Ron Cook: Penguins get exactly what they deserve -- an unwanted trip back to Philadelphia

This one felt a little different than the Game 2 home loss. The Penguins clearly were the better team than the Philadelphia Flyers that night, but, because of a variety of bad bounces and bad puck luck, they didn’t get the result they wanted in a 5-1 defeat. But Friday night? The Penguins got exactly what they deserved in a 4-2 loss at PPG Paints Arena, where they were 30-9-2 in the regular season and now are 1-2 in these playoffs. They didn’t play nearly well enough to eliminate the Flyers and are facing a dreaded trip back to Philadelphia Sunday afternoon for Game 6 because of it.
