Bruins 5, Penguins 4 (OT - SO - 2-1)

Didn't see this one. Pens allowed 44 shots - way too many. They also didn't manage to score in the third against the worst third period team in hockey. That's a double whammy.

Not much else I can say, except that it's nice the Pens managed a point out of the game, but bad that the Bruins earned two points. These games are going to come back to haunt them at the end of the season...

Curious stat - Malkin had less ice time at even strength than anyone but Ruutu, Moore and Thorburn. What's up with that? He was on the power play for 5 minutes, but he played a full 7 minutes less than Sid...

Next up: vs Toronto at the Igloo on Saturday night. Critical game - must have two points - no points allowed for Toronto.

Pens played ok. They stayed in it and Fleury really saved them in the 3rd and especially OT. If the Pens do end up making the playoffs all I can say is I'm glad they don't have shootouts!
