Same Mistakes Will Once Again Doom The Pittsburgh Penguins
The Penguins squandered away another game Friday night against the New York Islanders. Pittsburgh had 3-2 lead 16 seconds after the Islanders tied the game at 2-2. Just 53 seconds later, the Penguins allowed the Islanders to tie the game once again because of failure to clear the puck out of their own end. Rookie Goaltender Jeff Zatkoff is now 0-2 and let a couple of soft goals get by in the Pens defeat at the hand of the Islanders. Pittsburgh's other kyrptonite continues to be poor production on the man advantage. In the past two games the Penguins have gone 0 for 13 on the Powerplay, and with the star caliber players Pittsburgh has, their is no excuse for it!
Pittsburgh's lack of production on the Powerplay and poor efforts to clear the puck out of their own end will only result in the same disappointment despite the high expectations. If history repeats itself, the Penguins may need a change. Whether it is a coaching change, new approach in their game, or finding a tough stay at home defenseman by the trade deadline, Pittsburgh needs to make a change, and fast, or else!
