Here are your Pens Points for this Thursday morning...

Last night kicked off the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Pens and Blue Jackets faced off in Game 1 of the first-round series. Matt Murray was a surprise scratch to start the game, but that wouldn't stop the Pens, as they went up 3-0 on the scoreboard through two periods of play. Flower would shut the door the rest of the way and the Pens took Game 1 by a score of 3-1!  [Pensburgh Recap]
