Media Kit

Last Game: Wednesday in Hershey in Game 5, the Pens lost 5-3. After battling back from a three goal deficit to tie it, Zach Sill scored a shorthanded goal that broke the tie and gave the Bears the win. Casey DeSmith came in to relieve Tristan Jarry after Jarry gave up the third Bears goal.

What to watch for: First goal. The team that has scored the first goal in this series has gone on to win every game. Not just this postseason, but the regular season as well. The Penguins will also need to watch on special teams. They have given up four shorthanded goals this postseason and two just in this series with the Bears. Any more mistakes like this and it’s going to be offseason quickly.
