Score Still 2-1 After Two Periods In Game 3

No score in the second period of Game 3 for the Pittsburgh Penguins and Tampa Bay Lightning.

Ryan Malone, who we mentioned left the game, has returned for a few shifts- but he’s obviously laboring out there and not playing as much as normal. Still, he’s out there and heart-and-soul type player can inspire a team on for vicroty.

A key for the Pens to bring this home will be pressure from their forwards. The Pens have the shot advantage through two periods, it’s 21-17. But 11 of those have come off the stick of defensemen, including team leader Kris Letang’s 5.

With one period to go, Pittsburgh is in a great position, but Tampa’s last push will be a strong one as they attempt to win their first playoff game of the year in front of their home fans.
