Gonchar gives Penguins 2-0 lead

Sarge stroked it.
Sergei Gonchar scored his second playoff goal, taking a feed from Brooks Orpik and firing a slap shot from the right point past Jaroslav Halak to give the Penguins a 2-0 lead over the Montreal Canadiens at 9:50 of the second period of Game 5 of their Eastern Conference semifinal at Mellon Arena.
It marked the first-ever NHL playoff point for Mark Letestu, who got the secondary assist. It was the sixth even-strength goal for the Penguins in this series, although two came on empty-netters.
