Colin McDonald was flying out there tonight, and gave the Pens a lead they would never look back on. McDonald made it 2-1 WBS with a nice assist from Paul Thompson, who is quietly playing well in the top six right now. McDonald's second goal gave the Pens a 3-1 lead at the halfway mark of the opening period.
Zach Sill gave the Pens a 4-1 lead late in the first period on a nice deflection and that would be all the scoring tonight. Brad Thiessen looked good minus the first minute of the game, stopping 29 of the 30 shots he faced.
The win gives the WBS Penguins four in a row and five out of their last six. Pittsburgh won in a shootout tonight for their 5th win in a row. The organization is getting healthy and starting to get on a roll. Let's hope that continues tomorrow night when the AHL Penguins start a home and home series with the Syracuse Crunch.
LETS GO PENS!
