Sidney Crosby wasn't pleased with his team's effort in their 6-2 loss to the Flyers on Sunday.
The Penguins have now dropped three straight games (two in a shootout) and their captain wants to see more from his team. "That's the way it's going," said Crosby. "We've got to find ways to win games. We can't control who's in and out, but we've got to be able to make sure our effort's there. We didn't give ourselves much of a chance tonight." The Pens currently sit in third place in the Metropolitan Division. If the playoffs were to start today, they'd be heading to Columbus. Mar 27 - 10:45 AM
