Now that the absolutely unthinkable has happened and the Penguins have gone over two games without scoring a goal, the Internet has exploded with "Crosby Sucks" comments and demands that the Penguins make a trade before everything falls apart.
But the reaction around the web is to be expected.
The world loves watching the Pittsburgh Penguins struggle, no matter how brief or unimportant the struggles may be.
Remember last year, when people were calling for the Penguins to trade Sidney Crosby?
Remember the glee around the Internet when the Pens sat out of a playoff spot in February?

They can ride this out.

We have no idea what LoveLife.ch is, but their ads are Charlie approved.
The NHL is keeping the trapezoid behind the net.
The Phoenix Coyotes want Chris Chellios.
Apparently there are still tickets available for tomorrow's Penguins/Devils game.
It's probably because Sidney Crosby is a terrible leader and no one wants to pay to see him play.
