Time Slipping Away for Penguins

Pens fans were given false hope when the Pens made the huge comeback to beat Tampa Wednesday night and handled Columbus Friday night.  The lackadaisical non-effort from the home club returned for today’s marquee showdown with the Red Wings.  No energy, no spark, no nothing.  Just a lot of blah and a 3-0 loss at Mellon Arena.  I’m not sure if last year’s run to Game 6 of the Finals took all the energy out of the team.  I’m not sure if they are simply counting on waking up in the stretch drive, getting 11 points in their last 6 games and sneaking in the playoffs in the end, but that is a dangerous game to be playing.  They need a fire lit under their asses, and if Michel Therrien can’t do it anymore they need to bring in someone else that can.  This team has entirely too much talent to be missing the playoffs, and they most certainly would miss right now.
