The camouflage jerseys and salute to the military may have been the best part of the night for the Penguins (9-3-2) as they fell 4-2 to the Minnesota Wild (7-4-1) last night at PPG Paints Arena.
If we were to take away any positives from last night it was that the Penguins did go 2/4 on the power play and both units looked very good. The Penguins were outplayed when it came down to 5 vs 5 play and did allow the Wild to put 44 shots on net so that wasn't good. Once again, the Penguins let alien lookalike Eric Staal score. He had a monster night last night, and he's had a history of killing the Penguins. Either way, it's one loss in November and after winning a Stanley Cup, you just don't care as much about these games because they'll come around ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
