  • Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Hot streak flames out

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/8/18) Guentzel failed to register a point in the final two games of the Penguins' playoff run.

    Even with his mini slump, Guentzel still managed to lead Pittsburgh with 10 goals and was tied with Sidney Crosby for the most points (21). The winger seems to find another gear when the postseason comes around, as he has racked up 23 goals and 19 assists in just 37 contests (1.14 points per game). His numbers aren't quite as impressive in the regular season, but the 23-year-old notched 22 goals and played in all 82 games this year -- both career highs. As long as he continues to play on the left of Crosby, fantasy owners can likely count on the speedster to hit the 20-goal threshold and challenge for 60 points in 2018-19.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Scores two more in Game 4

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/3/18) Guentzel scored an even-strength goal and a power-play empty-netter while firing seven shots in Thursday's 3-1 Game 4 win over the Capitals.

    On the first goal, Matt Niskanen broke his stick and had to borrow one from Devante Smith-Pelly, which created confusion in the defensive zone for Washington just long enough for Guentzel to get open in front and give Pittsburgh a 1-0 lead 39 seconds before the halfway point of regulation. Guentzel also helped Washington get back in it, however, by immediately committing a pair of penalties outside his own zone, the first of which resulted in a power-play goal for the Capitals. He potted a power-play goal of his own into an empty net to seal it in the final minute and has 10 goals in 10 games this postseason. Given how critical Guentzel's scoring has been, Penguins fans will easily forgive and forget his boneheaded penalties.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Two more points in Game 3 loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/1/18) Guentzel recorded a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 Game 3 loss to the Capitals.

    Pittsburgh's down 2-1 in the series, but don't let that distract you from Guentzel's postseason brilliance. He's got eight goals and 11 assists in nine games this postseason, giving him 40 points in 34 career playoff appearances.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Garners assist Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/30/18) Guentzel snagged an assist on the Penguins' lone goal against Washington on Sunday.

    While most of his teammates were ineffective, Guentzel kept his six-game point streak going. The winger is currently tied with Boston's David Pastrnak for the league lead in playoff points with 17 and trails only Winnipeg's Mark Scheifele for the goal lead. If there is blame to go around for the team's subpar outing in Game 2, none of it should fall at the feet of the 22-year-old Guentzel. At this point, it would take a significant slump in production to see the Omaha native taken off Sidney Crosby's line.

    Penguins' Jake Guentzel: Scores four goals in Game 6 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/22/18) Guentzel scored four goals and an assist in Sunday's 8-5 win over the Flyers in Game 6.

    The 23-year-old had a natural hat trick plus one, scoring four straight goals starting in the final minute of the second period to blow the game open. Guentzel has had a huge playoff so far skating alongside Sidney Crosby, scoring seven goals and 13 points in six games, and he and the Penguins will now get at least a brief rest before taking on the winner of the Blue jackets-Capitals series.
