And it worked. Pyatt didn't shit himself with Neal and Malkin. Stempniak was okay. Joe Vitale is embarrassing, but at least he had NHL players playing with him.
The Penguins were able to stabillize in the third period and tie the game. They won it in the shootout, pulling out an improbable two points in a game they were getting outshot 21-4 at one point.
Huge response after their beatdown in San Jose.

3. Evgeni Malkin
Two points and the game-tying goal when the Pens needed it. Malkin looks as joyless as he ever has playing hockey. Hopefully the goal has helped.
2. Corey Perry
Perry is terrific. He's an asshole, but he is a hell of a player. He was a difference on every shift.

For the reasons mentioned above.
