Why the Pens game will sell out tonight

The Pens have sold out some 300-plus consecutive home games, which is pretty impressive, although the Penguins themselves write the rules on what they consider to be a sellout. Anyway, tonight is guaranteed to be a sellout because the Maple Leafs have overtaken the Penguins as the best road draw in the NHL. The Pens […]

RECAP: Game 34. Pens win 4-1.

  The big news BEOFRE the game was that Letang wasn’t going to be dressed, which meant the Pens were without all of their top four defensemen. Holy Hell. It meant that Deryk Engelland and Matt Niskanen were the leaders on the blue line.   The big news DURING the game was this: http://youtube.com/watch?v=yOSKfPB0_-c   […]

QUICK CAP: Pens give the Wings the business

All of the feels happened in this game. With no Letang, the Pens were dead men walking. Then it got worse when they lost Engelland. All they did was shut the door and keep scoring goals. Oh, and Malkin hit the boards awkwardly and left the game, so there's that, too. Pens win 4-1. OUR […]

    The Penguins are a staggering 22-10-1, 7-2-1 in their last 10. They’re beginning to pull away in the Metro Division again.    The current top six is Crosby, Malkin, Kunitz, Megna, Jokinen and the remains of Pascal Dupuis. The defense is riddled with injuries. And yet they just keep winning games.  A rather […]

QUICK CAP: Pens hang on to beat Devils

The Pens looked like they were all-in, jumping on the Devils for 3 goals in the first. But then the rest of the game happened. The Devils scored 2 quick ones in the second to match the Pens' surge, and the Devils outshot the Pens 32-11 over the final two periods. But the Devils just […]

Five Thoughts on the Penguins stadium jerseys

Hot off the press…   1, No blue, this could change the fortunes of outdoor games. 2. We would actually purchase this jersey. Looks smooth. 3. They made it simple, and didn't overthink it. 4. Kind of like the stripes on the sides. Is that a different gold we wonder? 5. Overall this is a […]

The Pittsburgh Penguins’ Stadium Series Jersey is Revealed

Because you can't have an outdoor game without including the Pittsburgh Penguins somehow, here is their jersey. Honestly, we kind of like it. At least it's not blue. EDIT: After looking at it more, we might like it more than their current away jersey. The gold looks like gold and the striping is much, much better. […]

Why Shawn Thornton will be suspended 20-plus games

  No one buries a story better than the Boston media. And what is going on regarding the assault by the coward Shawn Thornton on Brooks Orpik is simply one of the biggest jokes we've ever seen. Thornton's hearing is apparently Friday:   Shawn Thornton's in-person hearing with NHL is tentatively set for Friday afternoon […]

James Neal should have never apologized for hitting Brad Marchand

Day three of the national media leading the rage against James Neal, and ignoring the fact that Shawn Thornton committed a crime on Saturday night. Neal has been in the spotlight since the ugly incident with Brad Marchand on Saturday night. – On Monday he was suspended for five games, which wasn't enough for the […]

RECAP: Game 32. Pens beat Jackets 2-1.

    This is crazy to think about:     Even more crazy is how deep the Pens’ blue-line depth is and that they’re still winning games. It’s great to pat Shero and Co. on the back for having the blue line set up like this, but it comes at a cost. That cost involves […]

QUICK CAP: Pens get back to work, win

Doesn't matter what team comes into the building, they're coming in to beat the Pens. The Pens were able to scratch across a couple goals against a stingy Jackets team and were able to hang on. OUR THREE STARS 3. Malkin — Back after missing two games with an injury, he added to his highlight […]

Chris Kelly’s weak ankles, and round-up of Penguins/Bruins fallout

Pascal Dupuis is being accused of breaking Chris Kelly's ankle: So everyone saw that? Sure did look like Kelly slashed Dupuis back just as hard. Might be time for the Bruins to get a new trainer. Moving on to the depths of the Boston sports scene… BarStool sports apparently is a site. And here is […]

RECAP: Game 31. Pens lose to the Bruins 3-2.

  This is one of those games that will linger. Not because of the tough loss, but because of two incidents:   The James Neal / Brad Marchand incident The Neal incident is a rough one, but you have to remember two things:   1. Brad 2. Marchand   As good friend @whistler reminded us, […]

When you Embrace “The Code”….

When you embrace "The Code," you're embracing a way of thinking that says that you solve violence with more violence. You're saying that it makes perfect sense for someone to punch someone else in the face because "that's how you police the game." You're agreeing to the idea that it makes perfect sense to pound […]

QUICK CAP: Assault on the ice overshadows demoralizing loss

The Bruins tied this with under two minutes to play, and then won it with 13 seconds left. But the final score is secondary to people having to watch Brooks Orpik get assaulted by Shawn Thornton and then having to sit through Boston fans cheer it on. Because Thornton is a Bruin there most likely […]
