So what happened?
The short version? Brent Johnson stood on his head for most of this game and kept the Oilers off of the score board. The power play was unable to get a key goal despite having a five minute major to work with at the end of regulation (and first 30 seconds of OT). The Oilers goalie (Devan Dubnyk) had something to do with that - he was great.
Getting to the power play 8 times.
The PK shut down the Oilers.
Brent Johnson and Devan Dubnyk were both really, really good.
Kris Letang is quickly turning into the best defensemen the Pens have seen in a long time. He keeps taking his game to higher levels.
Another third period lead that evaporated. It will be interesting to see if this trend continues once the Pens aren't playing teams in their home openers.
Other than Letang, the D was able to get involved in the offense with as much success as they had in Cal...
