Dan Bylsma Wakes-Up the Penguins

from Gene Collier of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

“This day and age, it’s like the old Yogi-ism, 90 percent of the game is half mental, and a lot of that is true,” said Penguins defenseman Mark Eaton after another of Bylsma’s upbeat practices. “A month ago this was a pretty fragile hockey team with a timid attitude. Now it’s like we feel there’s nothing we can’t do. We can get behind, come back and win, but it was a long time coming.

“I think everyone knew the team had this kind of potential. Going back to the beginning of the year, we knew this team was capable of playing this kind of hockey.”...

“At times before he got here,” Sidney Crosby said yesterday, “we could all look around the room and see guys who could give more than they were giving. It wasn’t easy for him. It’s been a combination of things, but part of it was we had to face up to the fact that we weren’t doing everything we could do.”
