Tired Penguins

from Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

It took Dan Bylsma less than an hour.

The Penguins coach quickly canceled Wednesday's practice after an underwhelming 3-2 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday.

If that performance wasn't enough to convince Bylsma his team is out of gas — and when veterans suggest “pride” and “passion” are lacking or that something is missing — statistics support the possibility.

Eight Penguins — Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Chris Kunitz, James Neal, Matt Niskanen, Craig Adams, Tanner Glass and Jussi Jokinen — are receiving significantly more playing time this season compared to last season.
