Pens at Isles, a 5-3 win
Something good: Not Quitting. Seems like I might have cited this earlier in the year. Down 3-0 and playing worse than that indicated (if that's possible), it would have been easy to call it a night and think "it' just one of those games where things don't go our way." They kept after it and got a late goal from an unlikely source. That woke the sleeping giant and they dominated the third period.
Where they need improvement: Consistency. The Pens are to be commended for their ability to comeback in games. However, as the level of competition increases, those comebacks become harder and harder to pull off. The work ethic, hustle, and desperation that allows those comebacks to be possible must be brought from the opening face-off.
Something good: Sid and Geno. I've long been thrilled that we as Pens fans get to watch these two on a nightly basis. The third period of this game was a prime example of why.
