  • Penguins' Matt Cullen: Pots third goal of postseason

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/5/16) Cullen scored his third goal of the postseason in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over Washington.

    Cullen has been a solid source of secondary scoring for the normally top-heavy Penguins. The 39-year-old had 16 goals in 82 regular season appearances, but is outperforming that pace significantly with three goals in nine playoff contests.

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/23/16) Cullen potted his second game-winning goal in three contests Saturday against the Rangers.

    The 39-year-old center was a late question mark heading into Game 5, as he missed half of the pregame skate. He'll get a few days to recover from any injury he might be suffering from as his second-period score clinched Pittsburgh's first-round victory. Cullen also added an assist, giving him three points in the postseason.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Pots pair of goals in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/7/16) Cullen scored an even-strength and a short-handed goal in 16:38 of ice time in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Capitals.

    Cullen now has 16 goals on the year, a total he hasn't seen since 2009. The veteran center has been hot lately, picking up points in five of his last seven games. Cullen isn't known for his scoring touch, but he is getting it done at all ends of the ice for the Penguins and showing no signs of his age.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Veteran getting it done

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/16) Cullen scored his 14th goal and added an assist in a 5-0 win over the Islanders on Saturday.

    The center has 28 points (14 goals, 14 assists) in 78 games and has become of integral part of the glue keeping Pittsburgh together. He had his fifth-worst day in the faceoff circle -- losing 13 of 20 draws -- but the two-point game was his second in seven contests.

    Penguins' Matt Cullen: Strong showing in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/16) Cullen registered a goal and an assist in Sunday's win over the Capitals.

    Cullen rounded out a productive contest with a plus-3 rating and winning seven of 12 faceoffs. The 39-year-old's 12 goals are his most in four seasons, but it's unlikely he'll light up the scoresheet too often down the home stretch of the season.
