The surprisingly good Carolina Hurricanes marched into Pittsburgh Monday night ready for a fight and a fight they did receive. The Penguins edged the 'Canes 3-2 to grab a 1-0 series lead. One of the numerous Former Islanders on Pitt stood out. Here is a look:
Winger Miroslav Satan scored the opening goal just 9 minutes into regulation, his first playoff goal in over 2 years, to help lead the charge. Struggling to make the roster each playoff game, Satan earned a little more credibility with the score. The last time Satan scored a playoff goal was on April 20, 2007 when the Isles fell in 5 games to the Buffalo Sabres. The netter snapped a 7 game playoff goal-less streak as the Czech national now has 5 points (1 goal, 4 assists) on 8 games.
