Penguins' Chris Kunitz: Extends goal streak to three games
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Kunitz collected a goal and an assist in Game 5 on Sunday, but the Penguins would ultimately fall to the Lightning in overtime, 4-3.

The Pens have lost two straight, but one cannot blame Kunitz for the sudden collapse. He's found twine in three straight games while playing a tenacious brand of hockey. If you have Kunitz going in playoff pools, you have to like how he's hoisted 19 shots in the series. Still, the Penguins must win Game 6 on Tuesday to avoid elimination from the playoffs.

Penguins' Chris Kunitz: Takes advantage of power play
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Kunitz found twine on the power play in Game 4 on Friday, but the Penguins fell short of the Lightning, 4-3.

Kunitz was held off of the scoresheet entirely against the Rangers in the conference quarterfinals, but he's taken off offensively ever since Game 5 of the semifinals, an eventual series win over the Capitals. Over that span, Kunitz has three goals and four points, including scores in the last two games against the Bolts. Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel are among the biggest stars on the team, but that only seems to take the pressure off Kunitz. His tendency to fly under the radar also makes him a fine budget play in daily fantasy formats.

Penguins' Chris Kunitz: Scores second goal of playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kunitz scored his second goal of the playoffs in Wednesday's 4-2 win at Tampa Bay.

Despite attempting over two shots per game, Kunitz hasn't been very productive up to this point. Both of his goals have come in the past five games, so it's possible the veteran is starting to turn the corner after an excruciatingly slow start to the postseason.

Penguins' Chris Kunitz: Nets power-play tally in Game 5 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Kunitz scored a power-play goal in Saturday's Game 5 loss to the Capitals.

It was the first power-play goal of the series for Pittsburgh, who failed to cash in on an opportunity to close out the series. Kunitz was bumped up to the top power-play unit and made an immediate impact. The 36-year-old has just three points (one goal) in 10 playoff games, so the Penguins are hoping he can build off this performance in a critical Game 6 on Tuesday.
