You know how sometimes you record a hockey game on DVR, and then when you settle in to watch it late at night, you realize it didn't record, and you feel profound disappointment and sense that there is some conspiracy against you because you know you hit record? Yeah, that happened last night. I took solace in the fact that it was only the Islanders, and I caught the last 8 minutes of regulation and overtime.
Alex Goligoski, clearly inspired by criticism this week from GTOG, fired the game-winning wrist shot in overtime for the Pens' first-ever win at Consol. I can't say in retrospect that I regret missing their previous seven power play chances. 1 for 8 against the Islanders is just abominable. Bring back Mike Yeo.
The other notable item last night was the major penalty and game misconduct issued to Kris Letang for this hit:
Great hit. Awful call. Nothing else to say about it.
The Pens are in Philadephia tonight. I'm setting two DVRs. LGP.
