5-2 Penguins
GWG: Sidney Crosby

The Penguins look unstoppable at the moment, winning two games on the weekend by a combined 11-2. Ottawa puts up a decent fight before being overwhelmed.

Record: 43-35, 48 Points
1 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

4-1 Penguins
GWG: Beau Bennett

I picked obscure goal scorers for the whole season so I might as well end with some. The Penguins look like the team we all thought they’d be at the start of the year, even sans Malkin and now Fleury.

Record: 39-39, 46 Points
6 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Penguins
GWG: Sidney Crosby

Just going through the motions tonight. A wounded Pens squad makes the score look more respectable.

Record: 41-37, 46 Points
3 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals

4-3 Penguins
GWG: Sidney Crosby

So the Jays are back. That’s pretty cool.

Record: 42-36, 55 Points
7 Exact Scores, 6 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Penguins
GWG: Sidney Crosby

Even with the injuries that the Penguins have... the Sens don't stand a chance.

Record: 39-39, 46 Points
3 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

4-3 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

The individual milestones continue to add up as Ottawa plays their first game of the final week of the regular season.

Record: 12-6, 15 Points
1 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals

4-1 Penguins
GWG: Phil Kessel

The Penguins have turned into the team we all thought they'd be and for a Sens team with nothing to play for that spells a bad game

Record: 37-41, 43 Points
3 Exact Scores, 3 Game Winning Goals

4-1 Penguins
GWG: Phil Kessel

You know, I've grown to like Kessel quite a bit since he left the Leafs and then the whole city of Toronto turned on him.

Record: 36-42, 38 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

5-3 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

This Penguins team is so banged up, and we say this every single year. Expect this to a high scoring event with lots of entertainment.

Record: 36-42, 48 Points
5 Exact Scores, 7 Game Winning Goals
