Pens lead 2-1 after one. And dear god is the hatred flowing. Steve Downie woke up the ghosts with a blind-side cheap shot on Ben Lovejoy.
Chris Kunitz responded with an elbow on Gagne.
In between the Pens got goals from Talbot and Asham. St. Louis scored for Tampa. After complaining the entire the period Tampa got handed a goal by the refs after a mind-numbing penalty call on Kovalev. Seriously hope someone puts it on youtube because if you didn't see it you're going to vomit.
Tampa Bay also basically tackled Kovalev and seem content on roughing him up. Vinny Lecavalier took a horrible penalty at the end of the period.
Pens start the second on the powerplay.
