NHL: San Jose Sharks at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

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

Last night, the Penguins finally resumed play after the All-Star Game by welcoming the San Jose Sharks to town. After a 2-1 loss in San Jose just 11 days prior, the Penguins responded with two goals from Bryan Rust and a hat-trick from Evgeni Malkin. Matt Murray is also incredibly deserving of a shout-out after claiming his first win since returning to the team after the death of his father. This combination ended up producing a solid 5-2 win for Pittsburgh. [Recap]
