Morrow to the Rescue - Pens Win in OT

Sunday, February 24, 2013
Another low scoring game last night as the Penguins knocked off the Connecticut Whale in overtime.

The game was scoreless into the third period, when Trevor Smith found former Whale and current Penguin Chad Kolarik for a cross ice one-timer that Cameron Talbot had zero chance of stopping.

Fifteen seconds later, Tom Kostopoulos took an interference minor and shortly after Zach Sill made it a two man disadvantage after a double minor for high sticking. Brandon Segal tied the game at one 1:27 after Kolarik opened the scoring.

Kolarik took a delay of game penalty with 1:26 left in regulation and luckily the Pens killed it off. No one wanted to win this game for the Penguins more than Kolarik. After all, the Rangers organization traded him to Pittsburgh last month.

With less than a minute to go in overtime, Trevor Smith wins an offensive face-off back to Joe Morrow. The puck was on edge so instead of taking a quick one-timer, Morrow decided to corral the puck and make the safe play and just wrist it on net. Well, the wrister through traffic eluded Talbot and sent the sold out Mohegan Sun Arena crowd into a frenzy.

Penguins finish their three-game weekend with a 3 p.m. game against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers this afternoon.
