Not exactly "balanced" scoring, but refreshing to see the likes of Keith Ballard (1g, 1a), Nick Boynton (1g, 1a), and Kamil Kreps light it up.

Less refreshing - downright rotten, in fact - was Stephen Weiss and Richard Zednik firing blanks in the shootout, while Evgeny Malkin and Kris Letang found the net to seal the deal on a staggeringly important come-from-behind 4-3 victory.

Tomas Vokoun was en fuego, facing 50 shots, many of the slap-your-cheeks eye-popping variety. The Cats finished with 21.

Yes, twenty-one. But don't be misled: Florida played the classic DeBoer attack-from-every-angle game; another playoff-style match which any hockey fan - no matter their loyalties - would have eaten up.

Kudos to the Pens and a brilliant streak under new coach Dan Bylsma.

And a big shout-out to FrankD, Hooks Orpik, and their minions at Pensburgh for putting up with my inane observations during his live blog.
