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]
