Penguins 5 - Rangers 4 (Penguins lead series 1-0)

It looked a little dicey for awhile as the Pens were down 3-0, but they steadily chipped away at the lead, tying it in the third, and then taking the lead 4-3. The Rangers tied it, but a late powerplay deflection goal by Malkin, off a shot by Crosby, was the game-winner.

The Pens were flying in the third, with precision passing like I haven't seen in a long time. It was lots of fun to watch. It's preposterous to compare these baby Penguins to the flying Oilers of the 80's, but I haven't enjoyed watching hockey this much since the glory days of Gretzky and Lemieux.

Go Pens!
