Bryan Rust’s season a story of talent meeting opportunity

Bryan Rust’s season a story of talent meeting opportunity

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports When a good player gets an increased role and an opportunity to shine great things can happen.

But they did what they needed to do: They got back in the win column and feasted on a bad team.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports There’s a recap of last night’s game, Rodrigues is showing versatility, and sports leagues are prepping for the coronavirus. All that and more in today’s Pens Points. Here are your Pens Points for this Wednesday morning... The Penguins returned home from a legendarily bad California road trip to battle the Senators.

Sens Stomped By Penguins 7-3

Photo by Justin Berl/Icon Sportswire via The Penguins broke their six-game losing streak. The Ottawa Senators and Pittsburgh Penguins were in completely opposite positions entering this game. The Sens had won two straight at the tail end of February where they otherwise went 3-7-3, and the Penguins were looking to break a six-game losing streak despite still being one of the top teams in the Metro division. But on paper, the story was totally different. Sidney Crosby vs. Chris Tierney? Evgeni Malkin vs. Colin White? Kris Letang vs. Ron Hainsey? The lopsided expectation was turned into...

Penguins/Senators Recap: Dumoulin and Marino are back and the losing streak is gone. Pens win 7-3

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports Great night for the Penguins to break a losing streak. Bryan Rust records a hat trick, Sidney Crosby chips in three points, and John Marino shines in his return Lineups The Penguins’ perfect attendance club shrinks from 4 to 2 as Brandon Tanev (illness) and Dominik Simon (out with injury) miss their first game of the season — leaving only Teddy Blueger and Marcus Pettersson going 65/65 so far this year. But the bigger story is the defensive returns of Brian Dumoulin and John Marino, who both immediately jump back into top-four roles. Welcome back...
