Penguins’ HBK line dominates the Stanley Cup playoffs
Though Sidney Crosby won the Conn Smythe Trophy for the Pittsburgh Penguins, you could very easily make the argument that the team’s HBK Line were the real postseason MVPs.
The HBK Line, comprised of Carl Hagelin, Nick Bonino and Phil Kessel, combined for 56 points in the postseason, including 11 during the Stanley Cup Finals.
Here’s their individual breakdown:
– Hagelin: 6 goals, 16 points
– Bonino: 4 goals, 18 points
– Kessel: 10 goals, 22 points
Who knew that Evgeni Malkin’s injury would lead to Bonino stepping in and making that line truly click? And let’s also give a ton of credit to GM Jim Rutherford, who acquired both Hagelin and Kessel within the last year.
