Memorable Moments: 0.3 Seconds

Coming off of a loss on the road in Montreal on Saturday night, the Penguins traveled into Boston to face the Bruins at the TD Garden. They gave up a 2-0 lead early, rallied back to tie it twice, and lost in OT by a score of 4-3.

The Penguins have now lost two games in a row (but at least got 1 point in this one), to the Canadiens and the Bruins. Both of these games took place on the road, in buildings that aren't easy to play in. I would've liked to see the Penguins get the monkeys off their backs and get a win on the road in Boston, but alas, that was not the case.

Dangling Moment: Early in the game, Evgeni Malkin was able to drive through the neutral zone with a head of steam, and dangled around Zdeno Chara, while making it look easy.

Malkin was past Chara before he even knew what happened. Rask stood tall early in the game.

Fanned Moment: Brooks Orpik fanned on an attempt to put a shot on goal. What followed wasn't pretty.

The puck went the other way, Orpik made an awful decision as far as following the puck/man, combined with a bad back checking effort by James Neal and the Penguins. Goal scored by Loui Eriksson.

The Bruins followed that goal up with another from Reilly Smith.

Comeback Moments: James Neal x2. When Neal is feeling it, his shot is just sick.

Stunned Moment: Johnny Boychuk, realizing that the game was tied.

Deflection Moment: Sidney Crosby had a perfect deflection. The only bad thing about it was that it was a shot on his own goal, and his own goalie.

He was clearly upset afterwards. So rare to see a player like Crosby make this kind of mistake.

0.3 Seconds Moment: Sidney Crosby is ridiculous.

Great play by Chris Kunitz to even get the puck on net and Crosby to redeem himself for his lapse in judgement a few minutes prior to send the game to OT.

But.....Torey Krug ended it shortly into OT to get the 2 points for the Bruins.

At least the Pens were able to steal 1 point.

The Penguins will head home to Pittsburgh and attempt to regroup and get back in the win column vs. the Toronto Maple Leafs, who lost tonight to the Blue Jackets by a score of 6-0. Should be an interesting game.

Bad news came out from Bylsma after the game that Beau Bennett had surgery on his injured wrist and is looking at an 8-10 week recovery time.
