Penguins Postgame Locker Room Sullen, ‘Discouraged’ After Latest Loss (+)



Pittsburgh Penguins, Bryan Rust

SEATTLE — The Pittsburgh Penguins lost their fourth straight game and completed a four-game western trip with just four goals in their last 11 periods. Overall, the Penguins were outscored 18-6 in four losses to Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, and the Seattle Kraken.

After the 5-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Friday, the Penguins’ locker room cleared out. Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin were left to answer questions.

Saturday, a handful of players sat quietly in their locker stall, still wearing much of their equipment, staring straight ahead. Expressionless. The sullen room was born of players who assumed they were a better team than they’d been able to show.

Players who don’t necessarily understand why they’ve scored only three goals in three games and have as many wins as losses in the first nine games of the season.
