Postgame: Bruins 3, Penguins 2 (OT)

I chose in my game story to take a closer look at the Penguins’ power play, which is generating chances but no goals. This is problematic for a couple reasons. One is that games are decided by goals, not chances. …

‘A pretty good first night’

The Penguins didn’t have their best night offensively during Saturday’s 4-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens at Consol Energy Center. One of their worst all season, I thought. Not many quality scoring chances at all. It would be hard to …

The Penguins need offense, preferably from their power play. They’ve scored 11 goals over their past six games. They haven’t scored more than four in a game during that stretch, which dates back to Dec. 15 against Tampa Bay. Yet, they …

More on Paul Martin’s return
