Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Penguins make it 4 straight wins tonight with a clutch comeback against the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Goals

In a very not cool moment, Phillip Di Giuseppe scores 42 seconds in, sneaking a shot past Matt Murray

Less than 4 minutes later Riley Nash would make it 2-0 and holy cow doesn't Carolina know they're supposed to lose this game?

The Pens would get on the board before the end of the first period thanks to Sidney Crosby pulling off a video game move on Eddie Lack.

In the second period Ian Cole fans on a shot that clicks off Carl Hagelin 's foot to a wide open Phil Kessel . Hey at least Kessel can finish something, hey haters?

Crosby redirects in a Cole shot to send the Pens up 3-2.

Kessel gifts Nick Bonino with a goal

Some Thoughts

  • 31-0-0 when up after 2 periods
  • Good game for Phil Kessel
  • Ditto Sid
  • Nice to see Murray settle down
  • 2 points closer to the playoff

4 straight wins for the Pens, next up a Saturday afternoon grudge match.
