With just 6 days between us and opening night of the 2016/17 Penguins season, we are back with our 6th best moment from the Penguins magical 2015/16 season. Today we are gonna take you all the way back to the Eastern Conference Semi Finals. Game 4 to be exact. And on that night, this man pushed the Capitals to the brink of elimination.
After dropping game 1 to the Capitals, the Penguins took care of business in game 2, then held on in game 3 to take the 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference Semi Finals series against the Washington Capitals. The Penguins were without Kris Letang because of his bull shit suspension for Marcus Johansson diving like a twat. Olli Maatta didn't play either because he was still feeling the effects of the vicious attack of Brooks Orpik in game 2. Eric Fehr missed the game as well. So before the puck even dropped the Pens were in a tight spot. The Pens would fall behind early after Jay Beagle finally scraped himself off the then Consol Energy Center ice, stuffed his brain back in his head and somehow beat Matt Murray high to make it 1-0 Caps. Trevor Daley, who filled in admirably for Kris Letang, would tie the game at 1 a little over 9 minutes into the 1st. In the 2nd Matt Cullen would give the Pens a 2-1 lead after completely blowing by Nick Backstrom and picking up the loose puck and tucking it 5 hole on Braden Holtby. But nothing is ever easy with the Penguins and John Carlson, who actually took a break from insulting girls on the internet, (If you don't know the story go look it up) tied the game at 2. Nothing happened in the 3rd so the game would head into overtime. The Pens were in the Caps mouths from the opening faceoff of overtime. It took about two and a half minutes for the thing to happen.
1. LMAO at that stupid sack of shit Mike Weber. 2. LMAO at the Caps having Matt Niskanen and Mike Weber on the ice at the same time.
Some of us watched this game at Dave and Busters and shared an incredible moment together while scaring the piss out of some bartenders. The Caps would ultimately win game 5. But come back tomorrow for our 5th best moment and the amazing conclusion to this series.
