Ten players have suited up for all 13 games thus far, including:
James Neal, Matt Cooke, Pascal Dupuis, Chris Kunitz, Matt Niskanen, Joe Vitale, Deryk Engelland, Steve Sullivan, Paul Martin and Craig Adams.

The Penguins roster of defensemen posed a problem when training camp opened last month: Too many players on NHL contracts. Matt Niskanen, a 24-year-old who looked a step behind after being acquired from Dallas in February, seemed to be the most likely odd man out. Then, Niskanen started turning heads.
Center Jordan Staal was involved in two collisions in the past two home games against the Islanders and Devils but did not leave the game on either occasion. Coach Dan Bylsma is expected to update the situation soon.
As Sidney Crosby gets closer to returning from the concussion that has prevented him from playing since Jan. 5, it's worth pointing out that he won't necessarily be the same player. Not immediately, anyway.

Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury is clearly among the NHL's elite performers, and when it comes to working overtime, he only gets better.
One of the words of the decade is the word of the day for Jonas Gustavsson.
Tonight against the Pittsburgh Penguins Gustavsson makes his fourth consecutive start for James Reimer, a victim o...
The Penguins wiped out three one-goal deficits at the Air Canada Centre tonight, but couldn't overcome a fourth as they lost to Toronto, 4-3.
If you picked up on anything from the first two periods it was that James Neal was determined to put one in the net, finally he did. So because of that you get the return of: Chris Kunitz was also able to pot his third of the season, which is even less surprising then James [...]
