Penguins just keep winning (and this time, Crosby scored)


The Pittsburgh Penguins haven’t always looked so hot … but the standings argue to the contrary.

Pittsburgh saw a 3-0 lead evaporate into a tense 3-2 situation against the Vancouver Canucks, but they managed to hold on nonetheless.

With that, the Penguins are now on a five-game winning streak, even with four of five on the road.

Going a little further, Pittsburgh has wins in eight of nine.

One big relief comes in Sidney Crosby scoring one of Pittsburgh’s goals, which prompted many to make jokes about “big boy pants.”

Honestly, Marc-Andre Fleury has been the go-to guy for the Penguins more than anyone else, and he had some strong moments in this one (albeit with the rare hiccup).

Let’s also face the fact that Eric Fehr‘s game-winner was the beauty of the game, which you can see above the headline.

Is everything perfect for the Penguins? Not necessarily.

Even so, it’s early, so the Penguins have time to work out their perceived issues. They have to be happy piling up points in the process.

Quick note: Daniel Sedin seemed shaken up late in the contest, so that’s something to monitor.
