The Pittsburgh Penguins have a special opportunity in this year’s postseason. The Penguins are trying to become the first NHL team in 35 years to three-peat. The early 80’s New York Islanders were the last club to accomplish the feat, winning four straight Cups from 1980-83.
If the players are feeling any pressure about that challenge, they’re not letting it show – even with the news of Evgeni Malkin and Carl Hagelin being out injured for Game One. During Wednesday’s practice, Penguins goaltender Matt Murray took time to work on his batting swing.
