period deficit for the 2-1 win:



The Lightning took game two of the series 3-1 on January 2:



October 17, the Penguins won 4-1:

Do it.
