Sidney Crosby out this weekend, and be careful saying as to why

Let’s see. 1. There is a disease that is going around the NHL called ” the Mumps ” 2. One of the symptoms of the disease is swelling of the face. 3. Sidney Crosby showed up this morning looking like this: After the Penguins said he would play, they have decided to sit Crosby out: […]


Despres Making the Most of his Playing Time

There was a brief instance in the Rangers game on Monday night that gave me a stark realization about the play and progression of Simon Despres. With the Penguins having just mounted a comeback to tie the game late in the third, Despres was put in an awkward position in the neutral zone. The puck […]


RECAP: Game 26. Pens lose 4-3 in Overtime One thing you can count on when the Penguins and Rangers get together is a wild time. The Rangers paid the Penguins back for that wild shootout win in this one. Calvin Klein scored the OT classic goal, and the Rangers got a much-needed extra point. If you’re into silver linings, the Penguins battled […]

NHL: Pittsburgh Penguins at New York Rangers

What the Hell Happened: Pens fall in OT

Rangers get a goal in OT by some loaner. Win 4-3. Three stars 3. Evgeni Malkin – Malkin took over the third period. He sparked a two-goal rally in the third. 2. Rick Nash – Rick Nash used to be fat and suck. Now he is just fat. Totally different player. He scored a goal […]

RECAP: Game 26. Pens squeak out a big win.

Call it a bounce-back game if you want to. After getting shut out by the Canucks, the Pens wanted to find their balls again. The Sens helped with that. After the early Zac Sill stuff, it looked like this was gonna be a scrappy affair, but it ended up being a clean game. And Malkin […]


What the hell happened: Pens top Sens 3-2

That good ol’ day-game home cookin’ for the Pens. They got a huge late goal from Christian Ehrhoff to bury the Sens. Still felt like the Sens were gonna tie it with Anderson pulled.


Pens trade Philip Samuelsson to Arizona for Rob Klinkhammer

Given the Penguins injury situation and an otherwise underwhelming list of forwards in Wilkes-Barre, it was only a matter of time before the Pens moved some of the surplus they have on defense.  That move came today when Philip Samuelsson was traded to Arizona for left winger Rob Klinkhammer.


Here is the worst article written on the Internet today

If you needed some cheering up on a gloomy Friday, this should do. An article claiming Tyler Kennedy is good at hockey. [ THW ] For some excruciatingly annoying reason, neither Sharks head coach Todd McLellan nor former Pittsburgh Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma seem to understand the true value Kennedy brings to the table. […]


RECAP: Game 25. Canucks win 3-0.

The Penguins have been burdened with depth issues for several years because Dan Bylsma convinced Ray Shero he could win with third- and fourth-liners. So, instead of drafting the best players available at the time, Ray Shero drafted players he and Bylsma had branded “Penguin players.” Well guess what. Nowadays Ray Shero and Dan Bylsma […]


Penguins player 41 suspended for illegal hit.

Pittsburgh Penguins player number 41 – who will no longer be mentioned by name in this space – was suspended by the NHL. Patrick Burke, of the NHL’s player safety department, nails it when he says this: ” …Jagr has no reason to expect to get this late and he is defenseless at the moment […]

RECAP: GAME 24. Devil in the details.

Besides one rush up the ice in the third period, this was the most exciting thing to happen: And that tells you all you need to know about this game. We recapped it anyway…


Weekend Recap: Goc got hurt, Brad Boyes rumor

Over the holiday the Penguins split a home and home with the Hurricanes. NHL standings say this: But if the Dan Bylsma era taught us anything, looks can be deceiving. Don’t get us wrong, being tops in the NHL is cool, but this Penguins team has a lot of work to do.

NHL: Pittsburgh Penguins at Carolina Hurricanes

What the Hell Happened: Pens sneak by Canes

Kind of weird that the Penguins played without their top-paid offensive defenseman, Kris Letang, and offense from the defense won them the game. Robert Bortuzzo scored this mind bending goal:   Maybe one of the worst defensive efforts in recent history, Carolina. Christian Ehrhoff scores his first as a Penguin Christian Ehrhoff is slowly becoming […]
