QUICK CAP: Say yes to the two points. Pens respond with shootout win over Ducks.

On Friday night Dan Bylsma made an appearance on TLC's "Say Yes to the Dress." He was helping Penguins PR woman Jen Bullano pick out a dress.
 
 
In the eary morning hours of Saturday, Bylsma made another big-time decision concerning people dressed in white. With the Penguins getting dominated by the Ducks, Bylsma did something he has been accused of not being able to do.
 
He adjusted.
Bylsma broke up Jokinen-Malkin-Neal and switched Jokinen with Taylor Pyatt.
 
This gave the Penguins this
 
Crosby-Kunitz
Malkin-Neal
Sutter-Jokinen.

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.

Our Three Stars

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.

1. Dan Bylsma

For the reasons mentioned above.
