The Penguins have given up 10 goals in the two games since the end of the Olympic break. That’s an alarming number no matter the reason.

Unfortunately for Brandon, these comparisons never stop - even when he was named the Player of the...
Brandon Sutter realizes his role as a checking-line center won't be changing with his new team, the Pittsburgh Penguins. He does have reason to believe it's a job that might have become a little easier.
