The Pens Skewer The Sabres!

The Pens celebrate Hockey Day in American with a 4-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres! Pens came out hard and fast in the beginning, getting two goals early to go up 2-0 over the Sabres. However the Sabres battled back and were able to tie the game and then go ahead 3-2 by the third period. The Pens didn't let that last for long as Duper scored to tie the game 3-3, giving him his second goal of the game. The Pens made sure to take back their lead as Martin fired one giving the Pens the 4-3 lead. Flower really stayed strong in the net and kept the Sabres at bay along with some great defensive plays. It was a great game and exciting!
