CRANBERRY, Pa. -- During training camp, Mike Sullivan had a simple line about how they evaluate the growth of young players.
"You can't always control when the puck goes in the net or if it doesn't," he said. "But you can control the process."
It's not exactly ground-breaking stuff. But it's a good reminder that you can't always judge players based on how often they show up on the scoresheet.
Three Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins who haven't quite found the back of the net (well, aside from one empty-netter) this season are Thomas Di Pauli, Teddy Blueger, and Ryan Haggerty. The trio played on a line together in Wilkes-Barre's first two games of the season, before head coach Clark Donatelli experimented with different line combinations during Saturday's game.
