Penguins fall to the Rangers 4-3 in OT, Kris Letang gets his 36th assist!
It was a great 1st and 2nd period for the Pens, but not in the 3rd. The Penguins gave up too many chances and goals allowing the Rangers to fight back and win in OT. At least the Pens get a point from this game! Next one is against the Montreal Canadiens.
Kris got his 36th assist on the 2nd period Riley Sheahan goal. Season total points: 42
His total ice time was 25:04 – he lead his teammates.
* Riley Sheahan is probably the best 4th-line center in the entire NHL. And his presence alone makes Pittsburgh’s 4th unit a force with which to handle. Sheahan, who had 2 goals in 80 games last season, posted his 10th tally of the current year. He did it by skating through the slot and tipping a Kris Letang shot into the netting.
