Solution to Penguins Power-Play Woes: Shoooooot!

I never played hockey. Can’t skate a lick. But even I know you have to shoot the puck to score. I wonder if the Penguins do. For all their wondrous talent, the Pens’ power play has morphed into a black hole where scoring chances go to die. There’s a reason our boys are 0-for-18 and counting with the man advantage. They don’t shoot the puck. Not enough, anyway. Think Alex...
