And there you have it ESPN’s Sean McDonough on the call very late last night as the Pittsburgh Penguins authored a little playoff history off the stick of Evgeni Malkin in game one of the opening playoff series against the Rangers, in triple Overtime!
Andrew Copp had the Rangers staked to a 2-0 lead before the Pens went to work, getting back to back goals from Jake Guentzel to tie it, the Rangers responded with a shortie from Kris Kreider before Bryan Rust tied things up on a 5 on three in the second period, we then went over three full periods before Malkins game winner. 4-3 In Triple Overtime.
The win brought forth a few more pieces of adversity for the Pens on the injury front first for injured players who didnt play in game one. Forward Jason Zucker took a full contact skate Today hes day to day
As is goalie Tristan Jarry who did not skate Today
In game the Pens lost Rickard Rickell to an upper body injury he did not return hes being evaluated and is listed day to day as is Casey Desmith who left in the second overtime and did not return hes the first goalie in NHL history to leave a game in the second overtime
