Red Wings 2, Penguins 0

Tonight the Penguins ran into a superior team.

The Pens had their chances, but they were few and far between. They only managed 13 shots, including only one shot on goal in the second period. To make matters worse, when they did get a quality scoring chance, they just couldn't convert. To that end, it wouldn't matter who they were - if you don't convert your chances against a team like the Wings, you're not going to have a chance to win.

Marc-Andre Fleury played another great game, and the Pens did a great job of staying out of the box, as well as killing the penalties when they had to.

Unfortunately, they couldn't score on the power play themselves, which relates back to the aforementioned chances (and their lack of conversion of said chances).

Speaking of chances, the Pens will get another one, but not until Thursday night in New York against the Rangers.

Between now and then (hopefully Sunday) I'll get some of my pics from the opener up here on the blog.
