Here are your Pens Points for this Wednesday morning...
The Pittsburgh Penguins welcomed the Vancouver Canucks to town Tuesday night for a wild affair. The Penguins went down into a 3-0 hole early on, Casey DeSmith was yanked, and the Penguins tied the game up, and that was all in the first 20 minutes. Pittsburgh would use that momentum to carry the team to a 5-4 win. [Recap]
