    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Scores in Friday loss

    Cullen scored his sixth goal of the season Friday but finished with a minus-3 rating against the Lightning. The line of Cullen, Carl Hagelin and Phil Kessel committed more than its fair share of defensive breakdowns. Because all of the team's current bottom-six forwards have played in the AHL this year, look for the line of Cullen, Hagelin and Kessel to stay together for at least one more game with Evgeni Malkin (lower body) out.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Moves up with Malkin out

    Cullen is expected to serve as a center for Pittsburgh's second line with Phil Kessel and Carl Hagelin on Friday and Saturday due to Evgeni Malkin's (lower body) absence, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Cullen has excelled as a bottom-six center but did skate for several games with Sidney Crosby earlier in the season. While the 39-year-old has just two points in his last 10 games, he scored Tuesday and has registered 10 shots on goal over the last two games.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Back to bottom six

    Cullen is expected to center a third line with Kevin Porter and Eric Fehr on Saturday in Montreal. It appears the experiment putting Cullen on Evgeni Malkin's line is pretty much over. The 39-year-old will continue killing penalties but he doesn't belong in a top-six role at this stage of his career. Cullen has scored four goals and 12 points in 40 games.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Picks up two points Saturday

    Cullen netted a shorthanded goal and added an assist Saturday against the Islanders. He's played surprisingly well in a top-six role as a winger for Evgeni Malkin. Cullen makes for an interesting waiver-wire pickup while he's hot.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Skating with big boys Thursday

    Cullen will skate left wing on a line with Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel to open Thursday's game in Detroit. The Pens are experimenting with their lines after scoring twice against Toronto on Wednesday. Coach Mike Sullivan has made in-game changes often, so there's a good chance Cullen will return to his bottom-six role in the near future.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Will play Wednesday

    As expected, Cullen will play Wednesday against the Maple Leafs. The 39-year-old forward was simply given a maintenance day Tuesday, and was never in serious danger of missing Wednesday's tilt. The former second-round pick is expected to center Eric Fehr and Kevin Porter on the Pens' fourth line in Wednesday's matchup with Toronto.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Misses Tuesday practice

    Cullen missed Tuesday's practice with a maintenance day, according to coach Mike Sullivan. Sullivan downplayed Sullivan's injury, making it entirely possible that he plays Wednesday. The 39-year-old has scored three goals and 10 points in 35 games as a fourth-line centerman.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Nets goal against Colorado

    Cullen deflected a shot from the point into the net in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Avalanche. Cullen was on an extended cold streak, recording just one point in 12 contests. December has seen the veteran center get back on the scoresheet with two goals in four games. More of a grinder than a prolific scorer, Cullen has managed to get at least 25 points in each of his 11 NHL seasons.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Goal and assist in win over Toronto

    Cullen scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 4-0 win over Toronto. The old man can still play. Cullen turns 39 on Monday and is clearly in the sunset of his career. But he has four points in 11 games and is holding his own, although he probably won't afford fantasy owners with much value, even in deep leagues.

  • Set to center line in Pittsburgh

    News: Matt Cullen will start the season as Pittsburgh's fourth-line center and serve as a penalty killer.
    Analysis: The 37-year-old is expected to give the Pens a hint of offensive ability on a fourth line which had very little scoring prowess in 2014-15. Matt Cullen netted seven goals and 25 points in 62 games for Nashville last year and has a long relationship with GM Jim Rutherford via their stints with Carolina. Cullen had a decent camp and could serve as an in-season waiver-wire pickup when injuries strike.
