Cryers 2 vs Pens 3 OT

First period action, Pens and Cryers has some chances on the PP's with no results. Satan had a nice chance but failed to bury it, My man Max had a clear cut breakaway and got nothing but a weak 5 hole shot. Flyers have hit a goal post. Fluery is looking sharp. Nice fight between Goodard and Cote, very slight edge to Goody with both fighters throwing some nice punches. 2nd half of the period became tight checking. Cryers outshot the Pens 7-6..

2nd Period: Pens come out with better intensity and have dominated the first 5 mins and drawing a penalty. Pascal had what looked like 3 shots on one shift, what stone hands he has. PP has looked to be some organized, resulting in a fat big 0...Cooke takes a stupid penalty, maybe Therrien needs to send this team to shady lady ranch, they need to relax.Orpik takes cue from Cooke, another mindless penalty. OMG Fleury is outstanding on PK..Malkin dings the poster..a GOAL by Orpik, you got to be kidding me...Its Christmas in October, I must add a nice screen by TYYYYYYler Kennedy. GOAL by Ziggy makes it 2-0, they dam is ready to burst. Jeff Cater scores late to make it 2-1..Goal deflects off Gills stick..Don't believe it 2 goals in the last min of second period.Goal by Simone Gagne 2-2 after 2. GAME NOTE: Orpik's goal was his 5th in 301 games.

3rd period: Crowd was just announces as the Pens 69th straight sellout. Pens had an early PP, good puck movement, resulting in nothing. Early 3rd period, looks like the game might open up, advantage Pens. Pens grab a penalty against Hartnell, 12 mins to go. Cryers on a PP with about 9 mins to go..Pens Kill it (0-5). Its time for sid to step it up, he has been invisble tonight for most part. Malkin backckecks Hossa style. Carter's speed draws a tripping penalty with 4 mins to go. MAF has played pretty good tonight, I hope he doesn't give up his bullsh*t goal. Its OT.

OT: 4-4 this should give the Pens the advan.  alot of action , stone hands wins it for the Pens. Pascal finally buries it...oh what a shot!!!  top shelf... 3-2 Pens win  Good night everyone!!!!

Nice OT win. Still no real production from top lines even strength. I was dogging Dupuis alot tonight. I was glad to eat my words.

Seems like something is just not clicking on the first 2 lines....

Great win though. MAF looked solid. Good to see Free Candy get on the score sheet.

Go Pens

yea Mark, you hit the nail on the head. Crosby and Staal look lost right now, I don't know what the answer is. First two lines will have the Mr. Yuk sewn to their unis soon.

Dupuis just doesn't have the hands around the net. The Ghost of Zack Parise must have entered his body, nice top shelf shot.

MAF has looked very good in the early goings. any win against the Cryers is a good win.
