The Pittsburgh Penguins were hoping to extend their eight-game winning streak to make it nine in a row with a victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs, but the Penguins just couldn't get anything in the net. The Leafs were able to pick up a goal early in the third period from Clarke MacArthur, his 16th goal of the season, assisted by Mikhail Grabovski and Nikolai Kulemin.
The one goal by MacArthur proved to be all the Leafs needed to snap the Penguins winning streak and draw even in the two game series. The Penguins outshot the Leafs 25-24, but James Reimer stopped every shot the Penguins threw at him. Then Penguins also wound up serving four times as many penalty minutes as the Leafs, giving Toronto four power plays.
