Penguins 4 - Islanders 3 SO
We don't think we've screamed harder for a goal in our house in a long time than we did for Tyler Kennedy's second of the night.
The ice was shit and Paul Steigerwald actually said "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up" about the amount of players falling.
Things we noticed from the game while screaming from our couch.....
-Malkin taking a puck off his hand scared us. We were reminded of Bob Scuderi's finger from the last time the Pens were on The Island. Ew.
-The Islanders third jerseys are actually pretty fantastic.
-We believe that Malkin was the only player who did not suffer from a self-induced fall.
-Dany Sabourin no longer makes us cringe when he is in goal. And that diving poke-check whatever save on Bill Guerin in the dying minutes of the game cemented him in our good graces.
-Jordan Staal and Tyler Kennedy were everywhere. At least it felt like it.
-Speaking of the devil, JStaal's goal was pretty awesome. The puck was bouncing all over the place and he slipped it under MacDonald's pads. We loved that play.
-Mike Zigomanis also had a great game. He was winning face-offs from the bench.
-The third period for the Penguins was insane. It would have been a sin if they didn't score.
-Dany Sabourin wiped out while playing a puck behind the net. We choked on the popcorn we were eating when he went flying down.
"Yes Mr. Sabourin, we will be there momentarily to help you to your feet."
-We never want to see Alex Goligoski and Mark Eaton paired together. They just don't seem to work well together and we can't figure out why.
-Henrik called Sykora scoring in the shootout. And we were yelling when he did.
-Sabourin's 'Now-you-see-it-now-you-don't' save on Trent Hunter was a little crazy.
-Kennedy got shaving-creamed in the post-game interview with Dan Potash or as we like to call him, DJ Po. Consensus among the Hockey Junkies is that it was Eric Godard.
-Like we've said before, we love this team's camaraderie.
