Pittsburgh Penguins Three Stars of the Week

1 of 6

Last week was far from a banner week for the Pittsburgh Penguins. After starting things out with a 7-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild, the Penguins looked towards two games against Metropolitan divisional opponents. The results of the games against the New York Islanders and New York Rangers didn’t provide many positive highlights.

The Penguins jumped ahead 2-0 over the Islanders, but ended up squandering a pair of leads in their loss on Long Island. On Sunday, the Penguins failed to execute at the start of the game and that effort against the Rangers left them with only two out of six possible points for week.

The Penguins will play a set of back-to-back games before entering into the All-Star Break. They’ll travel to Philadelphia this evening and return home to face the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night.

Here are your three stars from last week.
