Riley Sheahan ends his goal drought and scores for the Penguins

The third-line center the Penguins recently acquired has scored a goal!

NHL: Pittsburgh Penguins at Vancouver Canucks Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

Last night, Riley Sheahan, the third-line center that Jim Rutherford went and acquired from the Detroit Red Wings last month, scored a goal.

His troubles finding the back of the net recently have been well documented. Sheahan went all of last season without scoring a single goal, only to score two in the 82nd game of the season, which happened to be the last game at Joe Louis Arena.

Last night, in his 12th game with the Penguins, he did score a goal.

Okay, okay, it was an empty-net goal, but it still counts.
