The Pittsburgh Penguins, a franchise built to win now, gifted with two of the finest talents of a generation, are facing the grim possibility of going down 3-0 in the Eastern Conference final.

It hasn’t been pretty and that is why Game 3 Wednesday night has the potential to be a watershed for a few of the key personalities in the Pittsburgh machine.
