Penguins Look To Get Back On Track

Tuesday, November 15, 2011
WBS Penguins look to get back to their winning ways tonight at 7:05 p.m.
Following a third period letdown against Norfolk on Saturday, the Penguins get their chance for redemption tonight against the defending champion Binghamton Senators at the Mohegan Sun Arena.

Scott Munroe will get the start in net tonight, according to Penguins beat writer Jonathan Bombulie who spoke to Hynes after Monday's practice at the Coal Street.

Thiessen had started nine straight games and Munroe hadn't played in over a month, but it looks like it's win and you're in. We'll see if Munroe can get a hot streak of his own started tonight. His first WBS Penguins start was a shutout in a 1-0 shootout loss so he's definitely capable of picking up where Thiessen left off.

As for the rest of the lineup you should expect a similar lineup. Colin McDonald was given a maintenance day and Dustin Jeffrey had an off-ice workout which Hynes said was part of his conditioning stint in Wilkes-Barre. Dustin Jeffrey was recalled to Pittsburgh this morning. Geoff Walker was in a red no-contact jersey, and won't be ready. Boris Valabik is still practicing in a regular jersey but is also no ready for game action.

So my best stab at tonight's lineup:
Colin McDonald - Bryan Lerg - Jason Williams
Nick Petersen - Brian Gibbons - Niko Dimitrakos
Ryan Craig - Ben Street - Paul Thompson
Brandon DeFazio - Zach Sill - Steve MacIntyre

Robert Bortuzzo -Cody Wild
Carl Sneep - Simon Despres
Joey Mormina - Philip Samuelsson
