Pens beat wings 7-6 in OT

We're pretty pissed that we didn't get to watch all of this game. We were already pretty mad we didn't get to see it, and now that's multiplied by about a million. We saw some of the first period and then started watching in the third again on a crappy internet feed when it was 6-4 or so (if we're wrong, we're wrong, we've been up since 6:30 a.m.). Seeing the Pens come back and tie and then win in OT was pretty fulfilling though. Seeing Jordan Staal basically do anything and everything was pretty awesome too. So who's still calling for that trade now? Staal had a hat trick and also set up the game winner by stealing the puck and passing it to Ruslan Fedotenko who scored the game winning goal. From what we saw of this game, this is the Pens we want to see. Fired up and ready to go, even when down 5-2. They fought back hard and it paid off. The PG has a poll up asking which means more, the win over the Wings or the way they won it. To us it's a no-brainer, it's the way they won that will serve them better in the long run. Although we're willing to bet beating the Wings felt pretty good too.
