Bad times get Worse

The Pens are in the middle of their toughest stretch so far this season, a 5 game losing streak. This time there is no injuries to blame it on. The Pens are just sucking right now. Cant Blame it on the power play either, it has sucked all year, even during the winning streaks, nope chalk this one up to unfocused lazy play by the Pens, and to make matters worse Penguins Wingers Chris Kunitz will be on the shelf for 4 to 6 weeks for surgery on a torn abdominal muscle according to the post Gazette. I dont know what would worry me more, knowing i had to have surgery or knowing that it will happen in Philly. Kunitz has to be sweating that.

This may turn out to be a good thing though as Ray Shero has called Winger Luca Caputi up from WBS. This will be Caputis second call up, he was with the big club last season for a 5 game stint which saw him scoring 1 goal. A goal in 5 games, not too many Pens cans say they have done that in a while. This is exactly what kind of shake up this club needs. A young player that will play hard for sixty minutes. Heres to Caputi proving that he should stay.

Go Pens
