Without goal, Penguins' Crosby trusts 'puck will go in'

Friday, 04.25.2014 / 4:52 PM / Penguins vs Blue Jackets - 2014 SCP First Round

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins forwards Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin do not have a goal through four games of their Eastern Conference First Round series against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Penguins do not expect that scoring drought to last much longer with the 2-2 series heading into Game 5 at Consol Energy Center on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS, FS-O, ROOT).

The Penguins' inability to hold on to multiple-goal leads in its two losses in the Stanley Cup Playoffs has turned attention toward the underwhelming play of their two primary stars.

Crosby, who finished the season as the NHL scoring champion with 104 points, has failed to score a goal in nine postseason games. He has five assists in those games, but was held without a point while being swept by the Boston Bruins during last year's Eastern Conference Final.

"I think [during] playoff time, you want to score no matter what," Crosby said. "You want to score every game, but it's a lot easier said than done. I think you just trust the puck will go in. I think the main thing is that you're getting chances. I think when you're getting a lot of chances and sometimes they're not going in, eventually they will and they'll come in bunches.

"But personally, I feel like I'd like to get a few more chances to feel comfortable."

Grand Rapids continues to fuel Red Wings' success

Friday, 04.25.2014 / 2:41 PM / AHL Update

Alyssa Dombrowski - Special to NHL.com

The Detroit Red Wings are in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the 23rd consecutive year despite a series of injuries that plagued them throughout the 2013-14 regular season. That accomplishment can be attributed in large part to the reinforcements provided by their American Hockey League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins.

Thirteen members of the 2013 Calder Cup champion Griffins have skated for Detroit this season, including impact players such as defensemen Danny DeKeyser and Brian Lashoff, and forwards Tomas Tatar and Gustav Nyquist, the latter of whom led the Red Wings with 28 goals. Several others, including Nyquist and forwards Tomas Jurco, Luke Glendening and Riley Sheahan, spent time in Grand Rapids again this season.

The Griffins and Red Wings, whose affiliation began in 2002, have fostered a model relationship between an AHL team and its parent NHL club.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
