Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Brad Thiessen won the first game of his NHL career as the Pens topped the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-2.

The 25-year-old netminder stopped 22 out of 24 shots in his only NHL-level appearance. He was called up for insurance purposes so it's unlikely that he'll make a big impact (although he might get another start or two after the victory).
