Penguins finding groove ahead of visit from Sharks

The Pittsburgh Penguins might finally be figuring out who they are and how they need to play.

Entering Thursday's home game against the San Jose Sharks, the Penguins seemingly fluctuate nightly between being on the cusp of missing the playoffs and vying for the title in the tight Metropolitan Division, but they like what they've seen lately.

Pittsburgh (32-21-7, 71 points) has won four of its past five games. In particular, a 4-3 win Tuesday at New Jersey seemed to offer a good blueprint.
