Aston-Reese fitting in on Malkin and Kessel's line

by Mark Madden / Pittsburgh Penguins

When asked about Zach Aston-Reese getting a chance to play on a line with Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel, Colby Amstrong said, "It can be a little intimidating for a guy like Zach."

Armstrong would know. Armstrong used to be that guy.

Armstrong was a Penguin from 2005-08. He spent much of that time skating on a line with Sidney Crosby.

Armstrong made the most of it. He and Crosby were NHL rookies at the same time and meshed well.

He thinks Aston-Reese can do the same with Malkin and Kessel.

Thoughts, musings and observations from the Pens' 4-3 overtime win against the Los Angeles Kings at PPG Paints Arena…

* The biggest news of the day wasn't related to the game at all. It was the update on defenseman Kris Letang, who suffered an ugly lower-body injury against Boston on Friday night.

Letang is listed as day-to-day, a huge relief to the team. As head coach Mike Sullivan noted, "It could have been a lot worse. We'll take each day as it comes."

WWII Vet and Coors Light Fan Shares Secret to Longevity

by Staff Writer / Pittsburgh Penguins

Andrew Slavonic, a 101-year-old World War II veteran from McMurray, says his secret to a long life is drinking a Coors Light every day at 4 p.m. 

Slavonic said in a recent interview with FOX News that he sometimes has multiple beers in a day, "but the one at 4 o'clock is the most important one." 

The Penguins saluted the Air Force veteran for his service by hosting Andrew and some of his family members at tonight's game against Los Angeles at PPG Paints Arena.

After Andrew received a personalized Penguins jersey from Iceburgh, former Penguins player Colby Armstrong hand-delivered a cold Coors Light during the first period, telling Andrew, "It's always 4 o'clock somewhere!"

Andrew and his son, Bob, watched the game from the "Coors Light Silver Seats." Coors Light is an official beer partner of the Penguins.

Rust breaks slump with hat trick

by Sam Kasan @PensInsideScoop / Pittsburgh Penguins

CHICAGO, Illinois - It would have been easy to lose hope. 

Bryan Rust went 21 consecutive games without scoring a goal, and only had one tally in the opening 29 games of the season for Pittsburgh. 

"Try to stay positive," he said of the slump. "Any time you don't play as well as you like or things don't go your way for a long period of time it can be frustrating. You just have to stick with it, and try to remain as positive as possible." 

Positive he remained. Persist he did. Results he earned.
