Pens Points: Losing Left and Right

Over the weekend, the Pens played a back-to-back set, losing both in overtime, they managed to lose another defenseman, and all of the players lost their scholarships to acting school. This, and much more in today's Pens Points.

Here are your Pens Points for this Monday morning...

It all started on Friday. In what can very well be considered a snoozefest, the Pens lost a 1-0 game in overtime to the Kings. Getting any points without the team's best defenseman is always a plus, but it didn't end there. The very next night, the Penguins would receive the exact same result, albeit in a faster-paced game, losing 2-1 in overtime to the Leafs.

In Friday's game, the Pens managed to lose another D-man in Trevor Daley. Daley is considered 'week-to-week.' The Pens subsequently recalled Chad Ruhwedel from WB/S. [Penguins]
