Pens win 3-2 in Shootout against the Kings!

Sorry I didn't have updates for each period, like the other games. My internet was going in and out, so it was hard to listen to the radio on their website (I don't live in Pittsburgh, sadly) I will try give a quick recap of the game. Can't make any promises. 
The Kings scored in the first period and carried that lead into the third period. Engo started the comeback with a pass to his defensive partner Joseph Morrow, who ripped a shot pass Kings' goalie Jonathan Bernier. The Kings scored once more to get back the lead! However, Kuni finished the scoring in regulation time by scoring to tie the game 2-2! The game went into overtime, but nothing change. It was time for a shootout and it went to eight rounds. Niskanen was the Penguin to end it all and give the Pens the win. "I'm not a very good stickhandler, so I thought I'd just shoot it...And what do you know, it must have fooled him somehow," Niskanen said with a grin. Flower also had a great game and kept the Pens in the game! In the first 65 minutes, Flower stopped 20 out of 21 shots and stopped seven out of eight shots in the shootout!

Great Job!! Way to go PENS!
