Power Rankings
The Pens are back and Sidney Crosby is back in a big, big way. The Pens have won six of their last seven to climb into third place in the Metro, while Crosby is on an 11-game points streak over which he has compiled 22 points. Just ridiculous.
Players have been giving new head coach Mike Sullivan good reviews and itís hard not to see why. The results are coming. Most of the roster is playing better under the new boss and Pittsburgh is back in a playoff spot after winning three straight.
With three wins over their past four games, the Pens keep inching towards a playoff spot. Evgeni Malkin recently all but guaranteed the team would make the postseason. He's backing up his words with eight points over his past five games.
Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin have been on fire and it hasn't been enough to turn the Penguins' season around. They're still on the outside looking in when it comes to a playoff spot and have lost five of their last seven.
Pittsburgh is within striking distance of a playoff spot after going 5-3-2 in their last 10 games. They need to find a way to get on a little bit of a roll here soon to try and keep pace with the tightening race.
Sidney Crosby looks like he's back and the Penguins may be coming right back with him. Crosby has 10 points in his last seven games, while the Pens have won four of their last six. They're closing back in on a wild-card spot.
The Pens earned wins on both sides of the holiday break, but the offense came to a crashing thud against the struggling Jets. Pittsburgh is currently fifth in the Metro and five points out of the wild card. Will they recover?
The Penguins finally nabbed a win for new coach Mike Sullivan in his fifth game behind the bench. Sidney Crosby is hobbled by injury, but Evgeni Malkin continues to be among the few bright spots in Pittsburgh with 17 goals and 30 points in 33 games.
Losses in five of their last seven games has brought more frustration to the Penguins. GM Jim Rutherford has openly disagreed with coach Mike Johnston on some of his lineup decisions. That's never good.
The Penguins have been such a middle-of-the-road team. Even with a shallow defense, that shouldn't be the case with as all the talent they have up front. They need a big showing on their upcoming four-game Western trip.
Preseason Power Rankings
Yes, the Penguins are 0-2, and yes, they've only scored once so far this year, but no one believes they'll struggle to score all year like they have early. Defense certainly could afford to be better, though.
