The Panthers are another one of those teams that always seem to give the Penguins trouble.
Think of two of Sidney Crosby's fights (here and here.)

There is something about the Florida Panthers that frequently frustrates the Pittsburgh Penguins.

And it's not just the rats.


The Penguins are going for their seventh win in a row tonight.



Mike "Leadership" Richards isn't talking to the media.

"Richards has vowed to freeze out the media. He is upset because of stories generated after former teammate Joffrey Lupul, now with Anaheim, was asked recently if he thought he was traded because the Flyers wanted to break up the players who live in Center City and enjoy the night life."

Meanwhile, Sidney "Doesn't deserve to be a captain in the NHL and isn't respected by anyone in the league" Crosby is involved with the NHLPA.

"When Sidney Crosby spoke up, the world changed for the embattled NHL Players' Association.

It was the 22-year-old Crosby, arguably the highest-profile player in the sport today, who raised his voice last Sunday on a union conference call and firmly told interim executive director Ian Penny to hang up the phone because union members wanted to have a players-only discussion."


Penguins Lines:

Goligoski and Letang will man the blue line on the first unit.


Mario Lemieux has been named the 16th best athlete golfer by Golf Digest.
He sits right behind John Elway and Brett Favre and just ahead of Mike Modano and John Smoltz.
Richards and Ovechkin will one day top that list due to their leadership, passion and extensive time spent golfing every spring.



Gonchar's out.  The defensive pairings and powerplay units have been modified.  Brent Johnson is in goal.
Lots of changes.
We hope things "Kliq" tonight.


Do it.

Go Pens.
