Pittsburgh Penguins 3rd Quarter Results

The Pittsburgh Penguins finished up Game #61 last night and are now officially 75% through the 2013-14 season. So how have they looked through this most recent stretch of 20 games?

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Last night was the 61st game of the 2013-14 NHL season for our Pittsburgh Penguins, so they are now 3/4 through. That means it is once again time to take a look at the team's performance through the most recent group of 20 games. You can check back and see how they did in the 1st Quarter and 2nd Quarter if you would like a refresher.

Through 61 games this year, 75% of the season up to this point, the Pens have gone 41-16-4 and currently sit at #1 in the East with 86 points. They are just 3 Points ahead of Boston for the Conference lead, but have a commanding 16 point lead over the other teams in their Division, with a game in hand to boot. Overall they currently sit at #3 in the NHL, just 2 points behind St. Louis as well as 5 points behind Anaheim who has a game in hand.

Even with the Pens recent struggles they are still a comfortable #4 in the NHL with both 195 Goals For and 150 Goals Against, as well at their +45 Goal Differential. The Pens also still hold the #1 Power Play unit at 24.9% and are #2 on the Penalty Kill with a 86.7 PK%. As a team they have barely broken even at the faceoff dot and are #12 in the league with a 50.9 FO%. And perhaps even more important is that they are still #1 in the league with 363 Man Games Lost.
