‘It Sucks’: Penguins Deal with Emotions of Failure (+)



Pittsburgh Penguins, Sidney Crosby

ELMONT, NY — The hockey gods toyed with the Pittsburgh Penguins’ emotions until the very end. For the Penguins to return to the postseason, they neededfd the Detroit Red Wings and Washington Capitals to lose.

With everything hanging in the balance, tension built as Detroit scored a goal with three seconds remaining to tie their game against the Montreal Canadiens. Then, moments later, Washington won in the final minutes after the Philadelphia Flyers pulled the goalie, needing a regulation win.

The Penguins watched two hockey games, and neither was decided until the very end. The Capitals victory meant the Penguins’ season would unequivocally stop Wednesday night against the New York Islanders

It must have felt like missing the lottery by the last number. And yet they also fought back against the obvious melancholy.
