The view from Pittsburgh


Dave Molinari: Penguins power past Kings, 3-0

“Kunitz gave the Penguins the only goal they would need at 9:16 of the opening period, when he steered an Evgeni Malkin feed past Los Angeles goalie Martin Jones on a five-on-three advantage.”

Seth Rorabaugh: Kings at Penguins – 10-30-14

“If the Penguins were missing Sidney Crosby, Chris Kunitz, Brandon Sutter as well as Paul Martin while also starting Thomas Greiss, they would a lesser team as well.”


Josh Yohe: Fleury, Penguins too much for Kings

“The Penguins produced an impressive impersonation of the Kings, beating them at their own game. It was a physical, sometimes hostile affair, the kind of game the Penguins haven’t thrived in during recent seasons.”

Rob Rossi: The best Penguins defense is … a potent offense

“It might not be possible for an offensive-minded team to win the Cup, but it’s certainly impossible to believe the Penguins will win it again without trying to outscore opponents in the playoffs. This team, even with a 40-percent overhaul by Rutherford, remains built to fill the net.”


Mike Darnay: GIF-Cap: Penguins Shutout the LA Kings 3-0

“All in all, a good win for the Penguins. The power play is just lightning in a bottle. With a 3-0 lead, the Penguins closed out the game in successful fashion, which was nice to see, against a team like the LA Kings who can stifle you with their puck possession.”



“Finally in the third period, Malkin had had enough and went after Jason Williams. They had a battle but not enough of a battle to warrant 5-minute fighting majors for either of them.”
