The Inconsistent Pittsburgh Penguins

from Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

We’re 58 games into their season and they have nearly lost as many as they have won. I have no idea what to think about them or expect from them. I think they are good enough to win the Stanley Cup, but I’m not sure they’re good enough to make the playoffs. At this point, I won’t be surprised if either happens.

It was more of the same Saturday afternoon Uptown at PPG Paints Arena.

After beating the Philadelphia Flyers and Edmonton Oilers fairly easily earlier in the week for a modest two-game winning streak that led us to believe more wins would be ahead, the Penguins stepped up in class and were outclassed for much of the day by the loaded Calgary Flames in a 5-4 loss.

A 5-2 deficit after two periods produced a too-little, too-late finish.

So much for that winning streak.

The Penguins’ inconsistency is maddening.
