Eastern Conference Standing: 1st

Division: 1st (40-15-3) 83 points

Record for the last 10 games before the Olympic Break: 6-3-1

Top Scorers

  • Sidney Crosby :28 G, 50 A, 78 P
  • Evgeni Malkin: 18 G, 40 A, 58 P
  • Chris Kunitz: 27 G, 28A, 55 p

It’s clear that the Penguins have the talent and experience to make a deep playoff run this season, however there may be a need for a top five D-man. Adding to their Stanley Cup worries is starting goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury. Fleury has been unable to string together a solid playoff series over the past few seasons. However is this regular season is any indication the Penguins may be able to breathe a sigh of relief.

Starting Goaltender

Marc-Andre Fleury: 33-13-2-4, 2.23 GAA, .919 SV%
