Video: Penguins’ Kunitz, Rangers’ Hagelin trade second-period goals

Dec 18, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

There wasn’t much give between the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers through two periods of Wednesday’s Rivalry Night game.

The two teams began the third deadlocked at one goal apiece. Chris Kunitz opened the scoring on the power play, putting home his 18th goal of the season. Sidney Crosby added an assist on the goal, which increases his lead over Patrick Kane atop the league in total points by two.

Carl Hagelin answered back for the Rangers just less than three minutes after Kunitz gave Pittsburgh the lead. Hagelin, using his speed, drove past the Penguins’ defenseman, then beat Marc-Andre Fleury with a move to the backhand.

    These guys are so bad they should apply for officiating jobs in the NFL.

      I agree.

      Horrible non-call on Crosby (gasp!) when he shot a Rangers player’s stick out of the zone on the first PP goal. He literately shot the stick 30 feet out of the zone while the player, Stralman I think, was trying to retrieve it.

      Also another great non-call on the slash that led to the 2nd Penguins goal.

      2 gifts from the refs to the golden boys.

        While you’re at it, don’t forget the trip of Dupuis at center ice just before Zuccarello’s goal. Did you see it? Nah. Didn’t think you did…

        Nice game Wilkes Barre Pens!
