Tim Benz, Mark Madden break down Penguins’ 3-0 hole vs. Islanders
We bring you this week’s Madden Monday from PPG Paints Arena after the Penguins drop a 4-1 decision in Game 3 to the New York Islanders.
Mark Madden of 105.9 the X and TribLIVE joins me as we figure out how the Isles have built a commanding 3-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference quarterfinal. The Penguins have never erased such a deficit. In recent tries, they were swept by Boston in 2013. They extended a 3-0 hole to a Game 6 against Philadelphia in 2012.
The Islanders came back from 3-0 down against the Penguins back in 1975. It sure doesn’t feel like the Penguins will be getting even in 2019, though, because New York looks very much in control.
Mark and I talk about how things have gone so wrong, so quickly for the Penguins. We also discuss the club’s inability to sustain momentum against the Islanders. And we try to figure out why the team can’t score worth a lick against New York goaltender Robin Lehner.
Also, we bring up golf because of Tiger Woods’ exciting win at the Masters.
