A Thriller: Pittsburgh

Penguins-4 OT/SO

Just got back from the game. Box seats this time, 2nd game this season. Got to see Ovechkin the first time and now Sidney Crosby. Both wins in extra time. Anyways, what a great game from a fans perspective. Great end to end action.

From what I saw, the Bruins did not seem to be skating much and lacked puck control. They did a lot of dump and run. Phil Kessel played a spectacular game. Some big hitting went on from Chara and co. and Ryan Malone seemed to be pissed off. Great goals by Savard, Sturm, Murray and Stuart. Shean Donovan or Jeff Hoggan, I couldn't tell, should have had a goal that was ruled a no go. Should have been reviewed.

Hannu sucked...for most of regulation. On the 4th goal, he lifted his foot for no reason and on Malkin's two goals, should have stopped them, came to far out. He seemed to be playing a little to far out and to the right of his net. Also he had a delay of game penalty. In the shootout Hannu was brilliant and won the game for the Bruins.

OT was insane, I don't know how fast my heart was beating, should have been able to clean things up, but Marc-Andre Fleury was outstanding. Overall good game, good comeback, no giving up, and Kessel with the game winner in the shootout.

3 Stars:
1. Marc Savard (1g, 2a)
2. Evgeni Malkin (2g)
3. Phil Kessel (GWG, 1a)
HONORABLE MENTIONS: Glen Murray, Marc-Andre Fleury, Zdeno Chara, Jordan Staal


1. Glen Murray (22) from Savard (43) and Axlesson (11)
2. Marco Sturm (12) from Bergeron (32) and Savard (44)
3. Brad Stuart (7) from Alberts (8) and Donovan (8)
4. Marc Savard (18) from Murray (15) and Kessel (5)

1. Ryan Malone (6) from Crosby (46) and Recchi (27)
2. Evgeni Malkin (23) from Staal (7) and Scuderi (7)
3. Evgeni Malkin (24) from Whitney (22)
4. Jordan Staal (14) from Oullet (16) and Christensen (6)

Toivonen was at fault for 2 goals. The positive is that he step up when the team needed the most: in the 5 on 3 and in OT/SO. That's 2 points and we will take it.

I think you should look at Thomas record in January: GAA: 4.39 and sav% of .874... Both of them are not delivering. HT need to play more in order to see if he can do it or not. He's 22 and goaltender like defenseman take time. This team need a #1 in a hurry.
