The anemic power play.


The Penguin power play has been non existent. This has been altering the way other teams play against them, worse in the upcoming games (the goons from the city of Brotherly Love). There is no excuse for the poor performance, the group is unchanged (now that Gonchar is back), the talent is their.. Recently Coach B tried to deflect some blame from his assistant (Vio), in my view unsuccessfully, since it is Mr. Vio responsibility. The players are static, nobody is moving, there's no one interfering with the view of the goalie, and no one going to the net. Therefor this virtually frees one of the defenseman to play up and put more pressure against the boards. Obviously there isn't too much concern (apparently) beacause the team is doing well..As I mentioned earlier a weak power play is the green flag for dirty hits with certain teams and to stave off a scoring chance.

Also with all the concern about rest and ice time, I bet if we had average results in the pp, we would have had less than half the overtime games played. Somebody please stand up in the Pens Bench
