The Pittsburgh Penguins’ trio of Evgeni Malkin, James Neal and Chris Kunitz need to be reunited to clear the fog that has crept its way into the Penguins’ focus. The Penguins pride themselves on their ability to score and dominate puck possession. Right now they are not focusing or executing to any degree of satisfaction.
“I think we have high expectations and when we don’t execute to the level we want too, I think that’s disappointing,” said Kunitz.
After a lackluster effort in a 4-0 loss to the New York Islanders Tuesday night, the time has come for Dan Bylsma to reunite Kunitz with Malkin and Neal to spark the offense. Through six games the Pens’ offense has registered 15 goals. This is 18th best in the NHL and something is obviously not working.
