Check out this cool little highlight from last night’s action. While being interviewed, Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma predicts that newly acquired forward Jussi Jokinen will break the 0-0 tie. Lo and behold, Jokinen proves Bylsma’s words to be prophetic as he takes a feed from Chris Kunitz and shoots it right past Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist to give Pittsburgh a 1-0 lead. Pittsburgh would go on to win 2-1 in a shootout. The only player to score in the shootout? Jussi Jokinen.
