Pens lose again!

The Pens lost to the Jets 2-1 last night in Winnipeg. The Pens have now lost three games in a row! The Pens have had some tough losses. TK was sidelined due to having concession like symptoms and Geno was once again out of the lineup. The Pens need shooters and for more players to step up and shoot. The Jets scored eight  seconds into the game! The first period was horrible for the Pens, they started to pressure the Jets at the end. Engo got in a fight with Thorburn to get the team going. However, the Jets managed to score another goal in the first period. After that the Pens did much better, the pressured the Jets and got to their game. They just had trouble getting the puck to go into the net, they had great chances throughout the second and third period. The Pens were able to get a goal in the second. Z blew one pass Pavelec from the blue line (his first goal of the season). Flower was great in the net, he made some amazing saves that kept the Pens within winning. It wasn't enough, the Pens were not able to get the equalizer. On the bright side, the Pens PK is still perfect on the road and they had some good looks on the power play. The Pens really could of used the services of Sid and Geno, they need finisher like them and they might of won the game. Until then the Pens will just have to keep working hard and shoot the puck a lot.
