Glass (2) from Megna, Orpik
Kunitz (5) from Crosby, Orpik
Megna (1) from Crosby, Orpik
First Goal For (Glass)
Sidney Crosby wins a faceoff just outside of Carolina’s zone directly back to Brooks Orpik. Orpik throws the puck into the zone off the far boards into an open area. Jayson Megna, who had lined up next to Orpik for the faceoff, sprints into the offensive zone as soon as the puck enters the zone. Megna wins the race to the puck and puts a shot on Justin Peters that creates a rebound. With both defensemen paying attention to Megna’s shot, Tanner Glass skates into the slot and fires the rebound immediately past Peters.
Players contributing to the first goal for: Crosby (21), Orpik (3), Megna (1), Glass (4)
First Goal Against (Gerbe)
Brandon Sutter is in the penalty box for tripping and Craig Adams is in the box for slashing. Ryan Murphy brings the puck into the Penguins zone as the Penguins back ...

AROUND THE WEB

They played much of the game without right winger Chuck Kobasew, who adjourned to the locker room after absorbing a hard...
Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Rob Scuderi is out indefinitely with a broken ankle that will require surgery. Scuderi, who signed a four-year, $13.5 million contract to return to Pittsburgh, was injured when he got hit by Maple Leafs forward David Clarkson on Saturday. Scuderi, who played four seasons with the Kings, had played in 276 consecutive games before breaking his ankle...
Tonight the Bruins will play the team they beat last year in the Eastern Conference Finals the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Bruins didn't just beat the Penguins, they shut them down, and swept them in four games.The Bruins took advantage of the basket case known as Marc-Andre Fluery during the series and then capitalized on a mediocre Vokoun for the rest of the series. The Bruins...
from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,
Boston humbled the mighty Pens last spring, and Zdeno Chara pushed Sidney Crosby around the ice like a bully kicking sand on the 98-pound weakling. Key offensive players like Crosby, Jarome Iginla, Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin were all bottled up by the Bruins defense, and Pittsburgh had no answer to Boston’s physicality once the puck dropped for...
Waaaaaaaaaaah. Waaaaaah. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. Chara. CHARA. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Wah. Wah. Wah. Torey Krug! MEAN. Waaaaaaaaaaaaah.
(EDITOR'S NOTE: It is HILARIOUS to see Jon bash Crosby. Jon has been giving Crosby reach arounds without question for years)
Crap. Sorry everyone. Sidney Crosby hijacked the recap for a second there...
from Cam Cole of the Vancouver Sun,
... And yet, there is always something with The Great 8, some little piece of total reverence that is withheld when a coach or a teammate or an opponent speaks of him, as if unconditional praise would be not entirely honest because ... why?
Because he scores a lot on the power play, and 5-on-5 he's not as dominant? Or because of that...

Let’s get right into it!
If you’re a regular reader of the site, then you have likely seen my goal assessments in the postgame thoughts at some point. For those who don’t regularly check out the postgame thoughts, here’s a brief summary. After every game, I go through each goal (for and against) and determine who contributed...
Somewhere deep down in the bowels of CEC, Mario Lemieux is pacing back and forth with the thought of the Eastern Conference Finals haunting him. Somewhere in some Pittsburgh high rise, Sidney Crosby wakes up screaming with nightmares of Tuukka Rask stopping pucks. Somewhere else, in Russia, Evgeni Malkin wears a cod piece and goes fishing.
I actually don't know if...
8 a.m.: The Bruins were thought by many to be nothing more than a speed bump on the road to the Stanley Cup Final for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Four games later, the B’s proved to be an immovable road block.
Boston swept away the Penguins in the Eastern Conference Finals with a dominant effort, and Pittsburgh’s season came to a halt. The two teams will meet Wednesday for the first...

Last Game for the Pens: Monday, a 3-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. It’s not going to make the next 10 Best Games set, but the Penguins snapped their three game losing streak. Tanner Glass opened up the scoring for the Penguins at 8:25 into the first period. Nathan Gerbe would tie the game on a power play goal before the first intermission...
