Memorable Moments: Snow Fleuries

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

The Penguins took the ice for the first time since Monday and defeated the New Jersey Devils by a score of 3-2.

The Penguins opened tonight's game with a 3-0 lead. With two quick goals, the Devils got back into the game but were unable to tie the game at 3-3. The Penguins maintained their 3rd period lead to hold on for the win, anchored by a tremendous game from Marc-Andre Fleury.

Opening Moment: Pascal Dupuis opened the scoring for the Penguins, getting one on the board 41 seconds into the game.

Cory Schneider thought he had the puck covered, but the ROOT Sports cameras picked up the puck, completely uncovered.

Passing Moment: Joe Vitale made a great play to get the puck to Brandon Sutter, who won a battle along the wall with Eric Gelinas.

He made a tremendous pass to set up a streaking Chris Conner, who had broken into the zone unmarked, and beat Schenider

Megna Moment: Jayson Megna scored a great goal.

He battled down low with Adam Henrique, kept himself in position, and put home a great rebound goal that Deryk Engelland put on goal.

Comeback Moments: The Devils scored twice in 56 seconds, early in the 2nd period to close the lead from 3-0 to 3-2.

Patrik Elias had a beautiful re-direct to get past Fleury.

Fleury also handled a shot on goal poorly, and Dainius Zubrus got a stick on it as it trickled across the goal line.

Game Saving Moment: Fleury had to stand tall in the 3rd period.

He did so here, with a dazzling save.

Other:

Pens PK successful yet again (2 for 2)

Jayson Megna doing a tremendous job filling in for the suspended James Neal.

Great time-out by Bylsma after the 2 quick Devils goals to try and reign in the composure before things got worse.

Noticed Bortuzzo giving Jagr the business every time they were out together.

Seemingly good, physical game from Joe Vitale. He seems to be much better/more comfortable as a wing than he does as a center, as pointed out to me by Joe Depto (who also gets a big heads up for the title of this post)

The Pens will travel to Detroit to face the Red Wings tomorrow night at Joe Louis Arena.

Something to note for tomorrow's Red Wings game. For those Pens fans that are fans of donating and charity, some of us at Pensburgh have decided to team up with some Detroit fans towards a good cause.

The Production Line, a Red Wings site, are raising money to donate to The Children's Hospital of Michigan. It's a neat concept they have. Rather than just asking for donations, they ask for pledges for specific things.

Example: for tomorrow night's game, our Natasha has pledged to donate $50 for each point by Sidney Crosby. I have pledged $50 per goal for Malkin and $25 per assist for Malkin. it's a fun way to add a twist to donating money to a great cause and any help you can give is much appreciated by them.

Give their site a click, check it out, donate for tomorrow's Pens-Wings game if you can!
