Know who the Penguins could use right about now? Tanner Pearson.
Not that he would've made an iota of difference in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the New York Islanders. If Sidney Crosby, Jake Guentzel, Evgeni Malkin, Phil Kessel, Patric Hornqvist and Kris Letang can't solve Robin Lehner and Co., there's scant evidence to believe Pearson would've either. But "Pears" could have regaled the boys about what it's like to overcome a three-game deficit to win a Stanley Cup playoff series.
