Pittsburgh Penguins: Bounceback or Fall Flat Against Florida Panthers?

November 19th, 2011 by Ernest Hindman Leave a reply »
The Pittsburgh Penguins are coming off what may be their worst performance of the season. That dark spot was a 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.

For all the hub-bub about the passive 1-3-1 that the 'Ning play, one fact seems to be lost. When it is working at its best, it can completely shut a team down.

I am no fan of a passive forecheck, but it seems to be the best bet against an attack team like the Penguins. Combine this with the Penguins failure to execute on any level and you have an utter embarrassment of a game.

Luckily, it only counts as one game in the standing and we can move on. The Penguins close out the Dad's road trip tonight against the Florida Panthers.

All the fun in the Florida sun will be moot if they cannot get at least two points out of the game tonight. Go to the slides and check out some things to watch.
