Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Red Fisher at The Gazette:
For now, at least, is there a better team in the NHL than Pittsburgh?
Mention Washington’s 6-0 record and you get no argument from anyone until, that is, the Penguins’ 5-2-2 record is mentioned despite missing their four best players.
Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby, Tyler Kennedy and Kris Letang didn’t dress for Thursday’s 3-1 victory over the Canadiens – yet the Pens found something, somewhere to persevere while playing their third game in four nights. The game was Pittsburgh’s ninth in 15 days. No Penguins team has played more games in fewer days to start a season, so how impressive is that?
Add this: the Penguins have picked up at least one point in all but two games this season.
