The Penguins got caught up in the up-and-down the ice trading chances swing in the 2nd. I agree that was nerve-wrecking. It's a risky style of play and the Penguins got burned on the two Islander goals. McDonald's shot was pretty slick. Blew the puck past Zatkoff. Pittsburgh is the type of team that will win by scoring goals, but I don't necessarily believe they need to play up-and-down to be successful. I even think Steigerwald pointed out Bylsma said he wanted the team to avoid it. Pens need to get back to puck possession and cycling. That is where they are at their best.
