Sidney Crosby's line was out chanced 13 to one in game number one. That's not close to good enough. Here's betting they're better in game two. They better be.
Jake Guentzel, the team's leading goal scorer, didn't register a shot. The line was stuck defending for most of the night. A lot of that was due to their own play, but equally as bad was the effort by the defensemen.
The only defenseman who played well was Erik Gudbranson. Justin Schultz was okay. Everyone else played below their ability. That hurt Crosby and his line.
Here's betting Brian Dumoulin and Kris Letang bounce back tonight. Here's betting Jake Guentzel gets at least one shot on goal. Here's betting the captain plays the way he's capable of.
