Penguins

-Despite blowing a 4-0 second period lead, the Pens were able to scratch out a 5-4 victory in a shootout last night over the Red Wings in Detroit. Pascal Dupuis had two goals, in addition to goals from Tyler Kennedy and Chris Kunitz. James Neal had the lone shootout goal that was the difference.

Pirates

The Pirates fell 4-1 to the Minnesota Twins in Bradenton yesterday. Paul Maholm pitched six so-so innings, giving up just two runs, yet allowing nine hits. He hasn’t had the best spring, and I have my doubts about his ability to anchor the rotation.
