Video- Penguins Lose The Game And Trevor Daley

from Seth Rorabaugh of Empty Netters at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

First things first, head coach Mike Sullivan had no updates on defenseman Trevor Daley who left the game at 10:32 of the second period. Battling for a puck in the Penguins' left corner, Daley and right winger Ryan Callahan collided. Daley went down in a heap and had trouble recovering to his skates.

Daley needed assistance off the ice and into the dressing room. He did not return. He left Amalie Arena on crutches.

Sullivan suggested he could have some information Saturday.

As far as the game goes, the Penguins got thoroughly outplayed for the first 40 minutes. Almost literally from the start, they were chasing the Lightning. They gave up a goal less than 30 seconds into play and were playing from behind the entire night. They scraped out three goals in the third period to make it interesting and really came close to tying the game a few times. But as captain/center Sidney Crosby said, "We didn't deserve to win."

The Lightning is a very good team. Despite what Games 2 and 3 looked like as far as the possession battle was concerned, this wasn't going to be a mismatch in favor of the Penguins the way the first and second rounds were against the Rangers and Capitals respectively. The Lightning can play with the Penguins when it comes to speed and possession.

Tonight, they were better at the Penguins' own game.

No update on Daley today.  Sullivan says he will be evaluated when the Pens return home later today.
