Game 8-Pens Win

Is it possible that Pens were just toying with Leighton all night, Letting him feel good about himself before before burning him for 3 goals in the 3rd period.

The scoring started with Brooks Orpik handing the puck over to Sutter for a breakaway goal in the 1st period, and it would stay that way for the most of the game, but not without the pens getting chances on the Carolina brick wall.

Crosby and Malkin would have a few good chances that only goalies on shrooms could stop, even Jordan Staal had a few shots on goal, unable to solve the Carolina goaltender.

The refs weren't calling penalties so the power play was worthless. The Crosby/Malkin 2 on 1 was a blatant hooking call that didnt happen.

It wasn't until the 3rd period that the shrooms would start wearing off and the Carolina goalie came back down to earth. With the Pens on an unusal power play, Malkin fires a slapshot, that gets deflected by Crosby and finds the back of the net. That proved to just open the flood gates, not to long after that, one of the best playmakers in the league, Jordon Staal dishes off to Fedotenko for what would turn out to be the game winner. 2-1 Pens

The Pens still not satisfied, Mad Max would come in on a semi break away and beat leighton for the 3rd goal, with a nice deke to the 5-hole. Talbots 1st goal of the season, i'm glad he listens to me, i said he needed to get in the goal column.

With the game pretty much put away, the Pens play their system and shut down the Carolina Hurricanes for the rest of the game.

With Leighton pulled fleury stops the puck behind the net, if you watched last season you knew what was coming, M.A.fer fires the puck at the open net only to miss by a few feet, he gets one this season.
It wouldn't be long after that, Crosby to Malkin which usually means- goal......Game

What a game. these last 2 games have been great hockey.

Fedotenko gets his 1st goal as a Penguin in his best game so far.

Jordan Staal had a nice game, There is some chemistry building between him and Fedotenko.
Finally Talbot gets going with a goal, he should of had 2.

Fleury was his normal self, an elite goaltender that gave his team a chance to win, he held the pens within one until they could solve the Carolina stopper.

Did Satan play lastnight?

Next Game Saturday against the Rangers.
