Because there ain’t no party like a Kessel Cup party. via GIPHY If you’re looking for a place to track all of the players’ days with the cup, there’s a blog for that already. It’s the anniversary of the day the Pens drafted Mario Lemieux and then Mario Lemieux kinda acted like he didn’t want […]

The Pens may be looking at some of the Jets' guns. Winnipeg Free Press Thanks to C.P. for the link.
For better or worse 2013 will be always be defined by this picture: And this gif: There was a lot of good hockey memories erased by a 4-0 series sweep at the hand of the Boston Bruins. 2013 will always be about what should've been and what didn't happen. It will be about a regular […]
Rob Scuderi was back, and the big outrage on the Internet was Deryk Engelland getting the call instead of Simon Despres. That debate and discussion will only get worse when Paul Martin’s return boots Bortuzzo up to the press box…and then Kris Letang returns. Knowing Bylsma’s track record, a healthy blue line could mean […]
Pittsburgh Penguins (28-11-1) @ Columbus Blue Jackets (17-17-4) Root Sports, FS-O – 6:00 pm/et Nationwide Arena – Columbus, OH The Pittsburgh Penguins meet the Columbus Blue Jackets as the Pens hit the halfway point of the season. This is also the Penguins' second-last game of 2013. Malkin practiced without contact today and Scuderi is "close" […]
Here’s the thing with the Penguins right now. They have six of the same player: Adams, Harry Z, Vitale, Glass, Conner, and Kobasew. While it isn't the greatest thing to watch, you know what you are getting. They limit the mistakes, they aren't horribly unreliable, and they can hang with low-end teams […]
This gif was shown on the Canes TV side, and says it all for Canes fans… The Pens' top six is four players right now. Sidney Crosby, Chris Kunitz, James Neal, and Jussi Jokinen. They accounted for seven points and produced most of the Pens' chances. Chris Conner scored a goal that we aren't even […]
Pittsburgh Penguins (27-11-1) @ Carolina Hurricanes (14-15-8) Root Sports, FS-CR – 7:00 pm/et PNC Arena, Raleigh, NC [Image via Venues Today] Brooks Orpik returns to the Penguins line-up. We're not sure who "The Code" specifies that he'll have to fight before he can play, but we're pretty sure it's someone. Tanner Glass is back as […]
Pascal Dupuis is going to have ACL surgery and he may miss the rest of the season. From the Penguins: Penguins winger Pascal Dupuis will undergo ACL surgery for his knee and could miss the rest of the season. Dupuis, 34, suffered the ACL injury Monday night in Ottawa after Sidney Crosby fell into his […]
Thanks to our good friend
In case you missed it from Monday Pascal Dupuis's knee got jacked… Looks like Bobby Mac knows it isn't good. I imagine PIT will update specifics of Pascal Dupuis' LBI soon but I'm hearing it's not good at all. Pens plagued by injury this season. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie)
http://youtube.com/watch?v=EbA_2G_7ens Merry Christmas Shawn Thornton. Commissioner Gary Bettman today upheld the 15-game suspension that was assessed to Boston Bruins forward Shawn Thornton by the Department of Player Safety for punching and injuring an unsuspecting opponent, Brooks Orpik of the Pittsburgh Penguins, in NHL Game No. 438 at Boston on Dec. 7.
Basically the Sens gave the Pens the business and didn't even have the courtesy to spread their cheeks. — Crosby got abused all game long. We usually have to wait until playoff time for Crosby to start getting physical attention, so this is probably a good thing; let him get used to it. […]
This midget is the only star of the game on either side. On second look, the bulge in the pants at the ankles is a dead giveaway. That's a normal-sized person.
Pittsburgh Penguins (27-10-1) @ Ottawa Senators (14-17-7) Root Sports, Sportsnet East, RDS – 7:30 pm/et Canadian Tire Centre – Kanata, ON [Image Via Wikipedia] Sorry for the terrible gameday post. It's December 23rd. According to the Penguins' website: "Fleury is starting in goal for Pittsburgh. The rest of the lineup will be game-time decisions, though […]

In June, someone from another fanbase, or Pittsburgh's 93.7 The Fan, will question whether or not Sidney Crosby is that great. And that's because they a) Don't understand hockey, and b) They didn't watch Game 38 of the season. Again, the Penguins have one basic NHL line. The rest is patchwork. Crosby putting up three […]
24/7 was awesome last night. One of the best scenes was Dion Phanuef and Crosby discussing some things: http://youtube.com/watch?v=hddxqb65YiM Puck Daddy broke it down. SID: “A guy runnin’ an elbow up through my head, that’s OK too, right?” DION: “Who did?” SID: “Kadri. [Explitive] dummy. Then he acts like he got shot.” DION: “You [expletive] […]
The Flames put up a hell of a fight. But it wasn't enough. The Penguins, playing in their final home regular-season game of 2013, held on to extend their winning streak to seven games and their home winning streak to 10 straight. Again, playing with one basic NHL line, the Pens found a way. Goals […]
Every game now, Crosby is doing something that just makes you go, wow. His goal against Karri Ramo in the second period does that:
