Join Pittsburgh Hockey Now editor-in-chief Dan Kingerski for PHN’s live postgame chat as he analyzes the Penguins 4-1 loss to the high-powered Toronto Maple Leafs at Scotiabank Arena.
The Penguins lost 30 pucks, with a whopping 19 turnovers and 11 Toronto takeaways. Those lost pucks created a cavalcade of unmissable scoring chances. Penguins goalie Tristan Jarry did well to keep the score only 4-1.
Jarry stopped 25 of 29. His counterpart Jack Campbell was very good, too. Campbell had to make a lot of saves, but the Penguins didn’t make his life too difficult, either. Campbell stopped 45 of 46 shots.
The Pittsburgh Penguins top line with Sidney Crosby had an uncharacteristically quiet night. Evgeni Malkin’s line was the best. Dan will note that Jeff Carter was perhaps the best Pittsburgh Penguins forward. He had five shots on goal and Malkin finished Carter’s strong individual effort for the lone Penguins goal.
