This past weekend in the back-to-back against Philadelphia, Chris Kunitz was out of the lineup for the first time since back the 2010-11 season.  His loss was paralyzing for the Pens offense and nobody felt it more than regular linemate Sidney Crosby.  In the two games, Crosby was held pointless with only five shots and was a combined -15 at even strength shot attempts.  It was...
