Is the even strength play of the Penguins good enough?
The even strength play of the Pittsburgh Penguins has not been good enough to keep up with the rest of the league. The Penguins so far have relied heavily on the power play to generate a lot of goals. The offensive play of the Penguins defenseman is causing too many turnovers and odd man rushes.
The reason the Penguins have been losing so many games is the lack of defensive play. Too many player are skating through the defense getting easy access to Murray.
The goal total for the Penguins as well. The Penguins have not been able to score even strength, which is the most important part of the game.
