Penguins 3, Oilers 2

So what happened?
Two bad periods of hockey followed by the third line bailing the team out and winning the game. Fleury was good and made some key stops. Geno was named the third star and showed some hop in his step.

Who scored?
Kennedy (9), Cooke (9), Dupuis (11)

Any surprises?
Does Dupuis really have 11 goals? The depth scoring on this team continues to impress and surprise (hence the inclusion).

Any change in the standings?
Closing the gap a bit, even though the Pens have played the most games in the NHL to this point.
Division: 2nd (four points behind New Jersey)
Conference: 4th (one point behind Washington)
League: 6th (one point behind Washington)

Who's next?
The Western Canada finale in Vancouver on Saturday night.

  • Quietly, this team has won three out of four on the road trip. A Saturday night win will make this trip a huge success.
  • The Oilers have some talent, but they really seem to expect to lose right now.
