Penguins Need More Luck

From Dmitry Chesnokov at Yahoo!‘s Puck Daddy:

Q. Sergei, can you compare tonight’s game with last night’s?

GONCHAR: In my opinion we did not play bad. Look at the statistics in the regular season and the playoffs. What other team managed to outshoot the Red Wings in a game? We did it yesterday and today. We constantly created scoring chances. It is a different matter that we did not convert. But this is Detroit. You also need luck in addition to playing well against them.

What in your opinion is the main reason for the loss? Just no luck? Or you couldn’t cope with the system Detroit was playing?

Not really, you can play against their system and win. The most important is to finish your chances with goals. It’s not enough just to create opportunities. But I will repeat myself, today they had a little bit more luck than us.

more from Sergei Gonchar plus a couple questions for Evgeni Malkin
