Not a lot needs to be explained here. If you’ve watched the Penguins during either of these last two playoffs runs, then you know exactly what I’m talking about. Nick Bonino in game six against Washington last year. Chris Kunitz in game seven last series. Bryan Rust in every game seven that he’s ever taken part in.
The Penguins are filled with depth players that flourish as the games get more and more meaningful and that’s a big reason why they’re in the finals for the second straight season.
