There's really not much to say right now about the Pens. They're struggling. There's no doubt about that. I'm waiting for the Therrien meltdown, just like he did two years ago after he was first hired.
The penalty kill allowed four goals last night. They've now allowed six in two games. It has been an unexpected meltdown, even though they were weak on the PK away from home last year.
The only other thing to note was the nice play by Ryan Whitney on the Pens first goal. He drove to the net with the puck and fed a great cross-ice pass to Malkin to bang into an empty net. He was missed in the four games he was absent.
Next up: Monday at home against the Devils
