Headline! Read all about it! Pens play better but still lose! Headline!
You've seen this headline before?
How many times?
Really? THAT many?
Yeah, I guess it's been used at least a dozen times this year, if not more. The story seems to be the same... the Pens play a good game, but make a few critical mistakes. The shortie they allowed last night was bad, but you can't really get very upset with Crosby, even though he made the pass that was intercepted. The team also took way too many penalties again. This is becoming a fairly consistent event. Some of it I'm willing to attribute to the players being young... but some accountability is needed too.
Anyway, it doesn't get any easier tonight - the Senators are coming to Pittsburgh. The Pens will need to find some offense. Preview up later today.
