Canadiens Vs. Penguins Final Score: Pittsburgh Comes Back In Third Period And Wins It In A Shootout To Keep Streak Alive

After two periods, it appeared the Pittsburgh Penguins winning streak would stop at four games on Friday night but the Pens fought back against the Montreal Canadiens in the third period on to even it at 4-4. Pittsburgh was led once again by the brilliance of No. 71, Evgeni Malkin. Geno tied it at four with less than three minutes remaining in the third, tallying goal no. 25 of the season on an assist from James Neal. That dynamic duo continues to carry the Pens through an injury-plagued winter. An incredible move by Malkin would give Pittsburgh the advantage in a shootout, and Marc-Andre Fleury would slam the door on all three of Montreal's attempts.

Fleury struggled a little bit early, giving up two goals in each of the first two periods as the Pens fell behind 4-2. But on two separate occasions, Dustin Jeffrey would cut a two-goal lead in half as he beat Carey Price for the first two goals of his season. He even beat out Malkin for the number one star of the game. Jeffrey's second goal was huge, making it a one-goal game with more than sixteen minutes remaining on the clock. The Pens would use nearly all of it before Malkin evened it up.

The Pens now welcome the rival Washington Capitals to town as they look to continue their streak in a matinee game on Sunday.

Canadiens Vs. Penguins Score Update: Montreal Has A 4-2 Lead Heading Into The Final Period

It they want to win their fifth game in a row, the Pittsburgh Penguins will have to make up a two-goal deficit in the final period against the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs have scored two goals on Marc-Andre Fleury in each of the first two periods in front of consecutive sellout no. 232 at Consol Energy Center.

Playing in just his second game back, Kris Letang got to work quickly and scored his fourth goal of the season to even it at 1-1 in the first period. Letang took a nice feed from Pascal Dupuis and beat Carey Price for the goal. After leading the Pens in ice time last night at Madison Square Garden, it was a welcome sight to see Letang get back on the board. The Pens added their second goal when Dustin Jeffrey scored his first of the year on a shorthanded play from Zbynek Michalek. But Montreal responded right back, as Max Pacioretty made it a two-goal game yet again. Despite being outshot by the Pens, the Canadiens have capitalized on their scoring chances for the 4-2 lead.
