We had the Pittsburgh Penguins ranked pretty low in our watchability-excitability rankings and they are quite frankly, making us look bad. Despite losing Evgeni Malkin to an upper-body injury, the Penguins have won four straight and coming off a big win at home over the Colorado Avalanche. Sidney Crosby is picking up the slack from his running mate’s absence by getting on the scoresheet in all seven of the Penguins games. If he records a point in Friday’s game with the Dallas Stars, he’ll tie his personal best point streak to start a season.
