The Pittsburgh Penguins are still looking for a way to contain leftwinger Michael Cammalleri. Cammalleri scored two goals Saturday night in Pittsburgh giving him a total of nine the last eight times he’s played against them. Shedding what was supposed to be some intensive checking attention, Cammalleri has taken an average of nearly five shots per game over the eight games. Saturday Cammalleri took eight shots at Marc-Andre Fleury, four of them on goal.

It was like there was a Game-8 in last spring’s Canadiens/Penguins playoff series. In a game that took on the aspects of a war at times, the Canadiens scored two goals in the span of 25 seconds late in the third period to beat the Penguins 3-2 in a game that featured all of the intensity of a Stanley Cup game. Michael Cammalleri was given credit for the tieing goal with 2:12 remaining and twenty-five seconds later Scott Gomez scored what turned out to be the game winner. Carey Price stopped 36 of 38 Pittsburgh shots.

The Canadiens, losers 3-2 in Toronto last night, will have Michael Cammalleri back after serving his one game suspension but defenseman Roman Hamrlik remains sidelined with his wonky knee. Andrei Markov is still three or four weeks away from his return to the lineup.
