Penguins Postgame: Readers Speak, Sharp Elbows for Karlsson, Malkin



RALEIGH, N.C. — The Pittsburgh Penguins salvaged a point. They were nearly skated out of the barn against the Carolina Hurricanes in the first period, but goalie Tristan Jarry kept them in the game.

The Penguins scored a pair of third period goals to force overtime before losing 3-2 at PNC Arena.

We took reader questions and addressed a few statements. Fans seemed to be split between praising the comeback and slamming the necessity for it.

We also get into the awful power play performance and the struggles of Erik Karlsson and Evgeni Malkin. The young players were not unscathed, either.

I think of particular interest, I also offered a hard look at the Penguins’ game–how they play Carolina and the system breakdowns. The Penguins get sucked into Carolina’s man-to-man system, but their mistakes are too great.

We get into all of it. And there’s a PHN+ coupon code at the end. Like and comment. I read them all.
