The Pittsburgh Penguins could not give up the first goal and they did when Carl Hagelin took advantage of a bad line change and scored to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead after the first period. Midway through the second period, Chris Kreider gave the Rangers a 2-0 lead, but it was after a non penalty call before the goal. The Penguins trailed 2-0 going into the third period and changed their tactics. They crowded Henrik Lundqvist and threw everything at him, and Patric Horniqvist scored to cut the deficit to 2-1. Unfortunately, the Penguins came short and losing 2-1 plus trailing in the series 2 games to 1. The Penguins cut down on their penalties, but they didn’t have a 60 minutes effort this evening. They have to have it on Wednesday night for game 4 at Consol Energy Center or the Penguins will go back to Madison Square Garden trailing 3 games to 1. If the Penguins are trailing 3 games to 1 going into Friday’s night game in NYC i don’t like their chances.
