CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Before Sunday's Game 3 against the New York Islanders, Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan said the team would play with a sense of urgency but didn't want to use the word desperation.
Following a 4-1 loss in that game, it's officially desperation time for the Penguins. They're down 0-3 in the series with Game 4 Tuesday night at PPG Paints Arena.
"It's not the position you want to be in, but i think that being said I'd love to be a part of the team that comes back from that. We believe it starts with just winning one game," Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said.
The Penguins hope to avoid a series sweep, which last happened in the 2013 Eastern Conference Final against the Boston Bruins.
The team canceled a scheduled practice at UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex Monday. Several players did address the media including captain Sidney Crosby who said he'd love to be part of a team that overcomes a 3-game deficit.
