After beating the Bears last night, the Pens look to make it six straight victories to open up the season tonight against the Binghamton Senators (3-3).
John Curry should get the start tonight, after Brad Thiessen stopped 30 of 32 shots in last night's contest. Curry and Thiessen have started in alternating games so far this season. Curry hasn't allowed a goal in the second or third periods of his two starts this season but has gotten off to slow starts in the first period, allowing four goals in his first period action.
Look for the Pens to continue to roll all four lines with confidence. The lineup should pretty much remain the same. I don't think Brett Sterling will play tonight. He hasn't practiced at all this week and I'm not sure whether or not he took the morning skate today.
I'm expecting a big game tonight from the Pens second line of Keven Veilleux, Ryan Craig and Nick Johnson. Just have a good feeling about that group, as the had some good chances last night. Hopefully they can carry over that momentum into tonight's 7 p.m. faceoff at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.
I will be going to the game again tonight. I'm trying to go early to get some more pictures (hope you have enjoyed the ones I have posted so far) and should have a recap later tonight after the game.
Lets Go Pens!!! Both Pittsburgh and Wilkes-Barre!!!
