Team minus stars showing signs of resiliency like last year.
In the midst of a grueling road stretch with more games crammed into the first two weeks than any other NHL team, the team is still showing heart without many of their stars. They got 8 out of a possible 10 points in the first 5 games, and followed up two close 1 goal losses, with a solid victory in Minnesota without arguably their top FOUR most important players in the lineup (Crosby's concussion, Malkin's lower body injury, Letang's suspension, and Fleury sitting out the second game on back-to-back nights). Great to see grinder-types like Kunitz, Staal, and Neal getting gritty goals, and also for Dupuis to answer their short-handed goal with a shorty of his own.
