ESPN Game Recap

From what I've read, the Pens played a pretty good game tonight sans Sidney Crosby. Also, the Capitals were without Alexander Ovechkin. One can easily picture Crosby, Ovechkin and Malkin drinkin beer/banging chicks in the press box.
The game was tied at 3 going into the third period. Sergei Gonchar scored to make it 4-3, but the Capitals' Jakub Klepis tied the game with about a minute left. In overtime, the ghost of Penguins past came back to haunt us as Matt Bradley(pictured at bottom) scored to send the eight people in attendance home, dejected.

  • Sergei Gonchar - 2 PP Goals
  • Ryan Whitney - 2 A
  • Dominic Moore - 1 G
  • Jakub Klepis - 1 G, 2 A
  • Marc-Andre Fleury - 19 saves on 24 shots
  • Powerplay - WAS (3 for 10) PIT (2 for 13)
  • Sergei Gonchar with two more goals.
  • Dominic Moore scores. We saw the goal on the news. It was nasty. He was looking solid against Philadelphia, too.
  • Fleury with some weak stats, but it's hard to comment on him without seeing the game.

Next Game: Tomorrow night (9/23). Against Buffalo. Hamilton, Ontario.
