Penguins Postgame: Backstory to Loss; Now the Trade Deadline (+)



EDMONTON, Alberta — The Pittsburgh Penguins were no match for themselves or the Edmonton Oilers Sunday night. Edmonton steamrolled the Penguins 6-1 at Rogers Place, marking both the beginning and end of multiple Penguins storylines.

The Penguins locker room must continue to believe they are in the playoff chase. President of hockey operations/GM Kyle Dubas is now out of time and has been given no reason to believe they are in it.

Coach Mike Sullivan admitted didn’t have a lot to say to the team, there wasn’t much he could say.

“We’ll try to get some rest. We’ll fly home, and we’ll address tomorrow when it comes,” Sullivan said. “Obviously. We’re in a fight. We’re in a fight for the playoffs. You know, with every missed opportunity. The runway gets shorter and gets stacked against us a little bit more.”

From the arena floor in Edmonton, Dan Kingerski gives the back story to the Penguins flat effort (0:00-1:38), as well as begins the discussion on whom Dubas could put on the NHL trade block.
