Penguins Gameday #17 (Lightning)

Oh Pens, please stop the bleeding. Pens are back in action tonight at home against the Lightning, looking to do just that, stop the bleeding from that infamous 7-4 loss on Wednesday. The Pens get a favorable break by the schedule maker, as the Bolts had to make a visit to the Verizon Center last night vs the Caps. Hope the Pens can take advantage of that extra day of rest as well as the home ice.

Opponents to Watch:

-Steven Stamkos- #1 in the league in goals. #1 in the league in points. He has been on a mission to change the NHL from a Crosby-Ovechkin league to a Crosby-Ovechkin-Stamkos league and he has just about reached that mark. The Pens did manage to keep him from scoring last game, but he still found a way to burn them with his passing.

-Martin St Louis- In case you don't remember, the Pens put much effort last game into stopping Stamkos and instead St Louis burned them for a pair of goals.

-Victor Hedman- Best defenseman on the Bolts, and he also has a few assists to his credit.


-Staal out. Comrie listed as day-to-day but it is unknown if he would play anyway.

-Vincent Lecavalier injured himself last night, so we will not be seeing him for Tampa. Simon Gagne is also out and Steve Downie's status is uncertain.


12:00 pm- Fleury will be in the net tonight.
