That's only one shootout too many from being a true thing of beauty. Had the Flyers at least beaten the Rangers in regulation, nothing would have changed points wise as far as threats to the Pens. Regardless, it's only a point. The Rangers (88) move within three of the Pens (91) and the lead for first in the Atlantic.
Big kudos and thank yous go out to the Islanders and their fans. I guess the day following news of DiPietro's expecteded full recovery from hip surgery really fired up the Islanders. Stupendous work. The Devils stay tied with the Pens at 91 points heading into tomorrow's game, where the winner will surely secure first in the Atlantic Division.
For a day or two of course. This thing is coming down to the wire.
