ESPN Falls for the Mike Johnston taser story

It was funny when the Score fell for it. But ESPN.COM? Over the weekend theScore got burned by this fake tweet: Four days later ESPN’s Katie Strang was none the wiser: All eyes are on Johnston, formerly of the Western Hockey League’s Portland Winterhawks, to see what he can do with the star-studded Penguins lineup.

NHL: Preseason-Detroit Red Wings at Pittsburgh Penguins


Had no idea Tony Granato was an assistant coach with the Wings. Biggest story of the night. Paul Martin didn’t seem concerned about playing, really. Penguins got a powerplay early in the third. Bennett and Sutter seem to be building chemistry. Farnham tried to fight some guy. Really strange performance by him. Spaling and Comeau […]

NHL: Preseason-Detroit Red Wings at Pittsburgh Penguins


Brutal to watch is the best way to explain the second period. Honestly, sucks we committed to writing in a notes-by-period format.

Look for the Penguins new third jersey on Friday

This kind of slipped under the radar. The Penguins new third jersey is going to be released for sale tomorrow: So, one would think we’ll get to see it. Rumors have swirled all year about it. As long as they aren’t blue, we’re in.


Never trust the Internet. The Score burned by a fake tweet.

First off, we love ” The Score.” It is one of the best sites out there for NHL coverage. But that doesn’t mean we can’t laugh at them. One of our good friends, @mikedarnay stunned the Internet when he tweeted this fake @penguins tweet: Funny stuff. The Score didn’t get the joke though: Whoops. No […]
