Game 5 didn't go according to plan for the Pittsburgh Penguins. They tried to take an unfamiliar route home and got shaken down by a hungrier and more determined New York Rangers team. They were outshot 17-9 in the first period and trailed 2-0 after the first 20 minutes.

The game ended and the Blueshirts celebrated a well-deserved victory. They were just more emotionally charged and desperate than Pittsburgh, and not without reason. There are a few things the Penguins need to do and can do in Game 6 to put the pesky Rangers away though.
