Kris Letang scores a goal in the 3rd, Penguins beat the Lightning 6-2
Kris Letang had a great night, scoring a goal in the 3rd period, his 3rd of the season. The Penguins beat the Lightning 6-2, with a hugely offensive 3rd period (4 goals!) from the Pens.
– On the first play, Cullen chased down a puck below the goal line and swept a pass to a crashing Fehr, who had the open net but was denied by a ridiculous glove save by Andrei Vasilevskiy. After a big PK effort, the two of them went down the ice again – and would not be denied a second time. Cullen saucered a pass over to Fehr, who one-timed it into a sliver of the net before Vasilevskiy could get over.
– The Pens spread out the scoring in this game, with their depth players stepping up big on the scoresheet as Conor Sheary, Scott Wilson, Chris Kunitz all found the back of the net. In the first two periods the Lightning did a good job of staying structured and broke up a lot of plays with good sticks, but the Pens broke the game open in the third.
