The Pittsburgh Penguins have had a rollercoaster of a start to their season. They first started off winning almost every game with a lethal powerplay, until injuries struck. Coach Mike Johnston was able to keep the team together and (for the most part) winning consistently. However, in the last two weeks the wheels fell off the train. The Pittsburgh Penguins were on a four game losing streak which was finally snapped last night in a 2-1 win against the Carolina Hurricanes.
