Here are your Pens Points for this Friday morning...
Last night, the Penguins finished off another back-to-back by traveling to Calgary to battle the Flames. After Kris Letang took a penalty and as a result, gave the Flames a late 3rd-period lead, he went and pulled a “Dumb and Dumber” and totally redeemed himself with the game-tying goal. The Penguins would fall in OT, however, 2-1. [Recap]
