Several Steelers players and coach Mike Tomlin regularly are seen at Penguins games. Penguins captain Sidney Crosby once took batting practice at PNC Park -- the same field the Penguins, en masse, were honored on two days after claiming the Stanley Cup in 2009.

It looked like Anderson was about to do it again in the first period; he stopped a number of high-percentage chances against elite shooters like Jarome Iginla and Sidney Crosby. The Penguins had 16 shots in the first but came away with just one goal, by James Neal, and trailed 2-1.

Neal was not the only member of his line to snap a slump as Jarome Iginla also scored his first two goals of the series, providing the Penguins attack with more balance in support of their other scoring line of Sidney Crosby, Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis.
"Those guys are playing good hockey," Crosby said of Neal and Iginla. "In the playoffs, everyone's under...

For Methot, at least, this is nothing new.
