PHN 5-Minute Postgame: Penguins Mistakes Erase Effort in Bruins Loss



A 5-2 second-period lead was not safe. Nor was a 5-3 third-period lead. The Penguins did enough good things to score five goals and have control of the game, but their shortcomings gifted the Boston Bruins a 6-5 OT win Tuesday at PPG Paints Arena.

PHN’s Dan Kingerski gives the good and bad, what they did right and wrong. The Penguin’s fourth liners had a couple of goals. Brock McGinn had two assists.

The Penguins’ top line of Sidney Crosby, Jake Guentzel, and Bryan Rust also scored a pair of goals.

And they gave up one goal, and the wingers were on the ice for the game-tying goal in the final minutes.

“We’ve got to do a better job,” Sidney Crosby said. “We finally got a lead, and, you know, we didn’t do your job well.”
