Penguins end Panthers winning streak with 3-2 overtime decision

Cats blow two-goal lead in third, fall on Letang's extra session one-timer For the first 54:56 of the game, the Florida Panthers seemed well on their way to a six straight victory, but the Pittsburgh Penguins rallied with two late goals before Kris Letang rifled home a one-timer, off a Sidney Crosby saucer pass, 1:27 into overtime to give the Pens a 3-2 win.

Jussi Jokinen notched his 10th of the season, with Florida on its fourth...

2016 All Star Game Recap: John Scott MVP, Gaudreau and Giordano notch key goals

It was a fun-filled fight to the million dollar prize as John Scott added an exciting element to the All Star game that's been missing for years. The All Star Game, hosts by Nashville, had a new set up this year. Three periods of hockey, 20 minutes each, and each period consisted of two conferences fighting for a spot in the final 20 minute game, where the winner would take the million dollar prize. The first 20 minutes was the Metropolitan team against the Atlantic team. Kris Letang opened the scoring to put Metro up 1-0. Erik Karlsson tied it up soon after. Evgeny Kuznetsov (Alex...

Tarasenko picks up a couple of assists, but the Pacific rules the day. Atlantic Division Vs. Metropolitan Division: The Eastern Conference would take the stage first in the 3 on 3 tournament.

John Scott scores twice, hits, fights, roasts JR, steals show, wins All-Star MVP

It's John Scott's world, and we're all living in it. Let's recap the best All-Star Game in quite a while. Game 1: Atlantic 4, Metropolitan 3 It took just one minute for the Metro to get on the board, when Kris Letang sniped a goal past Roberto Luongo. But the scoring came at a slower pace than expected, as the goaltending was quite exceptional for a 3-on-3 game, with the most memorable save coming from Luongo stopping this blistering shot by Evgeni Malkin. Each team had 22 shots on the game, meaning there were chances aplenty in this game, and the score was within one goal the entire 20...
