Despite their disparate seedings, the first place Penguins and fourth place Rams proved yesterday that the regular season doesn’t mean much. The Rams took a 1-0 lead in the first on a shorthanded goal by Bake to break the ice. That was followed by a goal in the second by Shoup to go up 2-0. Skinny Cleary got the Penguins back within one but the Rams stifled the rest of the Penguins attack. Bake got the empty netter.
Game 2 is Wednesday at 10.
