WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In a Super Bowl Sunday matinee that featured superstars Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Alex Ovechkin, it was Chris Kunitz who stole the spotlight, scoring a hat trick to send the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 6-3 victory over the Washington Capitals. Paul Martin, Matt Cooke and Kris Letang also scored for the Penguins, who are on their first three-game winning streak of the season and only one point behind the Eastern Conference leading Boston Bruins. The Capitals (2-6-1) lost for the seventh time in nine games, but remain only three points out of a playoff spot. More concerning for the Capitals is the fact that after nine games Ovechkin has only four points, with two power-play goals and two assists. He has only one even-strength point. Before Sunday's game Ovechkin said he was embarrassed by his offensive numbers. The Penguins had the Capitals chasing the entire game. Pittsburgh opened the scoring for the eighth time in nine games when defenseman...

This might be the easiest goal John Carlson will ever score in his NHL career. Carlson dumped the puck in off the glass, hoping to get the puck in deep so his team could make a line change. Pittsburgh goaltender Tomas Vokoun left his crease, ready to play the puck behind the net only to find the puck had taken an awkward bounce off a stanchion, sending it directly at the now empty...

He was involved in two of the highest profile trades in Penguins history. What’s more, he’s ranked sixth on the team’s all-time list of highest scoring defensemen. Yet many Steel City hockey fans seem to have all but forgotten Moe Mantha, who arguably was the team’s best blue-liner at the dawn of the Mario Lemieux era.
