The Pens woke up in Game 2, winning 3-2 in overtime on a Sidney Crosby playoff overtime goal. It helped that the lines were shuffled, allowing Crosby and Yvgeni Malkin to play together at times. Tampa Bay has some issues in net as Andre Vasilevskiy will probably go if Ben Bishop (leg) is still not ready.
