2017 Stanley Cup — Pittsburgh Penguins young stars are filling the gaps

In Game 5 the Penguins were clicking on all cylinders.

The 7-0 rout, which moved Pittsburgh within one game of a return to the Stanley Cup finals, was a reminder of what the Penguins looks like at their best. It’s a mix of star power and key contributions coming from throughout the lineup. It’s winger Bryan Rust returning to action after an upper-body injury with jump, injecting the tired Penguins with a burst of energy they hadn’t felt in a while.

Sidney Crosby and the other Penguins stars can’t repeat all by themselves. Pittsburgh is a win away from a return trip to the Stanley Cup finals thanks to a next-man-up approach and newcomers like Carter Rowney who have shined this postseason.
