‘Everybody’s frustrated’: Penguins fall to 0-3 under Mike Sullivan after another loss to Bruins


Another game for the Pittsburgh Penguins with Mike Sullivan behind the bench and another loss.

For the second time this week, the Penguins lost to the Boston Bruins, this time by a final score of 6-2 on Friday.

Boston got a hat trick from Frank Vatrano — the first of his NHL career in just his 17th game — and scored four unanswered goals to completely take the game over, sending the struggling Penguins, once again without goalie Marc-Andre Fleury due to a concussion, to their third straight loss since last weekend’s coaching change.

The night started with positive vibes for the Penguins. Undrafted free agent signing Conor Sheary scored his first NHL goal at the age of 23, burying a pass from Sidney Crosby.

Recently acquired defenseman Trevor Daley scored his first goal as a Penguin.

But seven minutes after Daley scored, the Bruins took back the lead on a Loui Eriksson power play goal in the second period. Patrice Bergeron increased the lead for Boston, and it was the Frank Vatrano Show after that, as he scored twice in three minutes late in the third period to record the hat trick.
