03:17 PM ET 05.23 | The Ottawa Senators were trashed by the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference showdown on Wednesday despite hanging with the Pens for two periods of hockey. After the game, Senators head coach Paul MacLean spoke with reporters for roughly 13 seconds about his team's play in Game 4 and his wide-eyed look was proof the beating still hadn't fully sunk in yet. Perhaps the most surprising part of the post-game press conference was how passive MacLean was despite just having the Penguins knock them down and then stomp all over them in front of an Ottawa friendly crowd. Most coaches would go ballistic after such a loss and many have for losses that haven't even taken place in as meaningful a spot as this loss. Ottawa's facing elimination after the 7-3 loss and people around the club won't be as passive as MacLean if the season ends before a sixth and seventh game is reached.

Sticker shock, as the Pens stuck it to him.

Nothing you can say after a performance like that, so 13 seconds is about right, give or take a blink

After watching that fan in the first row in Detroit who kept jumping up every time the camera panned his way, I'm sort of leaning towards the Hawks coming back!
