Notes[edit]

  1. ^ A running total of the number of coaches of the Penguins. Thus any coach who has two separate terms as head coach is only counted once.
  2. ^ Per the 2004–05 NHL lockout no games result in a tie, instead teams receive one point for a loss in overtime. Craig Patrick served before and after the rule change, and his record is presented as W–L–T–OTL.
