Pittsburgh Penguins fans are envious of their division rival. The New Jersey Devils are sitting two points ahead of them in the playoff race, and they just went and fired their head coach Lindy Ruff, whom they recently gave a two-year extension. Meanwhile, the Pens are riding out with Mika Sullivan at the helm and a power play not living up to its potential under Todd Reirden. It's like watching someone throw gasoline on a burning dumpster.


Feeling the Heat: Penguins Fans React to Coaching Decisions



It has fans wondering - how much longer will Sullivan last? It's frustrating, no doubt about it. Pittsburgh has the talent and passion, but something hasn't been clicking all season. And when you see other teams making bold moves to try and turn things around, it's hard not to feel a little envious.
In the meantime, the hope is that Sullivan can turn things around in the black and gold and get them back on track.
