Insider Only Game 1 Featured Player: Mark Eaton leads the way with 8 blocked shots

The Penguins shutout the New York Islanders 5-0 in Game 1 to take a 1-0 series, and the Penguins were excellent at getting in front of pucks and not letting the Islanders get the middle of the ice. Defenseman Mark Eaton was a big part of it, leading the Penguins with 8 blocked shots in the win. Eaton logged 19:00 minutes even, collecting an assist, +2 rating, and 8 blocked shots. Eaton was second on the team with 3:44 of ice time shorthanded as the Penguins went 4-4 on the PK. “Lot of guys put their bodies on the line,” winger Pascal Dupuis said of the Penguins blocking 22 shots.
