Blue Jackets 4, Penguins 3 (OT - SO - 1-0)

The Pens had to lose a game at some point. This was as good a game as any. They didn't give the points to an Eastern Conference foe, and they were able to come back from a three goal deficit to earn a point.

That's a great comeback, and a great point to earn. It keeps the team solidly in the 6th spot. They're just three points behind Philly and one behind Montreal.

It was an exciting game to watch, at least once the Pens got rolling in the third.

Kunitz just about ended it when he hit the post behind Mason when the score was 3-3.

Fleury made an amazing save on Peca with less than 20 seconds remaining in regulation.

Letang didn't fare well in his shootout attempt - he seems to struggle against goalies that catch with their right hands - his backhand move isn't as effective going the other way.

That's all I've got for this one. I'm still miserable after watching Pitt go down to those hillbillies from WVU...

Next up: A huge chance to earn points this weekend against the Sens and Bruins. The Sens are out of the playoffs and the Bruins have been struggling. Four points sure would be nice...
