GAME 50 RECAP: Broken Down Fleury

Here’s how the game went in one pic: It felt like the Pens had no chance in Hell of winning this game.

By: @chetstead   After jumping out to an early lead, the Pens looked like they would cruise to victory against Ottawa. The Senators, though, had other plans. They overcame a slow start and made a game of it. That was when Sidney Crosby stepped up with three goals – a natural hat trick – to put the game out of reach. One thing’s for sure: games like this are a lot more fun...
