The thing that concerns me with the Pens is they have only scored 5 goals in the last 3 games.
They've played two of the best defensive teams in that span while the PP has cooled down. This is after the offense had games of five, six, seven, four goals... can't live and die by each game.
Therrien's post-game presser, he called out the PP. He said every chance can't be tic-tac-toe. They have to start working. They've been outworked by every PK unit of late. He said they're losing battles and not getting the ugly goals.
Wow, you mean the reason the PP is struggling might be that the players aren't executing? I thought it all could be blamed on Yeo?
I hated the way the Pens played today. They were trying to be too fancy and it wasn't working. They finally started to dump and chase in the third and what would you know, they started to sustain pressure and get chances. They have to adjust the way they play against these defensive teams. They could have taken the game over when Luongo went down but they stopped dictating the play. I've also seen enough of these Western trapping teams that want to play 2-1 games every night.
