New, comments

Mario Lemieux has been immortalized, Matt Hunwick is satisfied, and the Penguins’ PKers are putting the work in. All this and more in today’s Pens Points!

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

The Penguins do battle with the Avalanche tonight, one week removed from the 2-1 loss the Avs handed the Pens at PPG Paints Arena. Will the Penguins find ways to build upon their 4-2 win over the Coyotes? Only time will tell. With that said...

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

The Penguins don’t really feel like a Stanley Cup contender at the moment, let alone a locked playoff team. For whatever reason, be it fatigue or lack of depth, they haven't really showed many quality wins as a result. [Trib Live]

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]

News and notes from around the NHL...

The NHL is unlikely to hold an outdoor game in Canada in the 2018-19 season. [Sportsnet]

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. But perhaps one of the biggest changes to hockey came in relation to how the goaltenders played. [New York Times]
