Penguins Vs. Oilers: Pens Look To Finish Canadian Trip Undefeated

Defense is the key for the Penguins, as they take on the Edmonton Oilers Sunday night in Edmonton to end a three-game Canadian road trip.

The Penguins come into Sunday night's game against the Oilers 2-0-0 after wins over the Vancouver Canucks and the Calgary Flames. In their season-opener at Vancouver on Thursday, the Pens won 4-3 in a shootout with a game-winning goal by Evgeni Malkin, beating Vancouver's Roberto Luongo.

In the Pens' second game, they beat the Calgary Flames 5-3 in Calgary with a balanced attack that saw five different Penguins players find the back of the net. Tonight, the Pens look to move to 3-0-0 on the season against Edmonton and to spoil the Oilers' season opener as they conclude their Canadian trip. The Penguins will also be trying to keep pace with the undefeated Philadelphia Flyers at the top of the Atlantic Division.

The key to victory would seem to be defense. In the game against Vancouver, the Penguins led 3-1 before allowing two goals that sent them to the shootout. They also allowed two late goals against the Flames.

Brent Johnson will start in goal for the Penguins.
