Lightning_Jonathan_Drouin_2013The Tampa Bay Lightning have done a poor job of killing penalties this season, much to the chagrin of the coaches in charge of it.

“We showed them too much respect,” assistant coach Rick Bowness told the St. Petersburg Times after allowing three PP goals to Pittsburgh on Saturday. “We weren’t aggressive enough, just letting them stand there and make plays.

“We didn’t communicate enough and, quite honestly, we just didn’t compete hard enough.”

Tampa Bay’s penalty kill has fallen on hard times after starting a perfect 3-for-3 in a season-opening loss to Boston.
