The view from Pittsburgh


Bill West: Penguins settle for 1 point after OT loss to Kings

“Their lead lasted just seven minutes, as Crosby connected with Kris Letang for a second time in the game to put the puck past Budaj. Letang faked a shot in the slot and snuck a pass through to the Penguins captain, who popped the puck off of Budaj’s glove and in.”

Jason Mackey: Sidney Crosby shines, but Penguins can’t dethrone Kings in 3-2 OT loss

“Crosby, who skated with a pair of new linemates in Carl Hagelin and Patric Hornqvist, has six goals in five games since a concussion delayed his start to the season.”

Josh Yohe: Crosby lone bright spot as Penguins fall in overtime

“Crosby scored two goals and dominated nearly every shift, but the rest of the Penguins were relatively lethargic and ultimately fell to the struggling Kings, 3-2, in overtime.”

Penguins vs. Kings recap: I (don’t) love LA. Pens lose in OT

“The Hagelin-Crosby-Hornqvist line (along with Letang, who is usually played with Crosby) are looking great. The other 3 lines? Not so much on this night.”
