Thanks to Saturday’s 3-2 victory over Arizona, the Penguins’ prospects are a little brighter. With the postseason just around the corner, the black and gold moved into second place in the Metropolitan Division. They hold a seemingly insurmountable seven-point cushion over Ottawa.
Don’t be fooled. This team isn’t a legit Cup contender…not by [...]
It was a pretty goal. Especially by recent black-and-gold standards. Beau Bennett cruised into the slot, gathered up a loose puck, and slipped it through the goalie’s five-hole.
