Penguins' Crosby, Kunitz named postseason All-Stars

Penguins/NHL Videos

Wednesday, July 3, 2013, 12:51 p.m.
 

Penguins center Sidney Crosby and left wing Chris Kunitz were named first-team NHL All-Stars on Wednesday.

Now consider what Washington right wing Alex Ovechkin did.

Ovechkin was named the first-team right wing after leading the league in goals while playing a new position under coach Adams Oates.

However, some voters picked Ovechkin as a left wing, his former position. He received enough votes that he was voted to the second team as a left wing.

Members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association vote in a poll taken at the end of the regular season.

Penguins defenseman Kris Letang, who signed an eight-year, $58 million deal Tuesday, was named a second-team all-star.

Crosby finished with 56 points and held a large lead in the NHL scoring race before sustaining a broken jaw that forced him to miss his final 12 regular-season games.

Kunitz was named to a postseason all-star team for the first time.
