Pittsburgh Penguins (2-2-0) @ Ottawa Senators (3-1-0) ROOT, Sportsnet East, TVA, 5:00 pm/et Scotiabank Place - Kanata, ON The Pens travel to the middle of nowhere Scotiabank Place in Kanata, Ontario to face off against the Ottawa Senators. Since the Penguins have lost *OMG* two games in a row, it'll be interesting to see if they can bounce back today. A game at 5pm is weird. Season Series: 0-0-0 Last meeting that counted: March 24, 2012. Penguins lost 8-4. What we said in our recap: If this game demonstrated anything, it is how imperative it is to have solid goaltending. Yes, the Pens defense was less than spectacular, but a good goalie can go a long way. Brad Thiessen was a mess in this game, and the Penguins defense wasn't much better. When those add up you have a nightmare. Sven City. Know Your Enemy: The 6th Sens What they're saying: Although Ottawa’s depth in general is enviable – just ask Eugene Melnyk – there’s a discernible difference between quantity versus quality. On the blue line, a number of players have graduated from Binghamton to join Erik Karlsson and Jared Cowen on the Senators’ blueline. We’re only two games into the start of the 2013 NHL season, but Patrick Wiercioch has not looked out of place and Mark Borowiecki is still waiting to make his first appearance of the season. There are other defencemen within the system too. Pittsburgh Penguins Lines: Kunitz - Crosby - Dupuis Kennedy - Malkin - Neal Cooke - Sutter - Glass Tangradi - Vitale - Adams Niskanen - Letang Orpik - Martin Engelland - Lovejoy Fleury Ottawa Senators Lines: Michalek - Spezza - Silfverberg Latendresse - Turris - Alfredsson Greening - Smith - Neil Regin - O'Brien - Condra Methot - Karlsson Borowiecki - Gonchar Phillips - Wiercioch Anderson Lines via Daily Faceoff. Do It. Go Pens.
