There were 3 games on Saturday as the first round series of the 2009 NHL playoffs chugged along. Former Islanders aided their teams in only 1 of those trio of games. Here is a quick look:
Pittsburgh winger Ruslan Fedotenko scored the first of 5 unanswered Penguins' goals as the Pens rallied from a 3-0 deficit early in the 2nd Period to stun the host Philadelphia Flyers 5-3 to wrap up the series with a 4-2 record. A ill-advised fight started by Flyers aggressor Daniel Carcillo was the catalyst that drove the Pens comeback. Fedo also added an assist and received the 2nd star honor. The Tank had 1 goal and 2 assists for 3 points on 6 games. In his 59th playoff game Fedotenko notched his 19th and 20th postseason points. He has 14 goals and 6 assists over that span. Pens winger Bill Guerin received the primary assist on his team's 3rd goal. Billy G snapped a 3 game point-less streak and finished the series with 2 goals and 1 assists fr 3 points including 1 game winning tally.
