Pens Points: Down, But Not Out

New, comments

There’s a recap of last night’s game, the Penguins need to be more than just a one-line team, and many players voiced their frustration with one specific Capital. All that and more in today’s Pens Points!

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Washington Capitals at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

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

The Penguins returned home to host the Washington Capitals for Game 3 of their second round series. To put it mildly, the game most notably featured another dirty Tom Wilson hit, one that saw him shatter Zach Aston-Reese’s jaw and concuss him as well. The Penguins also blew a third period lead and gave up the game-winning goal with 67 seconds left in regulation to go down 2-1 in the series. Happy Wednesday. [Recap]
