penguin scores

With two goals last night, rookie Jake Guentzel is now second all time in rookie playoff goals scored (12). He also overtook the record for the Penguins’ fastest playoff goal scored at ten seconds into a period. His second goal was his second game-winning goal in as many games, which helped him set a record for game-winning goals by a rookie in a single post-season (5). He is only the second rookie to notch consecutive GWGs since Roy Conacher did so in 1927. Guentzel currently holds the record for most playoff points scored by a U.S.-born rookie with nineteen. (x)
