Penguins looking to get a win at home tonight to bring this series within one game, Pens getting some great chances early on one as Trevor Smith intercepts the puck at the blue line takes it in on Niklas Svedberg, but Svedberg deflects it into the netting.
Penguins get the first power play of tje game but the WBS power play has been struggling to get things going and do not convert but get some nice chances right after the power play ends. WBS would het a second chance on the power play but still nothing to show for it. Zach Sill sits in the bin late in the first period for a slash Providence would not convert but would get a carry over of 1:01 for the second frame.
Penguins where deep in their zone for more than they should have been this period finally starting to pick it up a bit with only 9:23 in 2nd just as I tweeted that it happened just off the faceoff a shot on net and Trevor Smith chips in the rebound. Then shortly after Minella comes in on Niklas Svedberg almost getting the Pens second of the game but is denied.
Third period gets going with some great hits WBS gets called for too many men Riley Holzapfel serves it as the WBS penalty kill takes the ice Megna gets a short handed breakaway but gets bumped off the play.
WBS brought the pressure later in the third period throwing everything but the kitchen sink at Niklas Svedberg but se how he came up with the saves. Regulation would end still tied 1-1 SOG were WBS 33 Providence 21.
OT started with WBS looking to put this game behind them and put an X in the win column , but the Bruins had a different idea. After intercepting a clearing bid the Bruins came in and beat Thiessen scoring the OT goal and taking game three Carter Camper gets credit for the game-winner :31 into overtime.
The WBS Penguins now hang on the edge needing to win every game left in this series to continue, not that it can’t happen it’s just a tall order.
