Chris Kunitz seems to have the Midas Touch when it comes to bringing out the best in the Penguins' star players.
Both Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin have enjoyed their best successes with Kunitz on their left side. For his part, Crosby loves playing with Kunitz. "He has a consistency about him," Crosby said. "He just does so many little things, maybe things that people don't always realize. He has the ability to create space for you. He is so good on the forecheck, and he's got that ability to use it to force turnovers and to open things up for me. And you know he's always going to the net." Look for Kunitz, who is third in NHL scoring with 31 points, to continue playing with Sid the Kid.
