Pittsburgh Penguins: 6 Things to Watch Against the Edmonton Oilers

The Penguins beat the Calgary Flames 5-3 in their second game of the season. Once again there were ups and downs that may point to some potential trends.

Once again the Penguins were flimsy with the lead, allowing the Flames to creep back into the game. It does not make to overreact since they got the two points again, but it would certainly be a concern if this lingers against their Easter Conference competition.

Another troubling area was the goal that Marc-Andre Fleury let in when he whiffed on a puck behind the net. This goal was not as bad as the goal-line sleeper in Vancouver, but the difference that a free goal makes for the opponent is evident. This continues to be the difference between closing teams out and allowing them to hang around.

On the positive side, the team is 2-0 on the road trip. They will look to make it a perfect 3-0 in the Canadian West against the Edmonton Oilers.
