This is the part I really don't get with the Pens' PK (in particular). They never clear the guy standing right on the goalie's doorstep. Other teams, you see the defenseman constantly pushing/shoving/boxing out anyone attempting to remain in front of their goalie. The Pens just basically glance at the guy, then try and block passes/shots from getting to him.
