Penguins’ missed opportunities are starting to add up

They have left some very important points on the table. Let’s begin with this: The Pittsburgh Penguins are going to make the playoffs. Do not let the three-game losing streak, made even more frustrating in the manner in which the past two games were lost, send you into a panic about their spot in the postseason.

Throw out the recent game he was pulled at Matt Murray has faced the following shot totals in the last four games: 39, 38, 41, 41. Pittsburgh is one of the worst shot suppression teams in the league...
