Snap Shots: Pens 4, Blues 1
It’s not often you get to see two defensemen have breakaways out of the penalty box on the same shift, but we got treated to that tonight. The Blues had 1:20 of a 5-on-3 advantage that started when Ian Cole and Kris Letang both took penalties late in the first. When Cole was released, he got a pass and went in alone – but his shot sailed high. When Letang was let out shortly after, Carter Rowney hit him with the puck and he went forehand deke to help the rookie get his first career NHL point.

Also, credit to the Pens out there killing – primarily Matt Cullen, Nick Bonino, Olli Maatta and of course Fleury – to allow Cole and Letang to even get those chances.

The Blues certainly played a physical game, and got nastier as time went on – giving the Pens five power plays as a result. Carl Hagelin left in the first period after taking a high hit and did not return (head coach Mike Sullivan said he will be re-evaluated when they get back to Pittsburgh). While the Pens hit them where it truly hurts – the scoreboard – you don’t like to see those kinds of plays. They stayed disciplined, though, with Cole and Letang taking the only penalties.
