Penguins Postgame: The Goalies, the Loss, and Playoff Scenarios



The Pittsburgh Penguins played with energy and heart. However, they also showed their bad habits and provided what they called easy offense to the Boston Bruins. The Penguins never quit but never caught the Bruins after spotting two goals in 14 seconds midway through the second period.

Boston beat the Penguins 6-4 Saturday at PPG Paints Arena.

Penguins coach Mike Sullivan pulled goalie Alex Nedeljkovic later in the second period, and Tristan Jarry saw his first game action in 12 games.

In the Penguins postgame video, PHN’s Dan Kingerski went through the game, the “inspired’ performances, and the mistakes. We got into the playoff scenarios (3:10) following the loss, the goaltending controversy (4:56), and Nedeljkovic’s surprising willingness to face the media following the game. In the Q&A, readers asked if the playoffs are more likely next year (6:32), who Dan would have started in goal (7:41), rumors of friction and Dan’s preferred questions in the locker room (9:20), when will the Penguins make the playoffs again (12:45), and where is Reilly Smith and the middle six wingers (14:38)?

From the arena floor for perhaps the next to the last time. Join Kingerski. Like and comment.
