Things are starting to look a little dicey for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Penguins showed gumption in forcing a 3-3 tie after going down 3-1 on Saturday, but the Tampa Bay Lightning beat them nonetheless, and earned that 5-4 decision in regulation. Pittsburgha€™s now on a troubling four-game losing streak, and theya€™ve only won three of their last 11 games (3-7-1).
