Chris Kunitz News Archive
Kunitz potted his first short-handed goal of the season -- and fifth in 11 NHL seasons -- Tuesday against Philadelphia.
Kunitz snapped a three-game scoreless slump with a power-play goal -- the game-winner -- and an assist in Tuesday's win over the Wild.
After a demotion to the team's third line in late December, coach Mike Johnston has returned Kunitz to the left wing spot next to Sidney Crosby in recent games.
Kunitz skated on Pittsburgh's third line Saturday with Brandon Sutter and Beau Bennett, going pointless with two shots and a minus-1 rating.
Kunitz captured his 11th goal of the season and added an assist in Wednesday's 2-1 victory over the Hurricanes.
