The Penguins rolled into Madison Square Garden with their depleted lineup, and took the Rangers to shootout, where they got the extra point to get out of New York with 2 points.
They took a tied 1-1 game into the 3rd period.
Chris Kunitz was called for goalie interference in the OT, when Henrik Lundqvist was so far outside of his net that he was basically in Brooklyn.
Jussi Jokinen, Sidney Crosby, Chris Kunitz, Pascal Dupuis denied by Lundqvist, before Brandon Sutter won it for the Penguins.
The post saved the day.
Henrik Lundqvist quickly filled the net.
MASH Moment: At one point, NBCSN flashed a graphic that showed all the current injuries to the Penguins.
Stunning. Nothing else to say.
Drawn Penalty Moment: Chris Conner kept his wheels spinning and did a great job of drawing a penalty.
Hand Eye Coordinated Moment: Olli Maatta is a special player.
If he would've scored on this shot, I wouldn't have anything else to GIF for the rest of my life.
For me, every period the Pens (mostly the young defense) play without giving up a goal is a little bit of a win in its own right.
Bad turnovers for the Pens at MSG seem to be a common occurrence.
The Penguins will return to Pittsburgh to play the second leg of a back-to-back, tomorrow night, hosting the Minnesota Wild.
