Pens' sole focus is on Game 4

by Michelle Crechiolo @PensInsideScoop / Penguins Team Reporter

Control the controllables. Don't dwell on what's already happened. Learn from it and move by it. Be ready for the next challenge and take care of the task at hand. And perhaps most importantly, stay in the moment.

That's what Mike Sullivan and the rest of the Penguins coaching staff have discussed with their team all year, and it's more important than ever as they look to keep their season alive heading into Game 4 of their First Round matchup with the New York Islanders on Tuesday at PPG Paints Arena down 3-0 in the series.
