Penguins Host Syracuse 1/7

Saturday, January 7, 2012
Bortuzzo is back!
After a 4-3 shootout win over the Rochester Americans last night, the Penguins are looking for another 60 minute effort tonight against the Syracuse Crunch.

A familiar face should be taking to the ice tonight for the Crunch. Luca Caputi, a former WBS forward who was traded to get Alexei Ponikarovski a few years back, has been traded again this year to the Anaheim organization and is in the Mohegan Sun Arena for tonight's game.

Should be Brad Thiessen vs. Iiro Tarrki in net tonight. I would expect the same lineup for WBS even though Pittsburgh re-assigned Robert Bortuzzo today. I know he's been skating in Pittsburgh this week but I don't think he'll be ready for game action tonight. I could be wrong, so I'll update the blog's Twitter feed during the warmups and get the full lineup for WBS.

Penguins need another win and hopefully get rolling again. Recap of the game on the blog shortly after the game.
