Penguins’ Recent Play Means There’s No Need to Panic

The Penguins themselves did it in 2009 and 2016, although both times they fired their head coach in the midst of the season. The St. Louis Blues were in 30th place well into December in 2018-19 when they also fired their coach and went on a run that led them to a Stanley Cup victory. To be fair, Mike Sullivan shouldn’t be going anywhere anytime soon.
