It’s the postgame wrap in five minutes. Pittsburgh Hockey Now Editor-in-Chief Dan Kingerski dropped the hammer on a few players who are not seizing their opportunities as he analyzed the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-4 shootout loss to the Minnesota Wild.
Alternately, a few players earned praise, including Jason Zucker. Kingerski called him an “animal” on the forecheck. Obviously, Kasperi Kapanen and his hat trick earned praise. Dan talked about Kapanen’s spark early in the game the flood that followed.
Dan also didn’t spare the criticism for the Penguins power play which is sinking to the bottom of the league. Overall, there were a few high spots for the team but too many low spots as the Penguins got a point, but should have had two.
