Pens vs Isles, a 4-3 OT win

Something good: Special teams were perfect. The power play was 2 for 2 and the penalty kill was 4 for 4. Your chances of winning are pretty good when you have that kind of an edge in those areas.

Where they need improvement: I don't know what the numbers say and I'm too lazy to look, but it felt like the Pens sleepwalked through most of the second, and the latter half of the third. It's good that they won, but that kind of inconsistency will bite you at some point.

Something good: Honorable mention to Kris Letang (who was noticeably more decisive with the puck and the only Penguin with more than 1 point), but I'll go with Matt Hunwick for the OT winner. He also had 7 shots on goal, which went a long way towards the ice tilting the Pens' way while he was out there.
