Pens 0 - Lightning 2: 2nd Intermission Quick Hits

The Pens continue the strong play, but the Lightning continue to make the most of their limited opportunities. This time on the PP, Connolly drives hard to the net from the corner and Engelland fails to pick him up. Moore unloads a quick shot from the slot that Connolly manages to deflect behind Fleury. The Pens PP looked very strong this period, getting a number of excellent chances on net from all over the offensive zone.

The difference so far has clearly been Dwayne Roloson. Somehow, playing the Penguins rejuvenates the aging goaltender, who has been plagued by some poor starts of late. Not tonight. Roloson is playing every bit as dominant as he ever was when the Pens met him back in the playoffs last season. The Pens need to keep the pressure on and try to find a way to beat the Tampa defense to the rebounds and lose pucks in front.

Third period upcoming. The Pens still very much in this, but they need to solve Roloson early...
