Penguins 1 - Blackhawks 4: What the hell??

How bad are the Penguins?? They lost to the Dinner Jackets, and now they lose to the Chickenhawks??

It's so bad that even Dick Tarnstrom finds himself a healthy scratch.

Chicago scored the first three goals Friday night and the Blackhawks never looked back in a 4-1 win over the Penguins.

Andy Hilbert got the Blackhawks on the scoreboard first 6:15 into the game. Off a rebound, he backhanded a shot past Marc-Andre Fleury and into the net.

Hilbert backhanded another puck past Fleury 5:20 later to make it 2-0.

Chicago needed 1:03 more to boost its lead to 3-0. Radim Vrbata converted on a power play for the Blackhawks.

Colby Armstrong cut the Penguins’ deficit to 3-1 with a power-play goal. He took a pass from Sidney Crosby and looked around Blackhawks goalie Adam Munro on the far post and was able to slide the puck just inside the post and jam it into the net. Ziggy Palffy earned the other assist.

Martin Lapointe made it 4-1 when he scored a power-play goal 9:30 into the third period.
Sir Sidney was one of the few Penguins who were playing good although he put up just a lone assist in 17:56 of ice time. Sidney managed to finish EVEN and win 50% of his draws!!! He went 12 for 24, which is pretty damn good for Crosby.
