Pens at Ducks, a 5-3 loss

Something good: They started well enough. A dominant shift from the Crosby line kept the Ducks hemmed in the own zone for an extended period of time, culminating with a Malkin goal against a tired group of Ducks.

Where they need improvement: That second period... woof. If you give up 4 goals in a period, your gonna have a bad time.

Something good: They partially righted themselves in the third, earning two power plays (easily could've been double that, but NHL) and scoring on both. They outshot Anaheim 12-5, but couldn't come up with the equalizer before giving up the empty-netter.
