Crosby and Malkin both out of the All Star game

If there was any chance you watching the All-Star game, they got significantly less with this news. [ NHL ] This is probably a good thing. Crosby and Malkin get almost a week off to rest. Can’t wait till a national writer calls for one of them to be suspended for not participating in All Star […]

#tbt The Hossa trade

So we were talking to someone about all the old photoshops we have, and they suggested we use some for throw back thursday. Probably the best idea in years. Since the Hossa topic came up in the recap, we found this one in the Hossa trade post. [ TPB.blogspot ] How terrible was it when […]


RECAP: Game 46. The Ghost of Rex Gildo.

NBCSN tried to bill this as a rivalry night, but they were a day late. It was a matchup of two of the elite teams in the league, and that was about it. PLOT TWIST: Penguins had key players injured. Again. Malkin and Letang were both MIA, and there was no Maatta and no Hornqvist. […]

What the Hell Happened: Valiant effort, but Pens fall in a shootout

With things being what they are, it is hard to find a ton of faults in this game. The Penguins got bad news before the game with both Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin out. After a slow start, the Penguins were able to push back with goals from the hapless Zac Sill, and Steve Downie. […]

Report: Kris Letang might have a concussion

Darren Dreger first reported this during the Pens/Hawks game.  [ TheScore ] Letang, who has suffered a few concussions in the past, did not play in the Penguins final game before the all-star break. As for the guy that hit him, Zac Rinaldo will have a hearing with the NHL on Monday, and he waived […]


RECAP: Game 45. Shit.

Got news for you. The Pens were out-shot 40-35 in this game. They were out-hit 40-31. They were out-scored 3-2. The Pens went 0 for 6 on the power play. And we’re still seeing more good than bad from this game. It’s tough to swallow right now, especially on the back end of losing three […]

What the Hell Happened: Pens show life, but Flyers still own.

Well, this was fun: http://youtu.be/r2vxPOh9K7Y Really struggling with this game because there are negatives and positives to deal with. We don’t watch “In The Room,” so, to us, this was the first time the Penguins felt like a team.  In a second period that played out like a circus where the clowns light people on […]
