Watch: What Sidney Crosby and Mike Sullivan Said After Loss to Oilers (+)



Pittsburgh Penguins, Sidney Crosby

EDMONTON, Alberta — The Pittsburgh Penguins were not very good on Monday night. The Edmonton Oilers blitzed them for 47 shots and six goals, despite a 3-1 Penguins lead in the second period.

Edmonton beat the Penguins 6-3 at Rogers Place, and the quiet locker room emptied quickly. Here’s what Sidney Crosby, Tristan Jarry, and Mike Sullivan said.

Coach Mike Sullivan was not thrilled with the performance and specifically chastised the Penguins’ puck management.

Sidney Crosby, who scored his fourth goal of the season, blamed soft play; the Penguins gave Edmonton time and space.

Tristan Jarry admitted the Penguins needed to “grab ahold” of the second period as things went sideways but failed to do so. Jarry stopped 41 of 47 shots.

The Penguins’ loss could have been a lot worse.

It is refreshing to hear straight up candor from players and coaches. They don’t minimize failures or excuse them. The fact is all three veteran players were guilty of horrible puck Mgmt & bad decision making. When 58, 87, & 71 are blowing it big, it is difficult to modify your team play. Last night was exactly a rewind of past habitual bad play & you can’t get away with sloppy play against good teams. They got crushed like a bug.
