Bylsma Wants The Penguins To Play Playoff Hockey

from Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

Coach Dan Bylsma on Thursday had no injury updates or lineup changes following the Penguins' 4-3 overtime loss to Columbus the previous night.

He offered plenty of other material, however.

Bylsma said goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury “should have stayed in the net” on Brandon Dubinsky's tying goal late in regulation.

Most revealing, though, was that Bylsma questioned his team's effort after it blew a three-goal lead to the Blue Jackets, tying the series at two games apiece.

“The work and compete and the battle level has probably been the most troubling thing,” Bylsma said. “In Game 3, after getting down two goals for 50 or 55 minutes of that game, it wasn't perfect, but we were the desperate team. We took the game to them.”

Of his team's compete level, Bylsma said, “It has to be raised. It has to be back up to a level that is necessary this time of year and (with) this type of hockey — playoff hockey.”
