Penguins even series, beat Canadiens 3-1 in Game 2 – 15+ photos!
The Penguins beat the Canadiens 3-1 in Game 2, tying the series. Matt Murray made 26 saves, to Carey Price’s 35 (wow!) Kris Letang had a fantastic game, bolstering the Pens powerplay unit, creating lots of movement and net presence. Kris Letang played a total of 25 minutes and 3 shots.
Sullivan said they needed to have more of that above-mentioned net presence on the power play in particular, so it made perfect sense to move Patric Hornqvist back onto the first unit, as that’s his bread and butter. And on their first chance of the game, the first unit of Hornqvist, Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Jake Guentzel and Kris Letang looked phenomenal. They had a lot more movement and created a lot more chaos. – Snap Shots: Penguins 3, Canadiens 1 (Game 2)
