WATCH: Penguins score twice in 1:02 to open Stanley Cup Final scoring

What's better than one goal? Two goals! The last time the Pittsburgh Penguins played in the Stanley Cup Final, Bryan Rust was 17 years old and playing in the USNTDP. He was still a year away from being drafted, and several years yet away from becoming a Penguins hero. But now, his legend just grows. It took longtime Penguin Chris Kunitz passing to former Edmonton Oiler (started from the bottom, now we here) Justin Schultz - and then Rust simply capitalized on the rebound, scoring his first non-elimination game playoff goal. Of course, after the way Game 7 against the Tampa Bay Lightning...

New coach’s speed game suits Penguins just fine

PITTSBURGH - The Penguins played in back-to-back Stanley Cup Finals in 2008 and 2009 and looked set to dominate the sport for the next half decade or more. Crosby and Evgeni Malkin remain, along with a couple of others from the ’09 team, which beat Detroit for the title, including top defenseman Kris LeTang, forward Chris Kunitz and goalie Marc-Andre Fluery (who has been supplanted in goal by Matt Murray). Perhaps the biggest change for the Penguins this season came in December, when coach Mike Johnston was fired and former Sharks player Mike Sullivan replaced him. “Once they...

2016 Stanley Cup Final preview: Bonino and Letang miss practice Sunday

As the Pittsburgh Penguins prepared for the 2016 Stanley Cup Final that begin tomorrow with 2 weekend practices, two key players weren't on the ice. Nick Bonino and Kris Letang were not on the ice, but according to coach Mike Sullivan it was just "maintenance". One backup for that might have been how they lined up today: Conor Sheary - Sidney Crosby - Patric Hornqvist Chris Kunitz - Evgeni Malkin - Bryan Rust Carl Hagelin - Oskar Sundqvist - Phil...

Better Know a Penguin: Chris Kunitz

As the passenger to the Sidney Crosby show, Kunitz has caught an awful lot of flack for being good enough to keep up with the generational great. Regardless of how his legs move now, Kunitz still drives play and is still a valuable piece to this team. When people talk about the complimentary players on the Penguins, Kunitz is the first player to be named. It may not seem like much but on a squad that thrives off of those players, it carries a lot more weight. Name: Chris Kunitz Number/Position: #14 / Left Wing Born: September 26th, 1979 (36 years old) Birthplace: Regina, Saskatchewan,...

Pens Points: ECF Game 4

Let's go for some more road wining while we're at it. Good morning one and all, Patric Hornqvist left game 3 after blocking a shot with his hand, and his status for game 4 remains uncertain, despite Mike Sullivan saying he didn't think it would be a serious thing. [PPG] *Now that the baby Pens season is over, the Pens have recalled a group of players to be with the big club in the final stretch of the season. Great article as always from Seth Rorabaugh about the benefits of being a Black Ace. [Empty Netters] Chris Kunitz can and does seem a little lost playing in various spots up and down...
