Another unreal performance in the shootout.
All that was missing in the shootout on the Pens' side was Erik Christensen.
Same moves and everything.
This game was such an engima. First off, it probably got pretty solid ratings for Saturday night, considering there were more than a handful of people who didn't feel like driving on the roads in the midst of a southwest-Pennsylvania-er.
And then came the storylines.
These two teams are battling at the top of the Eastern Conference.
Actually that was the only storyline.
Not too much to say about the game itself other than the Pens won.
It was a solid game to watch, though.
They are now 13-3-1 since Bill Guerin's buzzer-beater.
A 6-2 loss in Ottawa.
A 3-2 loss on the Island.
A 3-2 loss at home to Carolina.
And the Blackhawk game.
Two of those teams are stains.
The Pens just don't bring their shit some nights. Big deal.
No rest for the weary.
The top team in the East comes to the Mellon on Monday.
A little over a week from now, the Pens repeat this schedule.
