Lost in the Wild

by: The PensNation Staff

Penguins AT Wild
3   4

The Penguins went into Minnesota and didn't appear to lose a step from the previous game jumping out to an early 1-goal lead just 4 minutes in, but all was not had as the Wild resiliently bounced back on several occasions. After the Penguins took a 2-1 lead 1 minute into the second Martin Havlat whom has been a ghost in the wild lineup for the better part of this season thus far tied things up at 2 a piece. The Wild would go onto add another in the second before Sidney Crosby came to the rescue with his second goal of the night to tie it at 3, but all was lost when Latendresse netted the games final goal 6 minutes into the third followed by a 5 minute Wild power play as result of a stupid move on Gonchar's part to gain retaliation for a hit in the neutral zone.
