If the Pittsburgh game was a test that they passed, this was one where they earned an F. We’ve seen this game before, against Florida, Vancouver, Ottawa, and we shouldn’t have to see it again. It was an absolute turnover-fest. The whole team stood around like statues. They couldn’t clear the puck out of their own zone. They didn’t hit anybody. They poke-checked their way around the ice.
