Penguins bid to tighten defense vs. Avalanche

DENVER -- The Pittsburgh Penguins know they are getting their opponents' best game every night.

It is the price of winning back-to-back Stanley Cup championships, and so far this season, the Penguins are struggling to be up to the task.

The reigning champs needed a late goal on Saturday to defeat the Arizona Coyotes -- the worst team in the NHL -- and avoid starting 0-2-0 on their three-game Western Conference road trip. With a little momentum, the Penguins (17-14-3) face the Avalanche on Monday -- a week after Colorado beat them 2-1 in Pittsburgh.
