From Penguins Snapshots
Thoughts, musings and observations from the Penguins’ 4-1 win over the Avalanche at the Pepsi Center.
This wasn’t the Pens’ best effort, especially early. The Avs nearly scored on the first shift of the game off a turnover – Nathan MacKinnon hit the post – and continued to press, creating chance after chance. Fortunately, Matt Murray was up to the challenge. He was locked in from the beginning and made clutch, timely saves throughout the game to keep his team in it. He looked poised and sharp turning aside each quality chance, particularly a breakaway from MacKinnon.
Overall, as head coach Mike Sullivan said, “I don’t think it was one of our better games as of late. Certainly we’re happy with the result, but that’s probably where it ends.” Sullivan felt like his team played loose and needed to be better with their commitment to playing away from the puck, and I agree.
