  • Pittsburgh 4 Rangers 3 (Shootout): Sidney Crosby will not be stopped. The Penguins’ star was held scoreless in the game, but provided the game-winner in overtime to give Pittsburgh the victory. But, this was a game that never should have gotten to a shootout.

    The Rangers dominated the first two periods, building a 2-0 lead behind goals from Jagr and Nylander. Once again, it was short-handed goals that killed them as they gave up two of them to start the third period. They managed to take the lead back off of the power play, but then fell into a tie when Pittsburgh scored on their own power play.

    And so it came down to the shootout and while Jaromir Jagr did the right thing and participated, no one scored until Crosby lit the lamp for the win.

  • Blues 3 Islanders 2: Rick DiPietro took the wrong penalty at the wrong time. Whistled for holding the stick at 19:39 of the third period, DiPietro gave up the game-winner on a pretty one-timer by Lee Stempniak.
  • Yankees 6 Twins 1: Chien-Ming Wang got six outs in a row and Johnny Damon and Jason Giambi homered to give the Yankees a victory in their Grapefruit League opener.
