A short-handed goal from the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Jordan Staal sparked an onslaught that saw the Pens even their Stanley
Kubric Steemer Tucci Cup Final series with the Detroit Red Wings after winning, 4-2, in Pittsburgh. The series heads back to Detriot for Game 5 on Saturday. From Y! Sports:
Staal’s goal instantly changed a major opportunity by Detroit to seize control not only of the game but the series into a tie game, and the 17,132 jammed into a suddenly rocking Mellon Arena sensed how big the play might be. And they were right.
“That was a big momentum changer for us,” Talbot said. “The building was so loud, it gave us a lot of emotion.”
Perhaps the most spectacular goal of the night was that of Tyler Kennedy, who capped off what everyone seems to enjoy calling a tic-tac-toe play to beat Chris Osgood. Video of that goal is after the jump, and if it doesn’t make you wet your pants the first time you see it, then I’m not sure we can be friends anymore.
