Did That Just Happen-Pens Win

1st Period:

18:30 The Pens come out flying, almost like they had 2 months to prepare for this game or something,
Satan steals the puck in the Neutral zone and brings it the other way, dishes to Talbot, Talbot shoots Satan deflects just wide of the net.

Crosby gathers the puck and puts it just wide on the backhand, this line so far is on acid or something.

Edmonton takes it back the other way, some douche bag is wide open in front of mafer, big save.

Garon makes another big save on Crosby from a rebound chance, how does that puck not go in the net....unreal.

Dupuis gets the puck in the slot, he shoots, he fans. who would have thought.

14:12 Godard vs. Macintire, it was almost a fight, Godard puts the beat down, Macintire has to go to locker room to clean up some blood.

13:54 the first penalty of the game is called on Darryl Sydor for holding, the Oilers head to the power play. your goaltender has to be your best penalty killer and Fleury was just that, making 3 solid saves. Souray has a bomb from the point.

10:46 The first goal of the game belongs to the penguins, Miro Satan buries a rebound from Crosby, the stick between his legs to make that shot, if you have ever played hockey, you have tried that shot.

7:50 Zigo and Tyler Kennedy almost make history, a few nice passes before the shot gets blocked in front.

7:13 Malkin steals at the blue line, takes it the other way, makes a nice move to get to the back hand only to have the shot blocked again in front.

5:53 Letang gets caught laying the lumber, 2 minutes for slashing Penner

4:02 Crosby steals the puck, goes down the wing shoots low far side, rebound kicks out to Talbot..shorty. 2-0 Pens

3:00 Malkin makes a few Oilers defensemen look like little girls, Garon makes the save.

2:12 Macintire destroys Letang, Letang will learn not to admire his passes as much.
Macintire must have learned his lesson, he makes souray get in between him a Godard.

somehow Godard is in the Penalty box, i didn't see him do anything wrong.

The infamous Robbie Brown appears on the screen, brings back some memories.

12:55 Delayed Penalty, Malkin with a bomb from the point, Satan deflects it in for his 2nd goal of the game. 3-0 Pens
There were 2 penalties being called, the Satan goal cancels out one, so the pens go on the power play for the 1st time of the game.

16:35 Hemske scores for the Oilers. Fleury maybe should have had that one. 5-3 Pens
Matt Cooke is hitting everything, Trying to get the Momentum back on the Penguins side.

14:54 Cooke and Peckan throw down, Cooke got the worst of that one for sure.
Pecken ends up with a 5 minute major, Pens go on another power play.

a scrum in front of the net, 2 Oilers go to the box, and one Penguin. 5 on 3 for the Pens.
Talbot puts one off the pipe, Crosby Puts one of the Pipe, its just not gonna happen for Crosby tonight.

11:01 End of the 5 on 3 Corky from Life Goes On comes in on a breakaway..Goal 5-4 Pens.

2:43 The Pens go on another power play. as usual the Oilers kill it.

:45 the Oilers Pull their Goalie, put some pressure on. not really a good shot until the shot of the faceoff with 1.2 second left.
