Penguins pulverize Senators 7-0


A possible explanation for the lack of spirit could be the Senators' embarrassing 7-0 loss in Game 5 Sunday at Pittsburgh.

There was a third goal, we'll spare you.

The situation looked dire. "Probably our fore-check creates a lot more".

"I don't know if it's a surprise", Sullivan said.

Daley scored Pittsburgh's third power-play goal at 8:40 of the third for a 7-0 lead. Through blown 3-1 leads and Game 7s that almost always ended with a handshake line as the other guys moved on.

Anderson, who was playing on his 36th birthday, gave up one more before the first intermission, on Scott Wilson's sharp-angle shot at 18:17 for a 4-0 Pittsburgh lead.

Those are not typical Penguins numbers, and that goes for when Sidney Crosby and Co. are matched up against formidable defensive teams. He has had a nice two-game stretch in net and the Pittsburgh scorers are finding the net again. The rather pedestrian Penguins pairings that took the ice - Brian Dumoulin/Ron Hainsey, Olli Maatta/Justin Schultz and Ian Cole/Chad Ruhwedel - don't exactly strike fear in the opposition. He got injured early in the postseason, but eventually got his job back thanks to Pittsburgh's 5-1 loss to Ottawa in Game 3. National Hockey League justice in the form of supplemental discipline is just too unpredictable and uncontrollable to get invested in.

Karlsson left the game late in the second period after taking a hit and falling on his foot; after confirming he played the first round of the postseason with a fractured left foot, the team likely wanted to err on the side of caution.

Sidney Crosby, Bryan Rust and Phil Kessel each had a goal and an assist, and Carter Rowney and Evgeni Malkin each added three assists for Pittsburgh. "We've got to find a way to have success". "So I think we're going to have a real good one". The Sens have to do the same thing if they are going to earn a spot in the Stanley Cup Final and knock out the defending champions. He believed the power play was trying to make plays that werent there. I tried to do my best to give the team a chance to win. "We just have to bring our best game".

Beauty is more in the eye of the beholder when it comes to the Senators.

Wingels also isn't a really physical or dirty player.

Instead of plunking his players down in front of the tube to pore over the disaster that was, the coach should put them out to skate Monday. "They certainly did. We know that it's unacceptable and we have to move on". If they keep playing like this they will win the Cup for sure.

Pittsburgh was out of gas against Washington heading into Game 7 in the Eastern Conference semifinal, having lost consecutive games, including a crushing 5-2 defeat in Pittsburgh in Game 6. But were expecting Crosby at his best the next game and Malkin and Kessel and those guys, and its going to be very, very, very, very hard.”. "We made a decision to shorten down the bench and get ready for the next game", said Karlsson.
