When Penguins GM Ray Shero acquired Harry Zolnierczyk from Anaheim last summer for minor-league defenseman Alex Grant, I thought it was a terrific move. Given the departures of Matt Cooke and Tyler Kennedy, I figured “Dirty Harry” could fill an energy role on the third or fourth line, with the potential to put up Kennedy-type numbers.
And he has. At Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. In...
It’s hard to say whether the Penguins have what it takes to win the Stanley Cup. Conventional wisdom says GM Ray Shero has some holes to fill—especially on the third line. While the team’s championship pedigree may be in question, its heart and soul are not.
The Penguins displayed plenty of both against a surprisingly spirited Buffalo squad at First Niagara Center on Wednesday...

Everybody's talkin' 'bout the Olympics. Even Rinko.
Letang is still out. Kunitz and Niskanen are questionable. Zolnierczykskakzkwkazachyk has been called up.
STATS, INFO & NOTES:
Harry Zolnierczyk of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in the AHL scored a beauty of a goal against the Syracuse Crunch on Wednesday night. It was a brilliant individual effort on an almost end-to-end rush that saw him beat four Crunch players by himself. Definitely one of the best goals you will see from the minors all season.

When you combine a determined puck handler with some seriously shoddy defense, you end up with a highlight like this.
Pittsburgh Penguins winger Harry Zolnierczyk, currently playing with the team’s AHL affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, beat not one, not two, but all five Syracuse Crunch skaters Wednesday night for one of the more impressive goals of the season.

The Penguins line-up doesn't look much better today. Malkin is skating, but he'll be out for at least the next two games. In our minds, we imagine that the WBS Penguins coaching staff is just staring into their locker room with tears in their eyes.

As the camera gave a bunch of Penguins some face time during the anthems, it felt like we were Experiencing the Evolution all over again. That feeling was punctuated watching the Penguins lines being introduced. Harry Zolnierczyk was on the second line. THE SECOND LINE.
The Pens were missing over half of their salary in this one. And Bylsma probably was...
