GTOG Instant Reaction: Brandon Sutter

By Finesse (follow me on Twitter)

Except for a brief stretch in the first period, this was an encouraging performance from the Pens even when Boston was still up 2-0.  The Bruins are the class of the Eastern Conference and have the #1 PK unit in the league.  They can frustrate you, even if you feel like you're playing well.

But what a f***ing breakthrough by the Pens late in the third.  Yes, the Bruins were on the second of a back-to-back, but good teams -- teams with expectations of winning the Stanley Cup -- win these games.  They plug away, and plug away, knowing that eventually they'll get a break.  That's what the Pens did.

Underrated performance by Fleury.  Full recap in the morning.  What a win.
