Since the game was last night, it's probably a little too late to post this but I was too tired to type it up after the game.
The Pens hosted Montreal last night at CES and things looked bleak until the third period when they out shot the Habs 14-7, scoring twice in regulation and then winning in an overtime shootout. Montreal still hasn't been able to find a way to right the sinking ship under their new coach and continues their slide to the bottom in the East. With that loss last night, they are now parked in 12th place in the Eastern Conference and have their work cut out for them heading down the stretch.
There were quite a few things that provoked my ire during that game about the way the Pens handled the first two periods and the way the refs handled some questionable calls. I won't even get into the little incident between Chris Kunitz and PK Slewban. Someone needs to tell him that dishing out slewfoot's (feet's...what's the plural form of that word anyway?) is not a recordable stat. If it were, he would win the award. I guess he was fined a couple hundred bucks for it this morning or something like that.
I will show this interesting vid capture of the game, where in a rare Eric Tangradi sighting, we see a ref almost get crushed.
So on to the nights 3 stars...
