Penguins Update: Stempniak Provides a Spark

Lately the Pittsburgh Penguins haven’t had a whole lot to write home about. The black and gold is mired in an ugly 2-4-1 funk. They’re a mediocre 6-6-2 since the Olympic break. With superstar Evgeni Malkin (sprained foot) joining the ranks of the wounded, the injury bug continues to take a wicked toll.
