Rangers 3, Penguins 2 (OT)

So what happened?
Yeah, I'm a bit late putting this up. That's what happens when you rely on a cable company for Internet service. If you have the option, go with Fios (wish I could).

What happened with the game?
Olli Frickin Jokinen. Again. This time he won the game in OT for the Rangers.

Prior to that, the Pens came out roaring in the first period and had several golden chances. Lundqvist was able to hold them to just one goal, and the Pens were out played (badly) for the rest of the game. It's like they fell into a comfort zone and were never able to get out of it.

They allowed a ton of shots... again (39) and the game would not have gone to OT had it not been for good goaltending.

Who scored?
Crosby (40,41)

Any surprises?
Sid was dominated in the faceoff circle, winning just 7 out of 20.

Any change in the standings?
Through Sunday morning:
Division: 2nd (two points behind New Jersey)
Conference: 4th (two points behind New Jersey)
League: 9th (tied with Buffalo)

Who's next?
The finale before the Olympic break against Nashville on Sunday (later today).
