ESPN Game Recap

Well...crap. I listened to this game with the PittsburghPenguins.com streaming feed of Mike Lange and Phil Bourque (it was great to listen to Lange again). Lange was drinking, I believe. But, nonetheless, it was still great to sit back and visualize the game as Mike Lange announces it/talks about his old neighbor's dog whose nickname was Max.

Colby Armstrong scored the lone first period goal, with Crosby and Ekman getting assists. In the second Daniel Briere scored to tie it up, but John LeClair scored about a minute later to give the Pens a 2-1 lead going into the third period.

Ron MacLean, longtime National Hockey Night in Canada host, helped officiate the game tonight.


The third period was the period that special teams play built. Teppo Numminen (yes, still alive) scored thirty seconds in, shorthanded, to tie the game up. With eight minutes left, Army scored a power play goal and the Pens started to caress their narrow lead's breasts. 3 minutes later, Maxim Afinogenov scored a pretty goal (shorthanded) to tie the game up.

In overtime, Adam Mair scored for Buffalo and that was it.

Stats
  • Crosby - 2 A
  • Armstrong - 2 G
  • Thibault - 25 saves
  • Shots: BUF - 29 PIT - 18
  • Faceoffs Won: BUF - 23 PIT - 34
  • Powerplay: (Buf 1 for 9) (Pens 1 for 8)
  • Buffalo - 2 shorthanded goals
These two teams will head up 79 North, then 90 East for the preseason's final game...tomorrow in Buffalo.
