Found March 09, 2013 on The Pensblog:
Another Saturday night special in Canada. The Pens blew a late lead, but Sidney Crosby capped maybe one his best games since his concussion, with the shootout winner. Not all good news for the Pens though. Evgeni Malkin took a monster hit in the third period and only came back for one shift. It appeared that his shoulder was hurt. But that is mere speculation. Full cap later, Isles in eight minutes.
