Pens Even Series

With the Ottawa Senators by winning tonight’s Game 2 at Mellon Arena 2-1.  The obvious story was Sidney Crosby, who scored the first goal, made a diving play to clear a puck off the goal line early in the 3rd period, and made a Bobby Orr-like play skating around behind the net before passing to Letang for the winning goal with about 3:30 remaining.  But it wouldn’t take Barry Melrose to analyze the difference between this game and Game 1 that Ottawa won.  Tonight the Pens showed they cared, they played with passion, energy, and intensity.  They found the on switch.  If they play like that consistently they will wear down this Ottawa team and win in about 6 games.  If they don’t they will be vulnerable to the early exit.
