Pittsburgh's season is in jeopardy all because their top 2 star players Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are both injured. Malkin is done for the season with a torn acl and Crosby has no timetable to return due to his concussion he received at the classic outdoor game against Washington.
Mark Letestu is also injured and out for probably 6 weeks and this means expect Pittsburgh to go on a bit of a losing streak and hope to survive for a playoff position.
Meanwhile Matt Cooke is suspended after injuring more players. It is surprising that this guy is still allowed to march around the league with dangerous hits to the head. Marc Savard's career might be over thanks to Cooke and who knows who will be his next victim.
