A few familiar faces were on the opposing side last night.

And Danny Richmond.
Pictured what he did all night long: nothing.

The Tangradi-Vitale-Sterling line was playing extraordinary. They were everywhere.
Vitale stole the puck in the defensive zone, and broke it out to Sterling on the right wing boards.
He puts a pass off the pads of goalie Rynnas and Tangradi slides the rebound home, five-hole. 1-0.

The Penguins keep rolling their four lines consistently.
They've been able to do so all year because their fourth liners can actually cycle and play hockey.
Sill gets the puck to Lerg, who just spins around the net and throws the puck in front.
Jesse Boulerice kicks it from his skate to his stick, and tickles the twine. 2-0.
 
Boulerice said he wanted to focus on being more productive offensively, instead of just fighting staged fights.
Don't be mistaken – he's still a heavyweight enforcer. He's only had to do that a few times this season.
He's got his 4th goal of the season.
 
Some more heavy forechecking from the Pens side, combined with banging bodies and the Marlies looked lost out there.
 
The hot line of the Big Dog – Joey V – The Ticket get back out there.
Tangradi feeds Sterling with a pass leading him right into the top of the circle.
Sterling snipes it with such a force, that the goalie's water bottle on top of the net shatters and goes flying off.
Elite level shot from a 5'7" lunatic of a hockey player. 3-0.

Two minutes later, Toronto's leading scorer Justin Hoghpoghgh scores the luckiest goal I've ever seen in any level of competitive hockey. 3-1.

Apparently, this guy couldn't afford tickets to the NHL game between the Leafs and Pens last night.
Nice chin-beard.

Toronto starts their back-up goalie, Ben Scrivens.
 
Second shift of the period for the Pens big line, and Vitale pulls back a clean face-off win.
Bortuzzo bangs on off the high-glass but Lashoff keeps the puck in the zone.
Vitale picks his pocket, and he comes in galloping on a 2-on-1 with Tangradi.
Saucer pass over to the Big Dog, who puts it five-hole again.
Basically last night's Kunitz to Crosby play, but from the reverse side. 4-1.
 
Scoring chances continued from here. Pens would outshoot Toronto 42-18.
 
Darryl Boyce takes a penalty late in the frame, and the Pens go to work on the powerplay.
Corey Potter fires a wrister from the point and it hits something in front, deflecting to the left wing.
Guess who's there to put it home. Tangradi — again. 5-1.
 
It's his first hatty since his last year of juniors in Belleville (OHL).
He tweeted before the game that his pre-game meal was consumed at the Olive Garden.
We can assume he'll be attending that restaurant from now on, during game days.

Both teams packed it in. That's all she wrote.

Game.
Carlton still perfect.
WB/S is 21-4.
 
Jeffrey didn't register a point in this one, but he managed to make his way onto a new Nike Ad:
Thanks to [LisATaranto] for sending that in.
