Wednesday, April 20, 2011
Keven Veilleux has been one of the best forwards on the team down the stretch.

The Penguins have a chance to tie up the series and regain home ice advantage with a win tonight. You probably won't see any lineup changes from Game 3's roster. Tim Wallace should play, Brad Thiessen and the defenseman will play. The only lineup change could be Joe Vitale back in the lineup. Vitale missed Game 3 for the birth of his first child. Keven Veilleux has scored two of the team's three goals and is really solidifying his spot in the top six role full time at the AHL level. The Penguins will need to be physical tonight and ware down Norfolk's forwards and defenseman with good defense and a relentless forecheck.



Norfolk is coming in really depleted up front and will likely play 10 forwards and eight defenseman. Blair Jones and Matias Ritola were called up to Tampa Bay, while Mike Angelidis. Chris Durno and Paul Szczechura have all missed time in this series and are questionable.  Dustin Tokarski will remain in net and expect the 10/8 roster with a vulnerable team in my opinion. The question will be whether or not the Penguins can take advantage of the situation tonight.
