N/A          
Called up from the Phoenix Roadrunners, Randy Exelby gets his NHL start after playing just 3 minutes last season for Montreal
Bill Ranford gets his first night off since December 16th.  Exelby was shaky early, but seemed to compose himself
Mario Lemieux gets 2 goals and an assist, including the eventual game-winner in the third period.  
Suddenly, Mario Lemieux finds himself 3rd in the points race behind Oates and Gretzky.  Lemieux has 77 points.
The Penguins have won 4 of 5 games, pulling within 2 points of climbing out of the Patrick Division cellar.  Edmonton is tied for 4th in the Smythe.
