Overcoming a one-goal deficit to win a game is nothing special in the NHL. Teams do it pretty much every night of the season.

Doing it twice on the same night is not exactly rare, but, when a club does it three times, that is noteworthy.

And when a team is obliged to try to do it four times, as the Penguins were in their 4-3 loss against Toronto at the Air Canada Centre Saturday night, well, that is a bit unrealistic.

"To come back three times is a lot to ask," Penguins winger Craig Adams said. "To come back four times was too much to ask."
