*This win was about redemption for the Pens. The last time these teams met the Pens were shellacked by Columbus, 7-1. Pittsburgh didn’t want to just even the score, but wanted to redeem their performance from that night. They pulled that off by defeating Columbus in overtime and the entire bench emptied after Phil Kessel‘s overtime winner. That’s how much this game meant to the Pens.
