Penguins score with 10 seconds to go to tie Montreal 3-3 (22-Oct-2002)
The Penguins get two power play goals in the third period to tie the Canadiens 3-3. Alexei Kovalev scored twice for Pittsburgh and Aleksey Morozov got the game-tying goal on the power play at 19:50 of the third with Johan Hedberg pulled.
  • Lines: Morozov-Lemieux-Kovalev, Vujtek-Hrdina-Daigle, LaCouture-Primeau-Nieminen and McKenna-Manderville-Donovan.
  • Defensive pairings: Tarnstrom-Moran, Bergevin-Rozsival and Jonsson-Pushor.
  • Goaltender: Johan Hedberg
  • Alexei Kovalev opened the scoring at 12:49 of the first period. After Kovalev hustled to nullify an icing call in the right corner, he skated behind the net, came out front and backhanded a high shot which got by Montreal goaltender, Jose Theodore.
    • Pittsburgh, Alexei Kovalev 3 (Mario Lemieux), 12:49
  • Montreal tied the game at one when Joe Juneau scored at 14:26. Juneau took a pass from Jan Bulis and snapped it one-time by Johan Hedberg from below the left circle.
    • Montreal, Joe Juneau 2 (Jan Bulis, Karl Dykhuis), 14:26

  • Shots after two were 18-17 in favor of Pittsburgh.
  • The Canadiens seemed to have iced the game when Andrei Markov made it a two goal lead at 5:34. Off a nice give-and-go passing play, Saku Koivu fed Markov who one-timed it by Hedberg from out front.
    • Montreal, Andrei Markov 2 (Saku Koivu, Richard Zednik), 5:34
  • Alexei Kovalev began the comeback with his second of the game at 11:19 on the power play. Mario Lemieux dropped the puck to Kovalev at the left point. Kovalev skated towards the goal and beat a screened Theodore with a wrist shot shortside high.

  • The Penguins were given a power play with 1:30 to go in the game and then pulled Johan Hedberg with 30 seconds to play.
