Pens Fall to the Sabres!

The Pens looked a tired tonight and didn't have much jump in their step. Sabres got the early lead and the Pens never were able to take get the lead for the rest of the game. Geno and Duper had a bit of jump in their step throughout the game. Orpik didn't come back after the first period and was ruled out for the rest of the game with a lower body injury. This put much more pressure on the Pens defense, which contributed to the Pens not being able to get ahead and tiredness. The Pens are still three points behind the Blackhawks for the Presidents' Trophy. A lost now and then is good for the Pens, keeps them humbled and focused.
