Lightning Vs. Penguins: Game 7 To Determine Whether Pens' Season Will Continue

The Pittsburgh Penguins, having blown two chances to eliminate the Tampa Bay Lightning from the NHL Playoffs, will get one final shot to do so in Game 7 of the two teams' first-round series Wednesday night at 8:00 PM at Consol Energy Center. 

The Penguins can't be happy to be in this situation, but they have home-ice advantage - not that the home teams have done especially well in this series - and far more playoff experience than the Lightning. 

Here are some links for the game:

Here's the Penguins' game preview. The Post-Gazette's preview notes that the Penguins need Marc-Andre Fleury to outplay Lightning goalie Dwayne Roloson, and that they need to get more from their top scorers.
