Penguins Fall To The Nordiques. Stumble in Their Push For Postseason

In what many thought would've been a close competitive game, the Penguins fell well short of that here. Let's recap;

In the 1st period, the Nordiques got on the board first at 3:29 when Roberts scored his 2nd of the season from Sakic and Stevens to make it 1-0. Then at 8:37 Esa Keskinen scored his 2nd of the season with a powerplay goal from Jagr and Elynuik to make it 1-1. But, the Nords would answer at 14:35 when Finley scored his 3rd of the season from Matthau and Kasper to retake the lead 2-1. That would be all for the 1st period. 

In the 2nd period, the Nordiques struck first once again when at 5:22 Stevens scored his 6th of the season from Hatcher and Roberts. Then they'd add another at 8:06 to make it 4-1 when Sakic scored his 5th of the season from Stevens and Finley. Less than a minute and a half later the Penguins would get back within 2 when at 10:31 Turgeon scored his 3rd of the season with a powerplay goal from Jagr and Podein, and make the score 4-2. Then right before the end of the period, at 18:13, Nemchinov would score on a solo effort for the Nordiques to make it 5-2 and hammer home the final coffin nail in the Penguins. 

In the 3rd period, the Nordiques would add another for good measure when Stevens would score just 37 seconds into the period to make it 6-2. That would be the final for this one. 

Next up the Penguins will play the winless Rangers in New York.
