Pittsburgh Penguins Fan Blog: For the Fans, by the Fans
Through the FANS Pens v. Panthers (3\/9\/12)


Facing their third opponent on home ice this week, the Pittsburgh Penguins saw their fourth and final season match up against the Florida Panthers. Seeded atop the Southwest Division, the Panthers struck first taking a 1-0 lead in the second.

Just as some fans begin to express despair, it's #26 Steve Sullivan on the breakaway who ties the contest at 1 in the third period:

"Steve Sullivan has been unbelievable lately. Not so sure how that went in, but the #Pens tie it up 1-1." --@Peejlewiz

"That goal was so sick! #pens it was magic!" --@SlimGent


     "@pghpenguins Sullivan is a monster right now. #unstoppable" --@pensforchamps


After an action packed third period, the Pens and Panthers went into overtime.

"Bonus hockey! 1-1 #Pens and #FlaPanthers after regulation." --@RatMcFink

"ahhhhhhhhhh overtime, come on Penguins LETS GET ER' DONE!!!! #LetsGoPens #Pens" --@KeishaWright

But the game had to be decided in a shootout. With goals from James Neal and then Evgeni Malkin, the Penguins claim their eighth straight win.

"Malkin 8-11 on shootouts, what a stud" --@RobbySwagger

"7 is great but 8 is even better! Nice job #Pens" --@KLGreco17

"@pghpenguins Whenever Fleury gets any star it makes me grin insanely, like you have no idea. #FlowerPower" --@ms_grovette
