Morrow in Penguins lineup, scores opening goal

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Brenden Morrow must have some power of persuasion.

Morrow, who missed Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday with an undisclosed injury, and took line rushes with the extra forwards at the morning skate Friday, found his way back into the lineup for Game 5.

He scored the first goal of the game 6:25 into the first period.

Morrow said Friday morning he felt better and it would be a game-time decision whether he played.

He replaced forward Beau Bennett, who played in Game 4. To start the game, Morrow was on Pittsburgh's fourth line with Jussi Jokinen and Craig Adams.

Here is what the Penguins lineup looked like for Game 5:

Chris Kunitz -- Sidney Crosby -- Pascal Dupuis

Jarome Iginla -- Evgeni Malkin-- James Neal

Matt Cooke -- Brandon Sutter -- Tyler Kennedy

Brenden Morrow -- Jussi Jokinen-- Craig Adams

Brooks Orpik -- Paul Martin

Mark Eaton -- Kris Letang

Douglas Murray- Matt Niskanen

Tomas Vokoun

Marc-Andre Fleury

Quote of the Day

You could feel it. You could feel that they were going after each other and trying to win the game for their team.
