The Penguins beat the Red Wings by a score of 4 to 1 last night at Consol Energy Center

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Penguins came out flying, took an early lead and never looked back.

In terms of possession, the 3rd period seemed to skew the data when the Red Wings decided to start playing.

When the Red Wings started the 3rd period, they took control of possession and at one point lead the shots in the period 6-0, i believe.

Limited ice time for Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin in the 3rd with a back-to-back and travel to Ottawa, combined with the Red Wings waking up probably didn't help an already struggling Brandon Sutter and his line.

Hopefully Christian Ehrhoff will be back soon and Robert Bortuzzo can be scratched and make milkshakes.

Penguins vs. Senators tonight in Ottawa. 7:30 ET.
