Sharpshooter Evgeni Malkin froze Tim Thomas by faking a forehand, then quickly whistled the puck past the Bruins goalie to help the Penguins earn a 2-1 shootout win last night. A shot-by-shot breakdown of the shootout (bold type indicates goal scored).

HOW IT WORKS: Each team chooses three shooters. If the score is still tied after the three shots per team, the teams alternate additional shooters until one scores and the other does not. All skaters must participate before a player can shoot a second time.
