1:53 - The Pens are able to kill off the rest of the power play chance by the Jets.

3:43 - Jets power play for 1:53 left. Murray looks really shaky in net. He is giving up a lot of rebounds and is fighting the puck tonight.

3:50 - Byfuglien scores. Byfuglien skates right up to the net and puts in a rebound chance. 3-2 Jets

4:50 - That ends the power play for the Pens. Four-on-four once again, this time for 1:04.

6:50 - Sestito nails Enstrom into the boards. He will receive a five-minute boarding major and is off to the locker room. Copp also gets two minutes for attacking Sestito. We will have a four-on-four for two minutes then the Jets will get a power play for three minutes. Enstrom heads to the locker room.

8:03 - MALKIN SCORES! Malkin receives a lead pass and is all alone in the offensive zone! He has no problem beating Hellebuyck short side! 2-2 tie game

8:23 - Of course after I say that about Sestito he comes back onto the ice.

9:04 - Sestito has not come back from the locker room since leaving the box. So the Pens are down a forward.

10:51 - Byfuglien gets a mini breakaway, but his shot goes up over the net.

11:00 - Ehlers scores. Ehlers rifles a rocket shot past Murray. Murray was deep in his net on that shot. 2-1 Jets

11:42 - Copp gets the puck in front and his shot is under the pad of Murray. He crashes into the net and pushes the Murray and his pad. The puck is dislodged and ends up in the net. The referees call it a good goal. The Pens challenge for goalie interference and they rule it no goal!

15:17 - BONINO SCORES! The Pens win the board fight and Bonino rifles a shot through traffic using Byfuglien as a screen! He beats Hellebuyck to tie this game! 1-1 tie game.

15:42 - Matthias scores. Lowry slides a pass to Matthias who drags the puck across the front of the net and puts it five-hole on Murray. 1-0 Jets

16:25 - Well the fighting is not done just yet. Sestito and Thorburn drop them. Both get some blows in.

16:27 - Malkin and Wheeler drop the gloves. Hopefully that puts that issue to rest.

17:46 - That will be the end of the power play for the Pens. Malkin was getting booed every time he touched the puck. This is for the hit he laid on Wheeler in Pittsburgh last game.

19:46 - The first power play goes to the Pens as Ehlers sits for slashing. 

20:00 - The puck has dropped! The Pens have to come out with speed and take it to the Jets! Lets Go Pens!
