The Pittsburgh Penguins shuffled their lines on Saturday and came away with a 4-2 win over the Blues.

Sidney Crosby had been in a bad slump as he had not had a point in nine of his previous 13 games before picking up an assist on Saturday. He lined up with Patric Hornqvist and David Perron while Chris Kunitz moved down to the Evgeni Malkin-Blake Comeau line. Hopefully this move will get the Penguins and Crosby out of their rut.

Sidney Crosby got into a fight with Brandon Dubinsky during Pittsburgh's 2-1 loss to Columbus on Thursday.

Crosby's goal total increased to 17 in this one-sided game. Crosby also notched his 39th assist of the season on the Pens' first goal of the game, scored by David Perron at 5:46 of the first period. It was Perron's 13th goal of the season. Brandon Sutter collected his 18th goal at 18:10 of the first period, giving the Pens a 2-0 lead before Crosby scored one goal in the second and one in the third. Perron also had an assist as he continues to prove his worth with the Pens. Perron, Crosby and Chris Kunitz were all plus-three on the night.

The Pittsburgh Penguins were shutout by the Nashville Predators by a score of 4-0 on Sunday.

Predators' goaltender Carter Hutton got the better of the Penguins high-powered offence today. Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby was held of the scoresheet for the fourth time in five games. Even if you factor in this small slump, Crosby still has 15 goals and 52 points in 46 games this season. He's still one of the best point-producers in the game.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have a record of 19-3-1 when they score a power play goal.

The Penguins' power play is clicking at 22.6 percent which is good for sixth-best in the NHL. Pittsburgh got off to a hot start on the man advantage, but they cooled off during a 24 game stretch where they went six for 67. Special teams are what make the difference come playoff time, and if the Penguins want to make a run they will need to be consistent in that area.

As it turns out, the lower body injury keeping Sidney Crosby from playing in Sunday's All-Star Game is real as he received an injection for it.

Said the Penguins, "Crosby had attempted to play through the injury the past two weeks.

He won't be soaking up the rays in perfect comfort after all.
