In what was destined to be a third period win for the Pittsburgh Penguins turned into an overtme nailbiter!  They gave up two late goals to the Montreal Canadiens which forced a sudden death overtime.  More suspense was added in the final 1:30 of overtime when the Penguins took a Penalty to make them shorthanded for the remainder of the tilt.  Marc Andre Fleury did his job exceptionally well stopping several phenomenal attempts by the Canadiens to win it in sudden death.  After a near shorthanded goal by Jordan Staal, the Penguins held on to force the ever exciting shootout.  Marc Andre Fleury held gave up one goal in the shootout and Eric Christensen and Evgeni Malkin scored to win the game for the Pens.  Malkin picked up a regulation goal and assist, and Sidney Crosby picked up another 3 assists to push his league leading points to 82 points and league leading assists to 57!  What a great game!
