Some things can’t be explained.

That’s the view the Pittsburgh Penguins are taking of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinal, when they were beaten handily by the New York Rangers.

For the Penguins, it’s all about Game 6, and another shot at sending the Rangers home for the summer.

“You play a good game (as the Penguins did in a dominating performance in Game 4), and you think you should be able to play like that all the time,” said forward Craig Adams, one of a few Penguins regulars who was on the ice for an optional workout on Saturday at the team’s practice facility.

“I guess I still don’t know why you can’t. But when you have good teams you are playing against and they are trying to win too, it’s never easy.”
