The Penguins still have some holes to fix on Defense. The offence the defense has produced thus far in the season is impressive. An up rise in points coming out of the defensive end does not make up for how bad they have been defensively. Losing Justin Schultz does to a concussion does not help either.
Through 10 games this year the Pittsburgh Penguins have already allowed 40 goals. Also, in five of the ten games played so far, they have allowed four or more goals including a 7-1 loss against the Tampa Bay Lightning to finish out their most recent road trip.
The Penguins need to keep the puck out of the defensive zone and start playing the puck more.
