A fantastic win for the Penguins against the Tampa Bay Lightning!
Kris posted on Instagram, celebrating the big win!
The Pens went with Kris Letang and Justin Schultz on the points – “Both those two shoot the puck and I think our mindset going into the game was we have to make sure we shoot the puck and retrieve and go from there,” said Hornqvist, who joined Crosby and Kessel up top.
Letang went to take a shot and his stick broke, the puck popping free in the slot. Lightning defenseman Dan Girardi went to clear it, but before he could get to it, Hornqvist lifted his stick and stole the puck for himself. He passed it to Crosby, who fired it across to Kessel at the backdoor for the goal.
“He worked so hard and on that one goal, it was all him,” Schultz said of Hornqvist. “He created it. Second effort and he does that every night, so it’s good.”
