Triple Overtime Thriller

What a game last night! After almost 6 full hockey periods, or two games worth, the Pittsburgh Penguins scored a sudden death triple overtime goal to win Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs 4-3.

By every statistical way you measure a hockey game, it was a dominating game by the Red Wings, but when you make the awkward mistake of shooting the puck into your own goal and giving the opposing team a 2-0 lead to start the game, sometimes mistakes like that are hard to overcome.

Detroit helped Pittsburgh last night. The Red Wings won't be helping the Penguins Wednesday night in Pittsburgh.

I don't know about you, but I'm going back to bed.

Thanks for reading.

Yep - what a game. I'm actually cheering for Pittsburgh, even though I can see that Detroit is actually the better team. As a Leafs fan, I have the luxury of cheering for whomever I want in the playoffs. At this point - I just want a game 7! Cheers!
