Pouliot, WBS Penguins Pull Out 6-5 OT Win to Even First-Round Series

David Warsofsky and Kevin Porter both post four-point games

by Nick Hart @WBSPenguins / Media Release

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Derrick Pouliot's goal at 7:49 of overtime was the difference, as the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins won a thriller, 6-5, over the Providence Bruins on Sunday afternoon at Dunkin' Donuts Center.

 Pouliot picked up a loose puck and skated through the neutral zone, eventually banking a shot off of the back of goaltender Zane McIntyre to even the best-of-five series 1-1. Game 3 is scheduled for Thursday night back in Wilkes-Barre.

The Penguins controlled much of the play in the early going, outshooting the Bruins 18-9 in the first period, but couldn't beat netminder Zane McIntyre during the opening frame.

That changed quickly in an offense-filled second period.

Though the Pens had the day off following their series-clinching win in Game 5 against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday, some guys just couldn't stay away from the rink as a big group of players went to PPG Paints Arena on Friday for the Eric Church concert.

"It was awesome," said Olli Maatta, who added that Church was the first country singer he listened to when he came over from Finland. "I think just being with the guys, it just kind of took your mind away from hockey. I think that was awesome. You are kind of recharged and have a lot of energy to get back into it."

Malkin being a difference-maker for Pens

by Michelle Crechiolo @PensInsideScoop / Penguins Team Reporter

"Quiet" isn't a word anyone would use to describe Evgeni Malkin on or off the ice.

On the ice, he makes dazzling, jaw-dropping, highlight-reel plays. Off the ice, he loves to have fun, always laughing and joking around with his teammates.

But one thing Malkin did relatively quietly in a series filled with storylines is rack up an NHL-leading 11 points in just five playoff games, with his nine assists ranking first as well.

When Marc-Andre Fleury led the Pens onto the ice for Game 1 of Pittsburgh's opening-round series against the Columbus Blue Jackets, the ovation he received from the crowd was one of the best moments in the history of PPG Paints Arena.
