2013: Where our demons hide

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 […]

RECAP: Game 41. Pens beat Jackets 5-3.

  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 […]

RECAP: Game 40. Pens beat Canes 4-3 in OT.

      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 […]

Here is why Pascal Dupuis is going to be out a really long time

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)

Shawn Thornton Still Suspended 15 Games Merry Christmas Shawn Thornton.

RECAP: Game 39. Sens beat Pens 5-0.

  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. […]

QUICK CAP: Pens winning streak ends

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.

RECAP: Game 38. Pens win 4-3

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 […]

VIDEO: Sidney Crosby and Dion Phanuef’s discussion from 24/7

24/7 was awesome last night. One of the best scenes was Dion Phanuef and Crosby discussing some things: 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] […]

QUICK CAP: Red Hot. Pens keep winning.

GIF: Crosby picks a corner

Every game now, Crosby is doing something that just makes you go, wow. His goal against Karri Ramo in the second period does that:
