Pens Rake Leafs!

The Pens get the win 5-4 in a shootout over the Maple Leafs! The Pens came out flying in the first two periods, but let their lead slip away as the Leafs tied it up 4-4 late in the third period. The teams went to overtime, but that wasn't enough and this game was to be decided by a shootout. Flower made two amazing saves on Leafs shooters, Bozak and Kadri! Neal got one through the 5 hole of Reimer and Sid scored the winning shot with a high shot over the glove of Reimer! It was another close game, but the Pens came out victorious.
