John Curry will get start in goal tonight, not surprising.

Corey Potter and Steve Wagner returned to WBS this morning and will be ready to play tonight.

Alex Grant and David Marshall will be the healthy scratches tonight.

Update: Manitoba has come out tonight ready to play. They scored a late power play goal in the first period to take a 1-0 lead into the first intermission.The Pens took 3 minor penalties in the first and they need to stay out of the box and mount an offensive attack.

The Pens managed only five shots compared to Manitoba's 12 after 20 minutes. I have a feeling if the Pens can stay out of the box they can take control of the game in the 2nd frame.

John Curry who started was not in net to start the 2nd period. Brad Thiessen is now in net.

UPDATE(2): WBS Penguins make a goalie change to start the second frame and it sparks the team. The Pens still trail 1-0 but out shot the Moose 20-7 in the 2nd period and will have 1:08 of carry over power play time to start the third.

Manitoba's goaltender Eddie Lack has been great again tonight, has stopped all 25 shots he has faced.
