Red Wings @ Penguins 2/8/09

February 8, 2009

Penguins host the always-good Red Wings today. Last time the Pens played the Red Wings, Jordan Staal grabbed a hat trick in the third to send the game into overtime after the Pens were down 5-2.

We all know that since then the Pens have struggled but they’re riding a little two game win streak. A win today would give them some serious momentum and help get back into the playoff picture.

The Pens will be wearing the ugly ass blue uniforms.

Chris Minard and Philippe Boucher are scratched for the Penguins.
Johan Franzen, Tomas Holmstrom and Derek Meech are scratched for Detroit.

In a nice little sub-plot Ty Conklin will start in the net for Detroit and make everyone in Pittsburgh wish he hadn’t slipped away from the Pens this year.
