Penguins bid for fast start against Avalanche

PITTSBURGH -- A lot of teams talk about getting good starts, but it will really hit home Monday night when the Penguins host the Colorado Avalanche at PPG Paints Arena.

The Penguins (16-12-3) were livid about their opening period Saturday, when they gave up two goals in the initial two minutes and three overall in the first of a 4-3 loss to Toronto.

"I just think it's a (lack of) readiness on our part. It's a lack of awareness," coach Mike Sullivan said. "It starts for me with a mindset and readiness and awareness to play the game hard and play the game with a certain level of commitment right from the drop of the puck, and for whatever reason we didn't have it."
