The 3rd period between these two teams did not disappoint. It began with the game tied at 2-2 going into the last period of play in standard regulation. A lot of the play at the beginning of the 3rd was dictated by the defense of both teams. This is also the way that the majority of the series has been between these two opponents. The first goal of the 3rd period was scored about 7minutes into the period by Jersey’s Zach Parise. I think everyone at home and in that stadium watching knew that goal was not going to be enough to win this hockey game. Less than 5 minutes later Danny Breire once again tied it up and we are forced to go to overtime. In the final 3 minutes of the overtime period former Penguins, Alex Ponikarovsky scored the game winner (go figure). Like I said Philly, maybe you should let the other team score first.
