Surprisingly, most Pens fans were still in the building as the overtime period got underway. Unfortunately they were rewarded by watching the Blues get the game winning goal with just over a minute left to play.

Time to take a break, eat a little turkey, and get back down to business Friday night against the Senators. Look forward to another game photos post after that one!
