PENS WELCOME MONTREAL TO MELLON ARENA ON SUNDAY
The Pittsburgh Penguins return to action Sunday as they take on the Montreal Canadiens at 7:30 p.m. at Mellon Arena.
The Penguins hope to carry over momentum from Friday night’s thrilling 4-3 overtime triumph over the New York Islanders. Pittsburgh rallied to tie the game and super rookie Sidney Crosby won the game in the extra session when he rifled a puck into the net 3:28 into the extra session.
The contest marks the second of a three-game homestand for the Penguins, who welcome Florida to Mellon Arena on Wednesday as well. Pittsburgh is 4-5-1 in its last 10 games and Marc-Andre Fleury continues his strong play in goal for the Penguins.
Montreal is 4-5-1 in its last 10 games also. The two teams met on March 18 in Montreal and the Penguins grabbed a 5-4 victory. The Penguins rallied with two late goals to earn the triumph.
FSN Pittsburgh will televise the contest at 7:30 p.m., while 3WS (94.5 FM) will start its radio broadcast with a pregame show at 7 p.m. The broadcast may be found live through streaming audio on pittsburghpenguins.com as well.
