Game Photos - 4/16/2010 Pens vs Senators ECQF Game 2

The Penguins met the Senators at Mellon Arena in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal round matchup.  Pittsburgh obviously needed a big win to even this series up at 1 game apiece before heading north to Ottawa.  They did not disappoint the 17,132 in the building, the rain-soaked folks on the lawn or the countless fans at home watching on TV, computer or listening on the radio.  Much like the Pens of the early 90s, this year's team followed up a lackluster performance in Game 1 with a tight defensive effort in Game 2.  The result was a 2-1 victory that gets the Pens right back in the series.

Fortunately this would be all we would see of Thiessen tonight.  Nothing against Brad, but I'm sure we were all hoping for a solid outing from Marc-Andre.

I know a couple of Pensburgh members who will enjoy this one.

Maybe it was my imagination, but the coaches and players appeared a little more confident knowing they had the power of Pensburgh behind them.

The guy sitting in front of me summed it up best.

No photo post is complete without a little bit of the Orpik stare.
