Pens' Fans React To The Shootout Loss

Fans of the Pittsburgh Penguins have reacted tonight to their team's loss to the Washington Capitals. For the most part, they're looking on the bright side of things.

Here's SBN's Pensburgh:

All things considered, the Pens were losing in the 3rd period against what's been the best team in the league and ended up tying things up.  The ending of the game is unsatisfactory on this side, but it's a shootout, what can you do?  More important was the style played: the Pens showed some encouraging signs working their forecheck, generating turnovers, utilizing the cycle down low, getting more shots.  All of those things they did on a regular basis last playoff series against the Caps.  And if it should come to that again this season, it'll be all things they need to do again, hopefully this time with the benefit of having Malkin and Gonchar.
