We are taking Andre Burakovsky out for ice cream after this; he did such a good job.
For his second goal in two games, our nephew Andre Burakovsky made a power move to the net and beat Flower to put the Pens in a two-goal hole. #twogoalhole

The play starts with a failed Pittsburgh breakout. TJ Oshie scouts the blue line and gets a piece of the clear. From there we find Andre Burakovsky at the faceoff dot. With a Springsteenian last-chance power drive, Burakovsky skates right into the near corner.
Marc-Andre Fleury almost has the whole pipe locked down. Almost.
Burra was pumped.
Burakovsky has two goals these playoffs, both coming in elimination games.
