  • Penguins' Chris Kunitz: Pots two goals in victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/28/16) Kunitz notched two goals -- one on the power play -- and two PIM during Wednesday's 2-0 preseason win against the Blackhawks.

    Kunitz isn't quite the weapon that he was in his early years with the Penguins, but the veteran winger can still put up points in bunches. The 37-year-old produced 17 goals and 23 helpers in two straight years, and should carve out similar numbers in his eighth campaign with Pittsburgh.

    Penguins' Chris Kunitz: Extends goal streak to three games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/23/16) 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 Pen 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 CBSSports.com
    (5/21/16) 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 quarterfinals, but he's taken off offensively ever since Game 5 of the conference 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 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 | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/18/16) 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 CBSSports.com
    (5/8/16) 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 his performance in a critical Game 6 on Tuesday.
