The Pens Weather the Storm!

The Pens get their revenge tonight with a 5-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes and clinch the Atlantic Division title! The Canes came out hard and got the first goal. Pens were able to stay in the game and tie it up, but the Canes didn't give up. The Canes got a late goal in the third and look to have the game in hand. However the Pens scoring exploded with two goals coming from Bennett and Geno! The teams looked rather sloppy in most of the game plays, but turned it around in the third. Great to see the Pens get another Atlantic Division title and now it's time to get the Eastern Conference title!
