Snap Shots: Flames 3, Pens 2 (SO)

*Entering the game all of the conversations circled around Sidney Crosby and if he would record the 3 points he needed to reach the incredible 1,000-career point milestone.

Unfortunately for those in attendance, Crosby did not reach the milestone. But he did chip away at it.

Crosby set up Chris Kunitz’s third-period goal to give him 998 career points.

The quest for 1,000 now stands at 2.

*Though they didn’t win, the Pens gave themselves a chance in the shootout thanks to an incredible job by the PK unit. The Flames have scored the third-most power-play goals (t-39) in the NHL entering the game and their PP ranked 7th in the league in conversation rate.
