One for the road
The Penguins finally killed off a full power play, but they paid the price again for Max Talbot's unnecessary boarding call when Dominic Moore put the puck into a wide-open net with 4:25 left for an 8-2 lead and a 4-for-6 showing with the extra man.

Kris Letang took a boarding call on the play after flattening Nate Thompson (who took the hit to make the play), giving the Bolts yet another advantage -- that's five in the third period.
Quote of the Day

Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
