Pens at Hurricanes, a 2-1 loss

Something good: Brian Dumoulin was noticeable. He scored the Pens' only goal and directly prevented another, getting a stick on a Jordan Staal shot that was ticketed for an empty net.

Where they need improvement: Another bad start. They got outshot 26-14 over the first 40 minutes and were lucky to only be down a goal.

Something good: Per, Ian Cole (56.25) and Jamie Oleksiak (58.62) were the only Pens to play 14+ minutes and come out with positive possession numbers. On a night where the team was crushed in that regard (CAR had 57.58% of even-strength shot attempts), that's impressive.
