There was a lot for Ottawa Senators head coach Paul MacLean to be frustrated with after their Game 4 loss. The first period ended with the Senators ahead 2-1, but in the third the Pittsburgh Penguins offense erupted for four goals en route to a 7-3 win.

After the game, there would be no questions for MacLean from the media. He apparently didn't feel the need to add to the story that the gamesheet told:

If only he had dropped the mic before he walked off...

As Matt Kassian told our own Nick Cotsonika, MacLean knows just how to get through to his players, whether it's slipping in a joke during meetings to lighten the mood or, well, holding 13 second press conferences with the stern look of a drill sergeant.

It's worked up to this point. Will it for Game 5?
