Final Score: Pittsburgh 3, Boston 2 (OT)
Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Evgeni Malkin scored 32 seconds into overtime
to lift the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Monday.
Malkin skated to the top of the right circle and one-timed a feed from Sidney
Crosby through the pads of Tuukka Rask for his second goal of the game. Crosby
had the other Pittsburgh goal and finished with two assists, while Marc-
Andre Fleury earned his 300th career win with a 27-save performance. Milan
Lucic and Joe Morrow scored 28 seconds apart in the second period for
Boston. Rask stopped 30 shots in defeat.
Final Score: NY Islanders 1, Philadelphia 0 (SO)
Uniondale, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Frans Nielsen's shootout goal lifted the
New York Islanders to a 1-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in a goaltenders'
duel on Monday. Philly's Steve Mason made a season-high 46 saves through
regulation and overtime, while Jaroslav Halak stopped 21 shots. Nielsen put
the first puck past either goaltender with New York's second chance, as
he buried a wrister past Mason. Claude Giroux then beat Halak back to the
forehand and his low shot appeared to have an open path to the net, but Halak
slammed the glove arm down and kept it out. Jonathan Tavares then sealed
the victory as he went back and forth before lifting a backhand into the
right corner of the net. Both goaltenders were given a shutout in the game,
as Mason notched his first of the year and 24th of his career, while Halak
nabbed his third of the season and 33rd of his career.
