Washington took the first game of its series against Pittsburgh tonight on an overtime wrap-around goal by T.J. Oshie that capped a hat trick but needed video review in order to be verified.
Kris Letang is clearly excited for Game of Thrones to come back this weekend, because he used his hockey stick like a goddamn battle ax here and went straight for the jugular. The Penguins beat the Rangers 3-1 on goals and 1-0 on attempted decapitations.
Even if he never plays again, there may not be a better feel-good story in these playoffs than Jeff Zatkoff, a third-string goalie thrust into action by injury, who responded with a confident, capable start that, backed by a Patric Hornqvist hat trick, gave the Penguins about as strong a 1-0 series lead as they could…

Heading into last night, the Penguins were a respectable 10-7-0, but they weren’t scoring. Marc-Andre Fleury has been amazing, but the offense—headed by two of the best players in the world in Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, and bolstered by the offseason addition of Phil Kessel—had been bloodless. Just 2.06 goals…
The Lakers Bros are the centerpiece in the Hall of Sports Bros, but these Penguins bros deserve a spot somewhere. These guys wigged out after witnessing a hit right in front of their frickin’ seats. Hockey’s wild, man.
