Pens Capitalize and Defeat Washington

Hey pens fans,
Okay, I know that my title is a bad pun, but hey it works. This afternoon, the Pens defeated the Washington Capitals at the Mellon Arena. The final score was 3-2. The Pens opened up the scoring with Recchi's power play goal assisted by Gonchar and Crosby, to make it 1-0. Then, Washington tied it up to make it 1-1 to end the first period. In the second, Malkin made it 2-1 assisted by Gonchar and Ouellet. In the third, Talbot scored to make it 3-1 and he was assisted by Armstong and Christensen. With under a minute to go Washington scored again to make it 3-2. Thibault was in goal stopping 29 of 31 shots and was he ever lucky on some of those. Our defense worked themselves hard to keep the pucks away from him today. They will be tired after this one. No rest for the wweary, however, the Pens head out tonight to face the Islanders tomorrow at 1 pm.
