#AHL Game Six Preview: #WBSPens Look To Force Game Seven Tonight

Monday, May 20, 2013

The Penguins look to even the series tonight in Game Six of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island. The puck drops at 7:05 p.m. EDT. 

For all the latest in-game updates, follow the action live on Twitter @H_P_Hockey starting at 6:00 p.m. We are also on Facebook and Instagram!

UPDATE: Dylan Reese, who hasn't played since Game One of this series, took the warmup skate tonight and appears ready to return to the lineup. Bobby Farnham is out tonight. Here's the scenarios for the lineup:

If Reese returns, he could take Farnham's spot in the lineup and #WBSPens could play 11F/7D.

One of Peter Merth, Reid McNeill or Alex Grant could be scratched to make room for Reese on the blueline. Dominik Uher was the 12th forward so either he's in for the injured Farnham or the Penguins are playing seven defensemen tonight in Game Six.

Providence Bruins forward Graham Mink has been suspended two games by the AHL resulting from his actions during the third period of Game Five Saturday night. Jared Knight appears to replace Mink in the Bruins lineup. 

Projected lines after the jump.
