NHL: Colorado Avalanche at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Here are your Pens Points for this Monday morning...

It was announced over the weekend that Mario Lemieux’s five goals in five ways has been chosen as the NHL’s greatest moment. [Trib Live]

The Penguins’ penalty-killing unit has certainly been getting its fair share of ice time, for better or for worse. [Post-Gazette]

Matt Hunwick has been pleased with his play since retuning from his concussion. [Post-Gazette]

When the NHL was formed 100 years ago, it took upon a much different shape than it does today. As with the progression of all sports, rules are often changed and updated to reflect the game in a more logical, fair, or exciting fashion.
