Here are a few notes from the game, just to put things in perspective (I think this is a pretty big accomplishment tonight, and will get things rolling in the right direction)
- This is the second-most shots the team has faced all year, which is saying a lot considering how porous their defense has been this year. I view that as more of a function of how the game was progressing than anything else, though.
- It's the most goals the Pens have scored in a game since October (in their 7-5 win over Atlanta).
- They stopped Gionta, and that wasn't due to a lack of effort on Gionta's part.
- It's only the second time this year that multiple players have scored more than one goal in a game.
It's a good start.
