A Bit of Back-Firing

Well, that was a disappointing game in Pittsburgh.  Our "excellent" powerplay completely backfired last night, going 0 for 6, and also resulted in a couple horribly-covered Penguins goals.  For example, if Sidney Crosby is about to come out of the box, don't get the puck be cleared past your defense just in time for the superstar to get a clean breakaway.  Also, if you're on the powerplay, you shouldn't be allowing Max Talbot to get a short-handed wrap-around goal that would become the gamewinner.  That was a bad game to end the road trip, and it's not getting any easier when they go home to face the Blackhawks on Saturday.
