This was the best game the Penguins have played in a really long time. From the first period on, they were the better team. Relentless performance.
The got goals from Paul Martin, Beau Bennett, Sidney Crosby and James Neal.
Marc-Andre Fleury with the shutout.
Our Three Stars
3. Paul Martin / Brooks Orpik.
Unbelievable performance by this duo. Matched up against A.O. they both shut him down. Paul Martin may have played the perfect game.
2. Sidney Crosby.
Crosby's power-play goal late in the second period basically sealed the game, not to mention it was just sick. Crosby controlled the game in almost every aspect, on every shift.
1. Marc-Andre Fleury.
Maybe the problem was Marc-Andre Fleury wasn't playing enough? Fleury didn't do anything crazy, but he managed the game. Shutting out the Caps in Washington ain't nothing to laugh at.
