Curry to start in net, Lovejoy sent back to Baby Pens

John Curry will get another shot in net tonight against the team he faced in his NHL debut when he replaced Dany Sabourin midway through the second period on November 26th against the Islanders. Coach Therrien said Curry did well against the Islanders, stopping all 11 shots he faced, and now he'll get another chance at them.

"You know what to expect to a certain extent," said Curry of seeing the Islanders for a second time. "The half of the game that I played before, the (Penguins) played so well that I didn't see much action. I know this team is capable of bringing more but I feel comfortable."

"The team needs a win," Curry said. "Hopefully I can do my best to keep the team in the game and give them a chance to win.

"It's only my second start so I have to be ready and I have to be focused."

We're excited to see some more of Curry and we also know fans of Boston University Terriers hockey are too.

Ben Lovejoy has been re-assigned back to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pens. That's because Philippe Boucher, who hasn't played since November 28th, is back in the lineup tonight. That's at least a little good news on the injury front.

And for entertainment's sake, John Curry's first shaving cream pie to the face. Hopefully tonight is as happy. Let's go Pens!
