In the end it took eight rounds of shooters to get the job done—and we’re not talking about taking down your sister at the high-school reunion. After blowing an early 3-0 lead, the Montreal Canadiens beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 in a Saturday night shootout that was more like a Pee-Wee skills exhibition. I guess that’s how many shots it takes to end a game when you can’t hit the broad side of a barn—Montreal’s rookie goalie Carey Price only had to make three saves on eight shots! After 15 shooters couldn’t score on either side, Andrei Markov made a move and beat the Penguins’ Dany Sabourin five-hole with a backhander. Yay team.
