St Louis Blues @ Pittsburgh Penguins Game #3
A complete Penguins performance puts them on the cusp of taking the scalp of the top seed in the West and progress to the next round. While Hall was kept very busy off forty-seven Pittsburgh shots Binkley had it relatively easy, stopping all nineteen Blues efforts for the first shutout of the postseason.
Ubriaco (1) opened his playoff account with a game-winner just 2:42 into the game; Dea (2) and Stratton (2) making it 3-0 before the first intermission as Pittsburgh outshot their opponents twenty-one to eight. Another from Ubriaco (2) and Fonteyne (2) rounded out the scoring. The final period was all about Hall keeping the scoreline respectable by stopping another twelve shots, and Roberts tried to send a message to the Penguins' MacNeil with a fight as the Pens played another clean game without any minor penalties.
