In January of this year, a group of hockey “experts” took a stage in Los Angeles and declared to the public the 100 greatest NHL players of all-time.

Overall, nine players who spent time with the Penguins made it, including Mario Lemieux, Sidney Crosby and Paul Coffey.

Chris Kunitz is a guy people outside of Pittsburgh and Anaheim know not much about.

He’s that character actor everybody forgets the name of in that one movie, but they remember that one scene he was pretty good in.

Chris Kunitz scored in double-overtime, his second goal of the game, lifted the Penguins over the Ottawa Senators in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals Thursday night in Pittsburgh.

Sidney Crosby had a goal and an assist, Matt Murray made 26 saves and Pittsburgh evened the Eastern Conference Finals with a 3-2 win over the Senators in Game 4.

These last two games for Ottawa could be the result of a four-week magician's training camp, or the brash attempt to surgically rope-a-dope the Penguins.

Either way, their bend and please don’t break strategy was flowing perfectly until Phil Kessel knocked in his own rebound off a one-timer with 6:55 left in the third period of...

Phil Kessel scored with 6:55 remaining, Marc-Andre Fleury recorded 23 saves for his second shutout in three games and the undermanned Penguins evened the Eastern Conference Finals with a 1-0 win over Ottawa on Monday.

With 6:55 left in the third period, Phil Kessel found what everybody was looking for.
