Penguins Postgame: OT Win, Jarry’s Performance, & Zucker’s Future
The Pittsburgh Penguins won a game against a top team in the Metro Division, just their second this season. They beat the New York Rangers 3-2 in overtime; it was a playoff-style game that included moves, countermoves, scrums, punches, and big-time goals.
Dan Kingerski takes reader comments and questions after the game from PPG Paints Arena. Kingerski started with Tristan Jarry’s performance. Then, in order, what the Penguins’ lines might look like after the team gets fully healthy, Nick Bonino’s status, and if the Penguins can afford Jason Zucker this summer.
Zucker scored his 24th goal of the season and was a central figure in both the Penguins’ puck possession and the Penguins’ physical response as things got chippy … and chippier in the third period.
If you pay close attention, you also got some extra hockey as two youth teams did battle behind Dan.
