Devils 3, Penguins 2 (OT)

The Pens game out firing against the Devils, who seemed to be a bit weary from having played yesterday. The only problem was that the Pens could only get two past Brodeur in the first period. After that, they couldn't do much of anything. However, in this case, it wasn't for lack of trying. The Pens weren't content to sit on a lead and play it safe - they kept attacking - they just weren't successful at it. The Devils outshot the Penguins 28 to 11 over the last two periods.

This loss, while it sucks, it nothing to be ashamed of. The Pens played a good game, and just couldn't get that third goal past Brodeur. They also just missed the empty net a few times at the end of the third.

Fleury played quite well - the goals he allowed weren't bad (even the goal in OT to Mighty Mouse). He's continuing to progress, in my opinion, and it well on his way to becoming a great #1 goaltender.

The Pens take to the road this week, with their next game being Wednesday night, with another chance to play the Devils.
