Penguins 5, Canadiens 4 (SO)

So what happened?

Dustin Jeffrey, Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin happened.

Two of those happenings would not have been possible just a week or two ago, so it's nice the see the Pens getting important contributions from some of the guys recently returned from injury.  Richard Park is another player who has provided a few important goals.

Jeffrey had the best night of his young career with two goals and an assist.  He had several cracks at the hat trick, but wasn't able to pull it off.

Letang continued his strong play with a goal and an assist.

The Pens got themselves into trouble over the first two periods.  They looked a bit on the lackadaisical side, and they were down 3-1 during the second, and 4-2 at the end of the second period.

The third period, however, belonged to the Pens. They out shot the Habs 14-7 and tied the score to send the game to OT.

Geno scored in the shoot out and Flower made it stand up, allowing no goals in the shoot out.

Who scored?

Letang (4), Jeffrey (1, 2), Malkin (25)

What's their record now?
The Pens are 26-17-4.

Who's next?
Caps - Sunday afternoon.
