Wow! Talk about a contrast in games. If you watched Wed. nights winning snoozefest against the Islanders, then tuned in tonight to catch the 5-4 over time win against the Chicago Blackhawks, you were pleasently surprised! Night and day!
The game was fast, with the Penguins crashing the net and owning the first period. They played hard. Fluery was sharp as well, until the third period when seemingly the Pens decided not to play the same way they did the first two periods.
New guy Chris Kuintz got his first goal as a Penguin early in the first, and was there hitting and getting right into everything thru the whole game. Looked impressive!
Malkin was seemingly absent, yet was in uniform. But showed himself in the OT period by slapping a shot right into the net to win it for the Pens.
Yay for 2 points, and not having to share them with another Eastern Conference team :P
