The lockout-shortened season hasn’t slowed the Pittsburgh Penguins, who are off to a stellar 7-3-0 start. It took a while for them to completely click, but it seems as if the Penguins’ top-six is claiming its rightful spot among the NHL’s most offensively-potent forwards.
Their lineup boasts Evgeni Malkin—the reigning Art Ross and Hart Trophy recipient—Sidney Crosby, James Neal, Chris Kunitz and plenty of other offensively-gifted forwards.
Combine that with the ever-improving offensive contribution from the blue line and the Penguins will be a fearsome opponent throughout the abbreviated season.
