This day in Pens’ playoff history: Letang’s first playoff goal comes in overtime in 2009

Wins: Beat the Islanders 3-1 in Game 3 back in 1993, and as we’ll see below, took a 3-2 OT win at home against Washington.

Losses: Lost 4-2 in 2017 to the Capitals, and 3-2 in 2010 to Montreal. Both of these were Game 3’s and the Pens fell in a 2-1 hole after both. Also lost 5-4 back in 1995 to the Capitals in Game 1 of that year.


The game to highlight in today’s look back in Penguins’ playoff history takes us back to the magical year of 2009, which of course was the first Stanley Cup in the Sidney Crosby-era for the Pens.
