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

Even though the Penguins dominated their last game against the Ottawa Senators and even got an OT point, they still came away with the 2-1 loss. There were positives to take away from the game, however. One of them being the defensive pairing of Jack Johnson (oh, yes) and Marcus Pettersson. [Trib Live]

All it took was a little tweak to Kris Letang’s game for the defenseman to change his game for the better. [Post-Gazette]
