Was it fate that John Curry played against the Islanders and won?
We think so after watching this fight between him and Joey MacDonald when they were both in the AHL.
A re-match would have been sweet. Just saying...
There isn't much to say about the game but we will try.....
-Evgeni Malkin was dominant, duh. We bet that someone in the locker room told him that Ovechkin had the hat trick and competitive Malkin had to get one too.
-Sidney Crosby was determined not to lose.
Ka-ching Sidney Crosby.
-The Islanders are always tough to play against. Somehow they always get the lead but at least they're like the Penguins when they get the lead and blow it.
-Brooks Orpik deserved a star. He saved Henrik's life because she was on the ledge before he scored.
-An empty-net hat trick means just as much as a real one, right?
-Josh Bailey's a cutie. Too bad oldster Doug Weight had to score the first goal.
"It was crazy, but it was a fun game," Crosby said.
