Kühnhackl expands winning streak with Pittsburgh
Tom Kühnhackl and the Pittsburgh Penguins set course for the playoffs and conquers the lead of the Metropolitan Division. Another star also convinces.
National ice hockey player Tom Kühnhackl and defending champions Pittsburgh Penguins take up more and more momentum in the NHL a month before the start of the playoffs. The five-time Stanley Cup winner celebrated his third consecutive 5-2 victory at the Philadelphia Flyers and conquered the lead in the Metropolitan Division’s standings (NHL tables).
Kühnhackl came to Philadelphia in about twelve minutes of ice age, but couldn’t contribute a single point to the pens’ victory – in contrast to superstar Sidney Crosby. The 30-year-old scored three assists and thus has exactly 1100 career points on his account. However, Crosby’s Canadian compatriot Wayne Gretzky’s record is still a long way off, with “The Great One” scoring 2857 points (schedule and results of the NHL).
