Game 6 GIF Highlights: The C-Bus Has Reached its Final Stop

Following a disappointing end to game 4, the Penguins vowed to outwork the Jackets for the rest of the series and allow their skilled players to outshine the Blue Jacket's forwards. After a strong showing in game 5, the Pens rode their momentum into the third period last night, building a 4-0 lead in the process. Following injuries to Brandon Sutter and Joe Vitale, the Penguins stopped attacking and got content with the idea of killing off the final 10 minutes. Much like game 4, this strategy backfired and led to a furious finish. Thanks to a couple of big saves by Fleury during this assault, the Penguins were able to hang on despite allowing numerous A+ chances in the final frame.

On a positive note, Evgeni Malkin finally broke out of his goal slump, with Sidney Crosby playing a significant role in the first two goals. Following a strong effort on the PK, Brandon Sutter broke away with Lee Stempniak and buried it on the backhand side, continuing his strong series. Finishing off the scoring was Evgeni Malkin on a 2 on 1 with James Neal. In his own words, while carrying the puck towards the net, Geno knew he was score, and beat Bobrovsky to the blocker side.
