Coming off a franchise-record 26-point second half blown lead that knocked them a season-high five games under . Gustav Nyquist Red Wings Jersey .500, Raptors GM Masai Ujiri realizes his team has serious roster flaws and expects his conversations with GMs around the league to intensify following a Dec. 15 deadline which allows teams to deal the free agents they signed in the off-season. Speaking Thursday on TSN 1050, the first-year GM made a point of reassuring Torontos fan-base he would not tolerate the mediocre play that has led to the team missing the post-season for five consecutive years, while also failing to land a top-four draft pick. “We will not be caught in no-mans land,” Ujiri said, noting the roster he inherited from former GM Bryan Colangelo lacks chemistry and contains parts that are too similar to function properly. “We do have the same kind of players and we have to figure that out,” Ujiri said, while acknowledging the fact the team ranks dead-last in the NBA in assists to be an issue. Besides point guard Kyle Lowry, no Raptors player is averaging more than three per game. The assist issue, combined with the teams poor three-point shooting – Toronto is 20th in the NBA in three-point percentage and none of their starters average better than 40 percent – has played a large role in the teams 6-11 start. Ujiri said chemistry is a key issue for any team and although Dwane Casey is doing his best, he is limited because of the way the roster has been constructed.

Evgeni Malkin and Brandon Sutter also scored for the Penguins, who bounced back from a 3-0 shutout at the hands of Vancouver on Thursday and won for the third time in their last four games. It was important to have a (good) rebound game, said Penguins coach Mike Johnston. We feel we didnt play our best (on Thursday). Marc-Andre Fleury made 27 saves, including two in the closing moments, in the victory. Milan Michalek and Mika Zibanejad scored second-period goals for Ottawa, which has lost five in a row and seven of its last eight. Craig Anderson stopped 30 shots in defeat, but had little chance on Ehrhoffs winner. The Penguins worked for the puck deep and Sidney Crosby emerged with it along the left boards. He backhanded a cross-ice pass to an unchecked Ehrhoff, who moved into the right circle alone and blasted a shot from the dot into the upper right corner of the net for his second goal of the season. Fleury kept the Penguins in front with 1:19 to play when he stopped a deflected shot and stuck out the glove to deny Bobby Ryans rebound from the doorstep. Malkin gave the Penguins a 1-0 lead just 4:17 into the game, shortly after he exited the penalty box after serving a roughing minor. He picked up the puck at center ice, raced into the Ottawa zone on a breakaway and made neat move from the backhand to the forehand as he approached the crease and slipped a shot just inside the left post. Anderson remained on the ice for a time after Malkin crashed into him, but stayed in the game and turned aside the other 12 shots he faced in the first period to keep the Senators down only one.

Michalek tipped an Erik Karlsson point shot past Fleury just 73 seconds into the stanza on a power play and Zibanejad scored from the slot off a nice feed from Ryan at the 8:44 mark. The Penguins picked up a late power play and tied it just 1:57 before the end of the second when Sutter deflected Olli Maattas shot from the left boards. We competed and worked hard and thats what you have to do, said Crosby. Getting that late goal in the second period was big and allowed us to come back in the third.
