Pens beat Blackhawks 5-4

The Pens went into Chicago and despite a hat trick from Toews, came out with an overtime win over the Blackhawks 5-4. New winger Chris Kunitz scored his first goal in his first period as a Penguin. Staal played a huge game and got a goal. Marc-Andre Fleury faced a flurry of shots and made a lot of huge saves. Geno was quiet until it was time for a big goal when he netted the overtime winner.

This was a fun game to watch and of course the Pens couldn't make it easy on us by giving up two leads. You have to give them credit for not ever being down though. They played well through two periods but the third was all Blackhawks. Fleury had to face a ton of shots and we thought he did well considering. We didn't really even notice Geno a whole lot the entire game until the overtime. He took several shots and that one timer for the game winning goal was a nice shot. Exactly what Geno is supposed to do. Make big plays in big games.

We'll put together the recap later and hopefully get all the info on the Steelers later as well. It's 3 a.m. and we're off for some sleep. Here are some links in the meantime.
