In June, someone from another fanbase, or Pittsburgh's 93.7 The Fan, will question whether or not Sidney Crosby is that great. And that's because they a) Don't understand hockey, and b) They didn't watch Game 38 of the season.
Again, the Penguins have one basic NHL line. The rest is patchwork. Crosby putting up three points is impressive enough, but his overall game is what stuck out in this one. He was relentless in both ends of the ice against the Flames. Complete leadership package. There really isn't a ton more to even say.
As for the Penguins as a whole, this was an interesting stat:
#Pens went 15-0 from games 22-36 last season. From games 22-36 this season, 12-2-1. Meaningful stuff.— James A. Conley (@Slew_James) December 20, 2013
The Pens are rolling. They lead the Metro by 13 points, have won seven straight, and they haven't lost at home in 10 games. They are one point off the NHL's best record. And this is all with a new defense and a ton of AHL forwards.
