The loss of right wing Pascal Dupuis (knee) has been a damaging blow to the Pens' penalty-killing unit.
With Dupuis in the lineup, the Penguins killed 87.5 percent of their penalties, which was on pace to give Pittsburgh's its second-best penalty-killing season in franchise history. Without Dupuis, who sustained a season-ending injury Dec. 23, the Pens have killed just 82.5 percent of their penalties. The penalty-killing unit has deteriorated since the Olympics. "We were very good up until then," Craig Adams said. Adams said he believes the Pens' penchant for turning the puck over is the primary reason for the decline in penalty kill percentage. Defenseman Brooks Orpik's turnover led to Columbus center Mark Letestu's power-play goal in Game 1 of the first-round series Wednesday. "We aren't getting clears when we have the chance," Adams said. "There will always be times when it's a 50/50 situation and you get the puck out. But there have been times when we have clear control and we're still not getting it out. That's a problem."

The Penguins were allowing an average of 2.18 goals per game before right winger Pascal Dupuis had a season-ending knee injury Dec. 23 in Ottawa.

Beginning with a 5-0 loss against the Senators that night, however, they have been giving up an average of 3.23 goals a game. "He’s a responsible two-way forward," defenseman Matt Niskanen said. "For [the first] line, I think he helped a lot in that regard. "A lot of times you’d see him be a defensively responsible high forward who picked guys up on the backcheck. He was really good at that. There might be some correlation between the numbers."

Pascal Dupuis (knee) has yet to undergo surgery on his torn ACL.

Surgery is likely to come very soon, and it's very likely that the veteran winger will miss the rest of the season. Dupuis has 20 points in 39 games this season.
Jan 11 - 9:12 PM

Pascal Dupuis, who will have ACL knee surgery and is likely out for the rest of the season, was a top-line fit for Penguins captain Sidney Crosby.

Finding wingers who mesh with Crosby has proven a great challenge over the years, as his style – skilled grinder with speed and a backhand preference – does not easily fit with traditional scoring wingers. Few acquisitions by Pens GM Ray Shero have meshed instantly with Crosby, with Bill Guerin (2009) being an exception. Dupuis has 20 points in 39 games this season, but his chemistry with Crosby with be something that Pittsburgh will miss.
