CRANBERRY, Pa. -- "To win in the playoffs, you can't be a high-risk team," Mike Sullivan was saying Thursday at his season-ending press conference. The coach didn't refer to any player by name. Didn't have to either.
Though the Penguins have a few high-risk players, no one fits that description better than Kris Letang. It was his turnover that led to Josh Bailey's overtime-winner in Game 1 and it was his giveaway that led to Jordan Eberle's tying goal in Game 4 of Pittsburgh's humbling first-round loss to the New York Islanders.
