The Pittsburgh Penguins are still dangerous, even without their superstar captain Sidney Crosby.
The Penguins finished with 106 points in the Eastern Conference and ended up second in the Atlantic Division, losing a tiebreaker to the Flyers.
The Penguins scored 238 goals this season, but found their success by having the best penalty kill in the NHL.
The defense, along with Marc-Andre Fleury, have been a key to the Penguins 2010-2011 achievement.
Sidney Crosby only played in 41 games this season, and still leads the team in points and goals.
Coach Dan Bylsma has stated that he does not expect Crosby to be in the lineup for the team's postseason opener, but if Crosby can come back for the second round and so on, the Penguins quickly become the most dangerous team in the postseason.
Pittsburgh will host the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round.
