Iron Man just pumped life back into the Igloo.
Jordan Staal kept the play alive in the Penguins’ end by digging a puck out of the back boards, then redirected an Alexei Ponikarovsky shot from center point to score his third playoff goal and make it 4-2 at 16:30 of the second.
Staal has been playing like a man possessed, which he just might be after missing only two games before returning from severed tendon in his right toe. Mellon Arena went wild after he scored.
And the place went nuts went the Jumbotron showed Evgeni Malkin’s father, Vladimir, wildly waving a rally towel with 2:13 remaining.
