So what happened?
Short recap this time, because I'm late with this and it was a frustrating weekend of hockey watching the Pens.
If the Pens keep out shooting the opposition like they have been, they're going to win their share of games. Having said that, they have to button down the special teams. They cannot continue to give up short-handed goals, and they can't allow key goals on the penalty kill.
Brodeur was the difference in this game, no doubt. He was very good and the Pens simply couldn't beat him. When you fire 42 shots, you expect to manage more than one goal.
What's their record now?
The Pens are 21-15-4.
The last game of the first half of the season is Tuesday night against the Senators in Pittsburgh.
