They could definitely play this way for the rest of the year and playoffs...but only if the opposition lets them ! I'm pretty sure that sooner or later guys will be paying a lot more attention to both Crosby and Letang & Malkin much more intensely and will be laying on the body at every opportunity available .

The level of compete and nastiness is about to rise and those guys are quite prone to injury if they endure a steady parade of vicious but clean hits . We also will see the same on our guys like Staal-Richards-Gabby who will have to have the head on a swivel from here on out .

The new and real season is about to begin and I would be very shocked if the Penguins don't have one major injury before the playoffs start as they are going to be big targets for opposing & competing teams in the Conference .
