The Pittsburgh Penguins lost to the New York Rangers Tuesday night by the score of 4-3. With the way that they played, they are lucky it was that close.
After the scrappy win in Montreal last Saturday, one expected a better effort from the team. Unfortunately there was a lot of sloppy play, bad penalties and hesitance on the power play.
With that loss, the Penguins lost an emotional battle with what figures to be a main rival for the division crown. Maybe it was a case of looking ahead on the schedule.
The Penguins now head in to Washington, DC to face the Capitals. Take a look at the slides for some of the main topics for the game.
