PHN Postgame: Depth Issues Evident in Defeat; Reaction & Analysis



For the first time in six home games, the Pittsburgh Penguins were unable to overturn a deficit, losing 3-1 to the Washington Capitals on Tuesday at PPG Paints Arena.

With help from Pittsburgh Sports Now’s Alan Saunders, Pittsburgh Postgame tackled the Penguins’ failure to respond to some poor luck early, and what that might mean about the team as currently constructed.

Is it time for Mike Sullivan to head to the line shuffler again? Does Tristan Jarry need to get a string of starts to prove himself? Who’s a bigger liability to the attack: Evgeni Malkin or Jason Zucker? What does the ‘D’ need to do to settle in?
