Ian Cole is now the proud owner of a two-game point streak.

Cole picked up a goal and an assist, giving him two goals and seven points in 24 games this season. In case you're wondering, his career high is four goals and 12 points, and he just may surpass it.

Schultz picked up a pair of helpers to bring his total up to seven for the season, and eight points. He now has 16 points in 42 games with the Penguins.

Eric Fehr collected his third goal of the season during Thursday's 6-2 win over the Stars.

Fehr now has five points in 24 games thus far. Through 79 games with the Penguins the veteran winger has just 19 points, so we wouldn't expect much more from him.
Dec 2 - 12:38 AM

Nick Bonino scored his second goal of the season during Thursday's 6-2 win over the Stars.

He's now up to nine points in 24 games this season. The veteran pivot had nine goals and 29 points in 64 games last go-round, but it doesn't seem like he'll hit that mark again.
Dec 2 - 12:37 AM

Marc-Andre Fleury played quite well during Thursday's 6-2 win over the Stars, his first win since Oct. 29th.

Fleury turned away 33 of 35 shots, including two of three on the kill. Wow, over a month and six games later. Ironically this is the first time since Oct. 27th he's allowed so few goals. Fleury is now 7-5-3 with a .904 save percentage and a 3.29 GAA.
Dec 2 - 12:34 AM

Jake Guentzel will be scratched against the Stars on Thursday.

The high-flying rookie has three goals and four points in five games so far along with 12 hits.
Dec 1 - 6:40 PM

Tom Sestito and Steve Oleksy will be healthy scratches Thursday against the Stars.

Sestito saw just three games in November with the last one being on Nov. 16th. With just eight games total for the wingers, and only one game played by Oleksy, neither appear to have much of a role with the club at this time.
Dec 1 - 6:39 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury will take on the Stars on Thursday night.

After a good October, Fleury fell apart in November. Going 0-3-2 with a 22 goals against with an .891 save percentage. However he's posted a .925 save percentage and five of his six wins at home in Pittsburgh, which bodes quite well for the struggling veteran.
Dec 1 - 5:52 PM

Matt Murray allowed four goals on 29 shots in a 5-3 loss to the New York Islanders on Wednesday.

The four goals are the most he has allowed in any game this season. Since returning from his broken hand, Murray has started in nine of 14 games, and has played great hockey. With the Pens killing a 5-3, he made a ridiculous sprawling save to deny John Tavares of a sure goal. The loss drops his record to 7-2-0, with a 2.02 goals against average and a .930 save percentage.
Nov 30 - 11:09 PM

Sidney Crosby picked up a couple of assists in a 5-3 loss to the New York Islanders on Wednesday.

Staring down a 3-0 hole entering the third period, Crosby first chased down a loose puck to set up Sheary, then forced Tavares to turn the puck over which led to Malkin's tying goal. The two assists now give Crosby 100 career points against the Islanders in just 57 career games. It is the first opponent he has reached this milestone against. He is now on pace for 98 points this season. This would be the most he has scored in a single season since he recorded 104 points in 2013-14.
