What? The Penguins have done a complete 360. The Penguins went from an amazing 15 game winning streak to getting blown out not once, but twice. The sad part is that this happened on back-to-back nights.
TUE, APR 2: SABRES 4 PENGUINS 1
WED, APR 3: RANGERS 6 PENGUINS 1
The second half of the Penguins home-and-home series against the Rangers will resume on Friday, April 5. My suggestion is for the Penguins to stop worrying about Morrow, Murray, and Iginla, and start focusing on the goal tending and scoring. We have given up an average of 5 goals in the last two games, while only scoring a dismal one goal in each contest. We need to get it together and fast because momentum means everything. Who cares if we have all these superstars on the ice if we cannot score and lose in the playoffs. Heck, the Yankees have the highest payroll in Major League Baseball, and they cannot buy a win; therefore, superstars alone do not guarantee victories.
The Penguins need to settle down and get back to basic fundamentals. For starters, we can stop giving the puck away in the oppositions lead. This only leads to breakaway scoring chances. Since the Rangers kicked their tail tonight, the Penguins smell blood at Consol Energy.
