11/07/09-Penguins vs. Sharks: 5-0 L

Well, if the Pens so-so performance against the Kings the other night bothered you, here’s proof that you were on to something. The Penguins looked like crap, and no one really played too well. It was like an extension of the last game, but amplified being that tonight involved a much better opponent.

Is Crosby hurt? I don’t think so, but I’m searching for answers. He’s not playing poorly, but he’s definitely not taking charge either. He needs to. Both of his linemates have been in my doghouse for most of the year, and both still are, but Crosby needs to power through and be the captain and leader of this team, especially now when they need him the most amidst some very impactful injuries.

Of course, other players need to play better too. Staal continues to be ho-hum most nights, Fedotenko is damn near invisible, Orpik might as well be 30 lbs. lighter, and Skoula has a stick up his ass. Kris Letang could also take charge a little more in the offensive zone, however it looks like he’ll also be on the injury list.

    Mike,
    Sitting here with your dad wondering where all the updates are!?! I mean, we have losses to Boston and the ultra-boring NJ Devils to discuss!! Then there is that ultra exciting game Saturday that got us back on track.

    Hey thanks for reading! You know what I couldn’t tell you why I hadn’t written about those games. Maybe the Boston and Devils games lulled me into a sense of complacency! Anyways, gotta get back on the ball so I’ll be whipping something up from the Boston game this Saturday. Again thanks for reading.
