3rd period letdown by the senators not withstanding there is no excuse the penguins can use as to why they were not more energized.
Sidney's end of 1st period penalty; was it because Sid thought he had a goal in the 1st and they would not review? OR, because he thought D Heatley should have received 4 mins for elbow to face/head? Sid talked with 1 ref nothing heated & then went to the other one & that is the one who called the penalty.
shocking that the pens announcers had no clue what happen.
The 5-on-3 I would rather see R Whitney get into the opponents zone and
then whisk Gonchar into the play. How frustrating to not even be able to set-up a play.
Penguins need a winger to score goals, need somebody with a hunger
to score goals. If pens tied it up or take the lead in the 1st put the sens
on their heels.
If pens get a lottery pick this may be the year to see what other teams offer in terms of picks/players.
Heard Paul STeigerwald complaining that the pens did not use any time
to scrimmage & this contributed heavily to the loss. Poor power play
an issue too.
Can't believe it is tanking time once again.
