The Pittsburgh Penguins have injuries with Justin Schultz and Kris Letang on defense yet they managed to score a 7-0 shutout. The defense is not what you call a starlight group of NHL defencemen. It only has Olli Maata, Scot Wilson, and Bryan Rust all these guys on the Pens rally around to make the Penguins a better team despite all the injuries.

You remember what happened to the San Jose Sharks last year in the NHL Finals? The Speed of the Penguins are amazing. So you look at the power plays of the games last night three out of  three for the Pens. On the penalty killing the Penguins own the Senators 0-29. That is just amazing considering the bulk of the Pens defense is out of action with Schultz and Letang.
