Thoughts: Game 50 – Quick Start Not Enough as Pittsburgh/WBS Loses to Tampa, 6-3.

Lightning 6  Pens 3 Record: 25-18-7, 57 pts Goals Hornqvist (11) from Kunitz, Pouliot Crosby (21) from Kunitz, Hornqvist Cullen (6) from Kessel Penalties Letang (roughing) – Stupid (takes a high elbow to the face from Filppula during a puck battle, then retaliates by dropping his stick and pushing Filppula in the back twice, then […]


GAME 50 RECAP: Broken Down Fleury

Here’s how the game went in one pic: It felt like the Pens had no chance in Hell of winning this game. People were freaking out that Malkin was out for maybe two games and that Eric Fehr is gonna be out for a month. It’s far from the end of the world. The Florida […]


Thoughts: Game 49 – Crosby’s Natural Hat Trick Puts Away Senators in 6-5 Win

GAME 49 RECAP: Saved by the Crossbar. Penguins hold on for another W

Remember back when the Penguins got Phil Kessel over the summer and everyone thought there would be games like 6-5 every night. And then Mike Johnston ruined hockey for half the year? Knowing the NHL like we think we do, this game is probably a foreshadowing of what the next 33 games are going to […]

The Sudden Death II story we never finished

So back in 2010 we, Rick City, and Stephen S started talking about making a story about Sudden Death II. When we (Derek and Adam) started the blog long ago, we did a story called “Jobbers.” We always wanted to do another story. By then we had become friends with Stephen S. What people don’t […]

All Star Gameday Live Thread

The All Star Game is being live streamed on Malkin and Letang will play in the first game. Actually looking forward to this game for some reason.

during the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Skill Competition at Bridgestone Arena on January 30, 2016 in Nashville, Tennessee.

The All-Star Skills Competition was actually pretty cool

We don’t know about you, but growing up NHL fans, watching the All-Star Skills Competition was always a major highlight. Because of technology now, we get to see players every night that 20 years ago we’d only get to see during the playoffs. Over the years it has lost it’s luster. But for some reason […]

Evgeni Malkin’s Players Tribune fill in the blank is amazing

Everyday the Players Tribune gets better and better. Today is no different. They handed Evgeni Malkin a blank card with some questions. And the answers were amazing. [ The Players Tribune ] Malkin’s answers were very interesting and his handwriting is actually really good too. His most interesting answer was that he thought Patrick Marleau […]
