Photo Gallery: Ice Caps @ Penguins (5/8/12)

The Penguins stayed alive in the best-of-seven series and forced a Game Six on Friday in St. John’s.  For the third straight game teams were forced to settle the outcome in overtime. The Ice Caps took the first two overtime games to go up 3-1 in the series. Third time is the charm for the Penguins as Simon Despres scored late into the double overtime period getting the puck past Eddie Pasquale. The game didn’t start well for the Penguins as a simple dump in was misplaced by Brad Thiessen hopped over his stick and through his legs and into the back of the net.  Alex Grant scored near the end of the period to tie it at one.  Paul Thompson scored a go-ahead goal in the second.  The Ice Caps tied the score again under a minute later on a power play goal.  Thiessen was replaced with 6:20 left in the third when he was cut by a stick, but he returned once the overtime session started.
