Penguins 4, Flyers 3 (OT - SO - 2-0)

This review is late... so I'll keep it brief.

Christensen scored two sick goals, both top shelf on that nasty wrist shot. You'd think that other teams would have this scouted by now, but even knowing it's coming, I'm not sure there's anything you could do. If he gets the puck in the slot area with an opening and the goalie is deep in the crease, all Erik has to do is pick his spot.

Roberts nabbed exactly the kind of goal that you'd think - he chipped in a rebound by going to the net. He's really filling the role that the team expected John Leclair to fill.

Fleury allowed a total soft one by Coburn, but his teammates bailed him out by tying the game. He then repaid them with some inspired play in the shoot out.

Great to get the win when the team clearly didn't have a complete game.

Next up: at Ottawa on Tuesday. Tough game.

Watching this game really showed how if the Pens take a lot of penalties they just can't play their game. It keeps their best players on the bench and does not let them get in any flow with the 4 lines. Chance to pull into a tie with Ottawa for 4th place in the east... GO PENS!
