The Penguins are back to being the Penguins, and the Sens are in trouble

The Penguins are back to being the Penguins, and the Sens are in trouble

Apr 18, 2015; New York, NY, USA; Pittsburgh Penguins Sidney Crosby (87) celebrates his second period goal with left wing Chris Kunitz (14) as the New York Rangers center J.T. Miller (10) skates away during game 2 of the 2015 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Round 1 at Madison Square Garden. The Penguins defeated the Rangers 4-3. Mandatory Credit: Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

The weapon backfired.

We regret to inform you the patient is now on life support and is not expected to survive the week.

All that rest the Senators were able to get from days off between games didnt help them track down the puck inside their blue line for a full 82 seconds before the resurrected Bryan Rust dug their grave a little deeper at 16:04 of the first period on Sunday.

That goal, the third in a 7-0 onslaught, matched the Penguins entire offensive production in the first three games of the Eastern Conference Final.

We were taking on some water, Bobby Ryan said of the shift that seemed to last an eternity. I dont think they had many shots. But they were all over the puck and cycling, and that wears you out.

Ryan had a chance to clear the puck, but it slipped under his foot.

I dont think that was the defining goal. I think one, two, three, four, five they all were, he said, but then admitted the third one did define the Senators game. We were in our zone like that countless times. Countless times we were watching them around the outside and eventually get too tired and they take it inside and get the chances.

The rest is a weapon mantra repeated by Guy Boucher throughout the playoffs had a hollow ring to it in the Senators 99th game, counting regular season and playoffs. They looked tired as well as defeated.

And no, you sure wouldnt want to practice that power play, which generated zip in going 0-for-4 and has now blown 29 consecutive chances since Game 1, Round 2.
