Game 5 Vs Lightning

Marc Andre Fleury started in-game 5 and Trevor Daley is out of the rest of the playoffs with a broken ankle.  The Penguins had a good first period and Brian Dumoulin scored with 00.7 left in to give them a 1-0 lead.   Ninety seconds into the second period Patric Horniqvist scored on a tip in of a Carl Hagelin shot to give the Pens a 2-0 lead.  Fleury made some big saves early in the second period when Tampa was on the power play.

Tampa killed off a penalty and Alex Killorn scored on a wrist shot to cut the Penguins lead to 2-1. A minute and ten seconds later Nikita Kucherov scored on wrist shot to tied the game at 2.  Then in the last-minute of the second period Chris Kunitz scored to give the Penguins a 3-2 lead.  Neither team has done anything on the power play.

Ollie Maata got called for a 4 minute high sticking, but it became a 4-4 when Tampa’s Tyler Johnston tripped Kris Letang. The referees allowed two blatant hooking called when Bryan Rust got hauled down, and Evgeni Malkin hooked Tyler Johnson. Both goalies made great saves and kept the third period scoreless.   After a Ryan Callahan goal was disallowed, Kucherov scored his second goal of the game to tie the game at 3 forcing an overtime period.

The overtime period didn’t last long because a Jason Garrison shot went off Tyler Johnson’s back and Tampa won the game 4 to 3 and lead the series 3 games to 2.  Fleury could not be  faulted on the overtime goal.  The Penguins have to win game six Tuesday night at the Amalie Arena with the faceoff at 8:00 P.M.
