Pittsburgh continued on their roll tonight. They yet again picked up the win and in doing so, they passed the Rangers and are now in second place in the Metropolitan division.
They once again put a bunch of the pucks in the net and beat the Nashville Predators 5-2. They also got some help from the Carolina Hurricanes who beat the Rangers in regulation.
Phil Kessel continued his amazing hot streak by scoring another 2 goals. He now has 4 goals and 5 assists in his last 4 games. He is peaking at the right time with the playoffs just around the corner. The Pens are hoping he can be a force and help them win at least a few rounds in the playoffs. Bonino also chipped in another goal and has also been playing very well as of late.
The Pens now have 96 points, one more than the Rangers and both teams have 5 games remaining. It is going to be one crazy finish to the season!
Here is Kessel's first goal, which was a beauty. Courtesy of NHL.com:
