Pens lose 4-3 in OT...

The Pens lost last night, 4-3. We blew a two goal lead in the third and it was a highly disappointing result, but at least they pulled into a three-way tie for first in the Atlantic Division.

Petr Sykora got his 600th point of his career, but it wasn't enough to overcome a third period collapse which saw us give up two goals. It seems like we got a little lazy when we got the two goal lead and it cost us big time.

Coach Therrien called out Ryan Whitney for not being aggressive enough and basically called the entire performance unacceptable. All of the players were upset about losing the extra point to a team within the division, and this is something that just cannot happen when Sid's down. We're going to have enough trouble getting points - we can't give them away like this or we won't make the playoffs.

One thing to note - the Pens haven't won back-to-back games since that tear they went on at the end of December...not a good sign.

Until lata today, when we list our top 5 and bottom 5 Super Bowl ads...

I think the penguins are just starting to get tiered. Without out half there starting line up in the game due to injury, they are forcing Geno and other normal starters to play longer shifts. This leads to them being tiered in the thierd, I guess well see if im rite
