After what was thought to be a promissing start to the season with two consecutive whoopings of the Flyers and the Rangers, the Penguins came out and dropped 3 of the next 4 games against Winnipeg, the Islanders and the Maple Leafs. Most would have thought this was going to be an easy set of games for a far superior Penguins team, but turnovers by the bunches for pretty much all the forwards sealed these losses pretty decidely. Sitting at 3-3 with 41 games until the tournament the Penguins aren't entering Kenny Loggins territory yet but something needs to change soon, and it looks like some one, I'm not going to point any fingers ehem Eric Tangradi may be sitting to allow newly aquired first round pick Zach Boychuk to get some ice time. With only 73 total games played in the NHL Boychuk has netted 7 goals and 14 assists with a +/- of -4. Pens are in New York again tonight to face the Rangers. Do it...
