Penguins 2, Panthers 1

This was a great win for the Pens.
  • They played a good road game.
  • They received some key goal tending from Jocelyn Thibault.
  • They found a way to beat a sharp goaltender in OT.
  • They also killed off a critical penalty as time was ticking down.
  • They didn't let their loss against the Isles turn into a losing streak.
All told, a great effort. There's really not much else to say. It was disappointing that they couldn't seal the deal with a power play in OT, but Army found a way to go upstairs on Belfour for the winner.

You know it's a relatively boring game when the highlights on include highlights from other overtime game-winning goals.

The Pens haven't swept a trip to Florida in nearly 10 years. They get a chance on Sunday.

Next up: at Tampa Bay on Sunday. Weird start time - 5:00.
