LOL knew this was coming. [ Puck Daddy ]
To put it in high-school terms: The other absences had doctor’s notes. This one feels like Sid took some vegetable soup, poured it into the toilet and told his parents he had the stomach flu. (I know this works. I tried it, to great effect.)
Yea, sorry. Not one **** given here that Crosby is not at the All-Star game. A sad narrative in hockey...

Instead of my usual column, I decided to do something special for our all-stars! Hope you enjoy!
This may be the best youtube of the year. GoPro announced a partnernship with the NHL, and they released a video of a bunch of NHL players they captured. At the 2:09 mark Crosby is featured. Holy crap:
Throughout the 2014-2015 NHL season, I’ll be posting player features each Friday. This week, we’re going to take a look at Rob Scuderi.

Did anyone expect defenseman Rob Scuderi to have a break-out game like he did Tuesday night against the Philadelphia Flyers? Saying that he had an impressive game...

Sidney Crosby will not play in the NHL All Star Game this weekend. Nor will he play in the Pittsburgh Penguins game following the All Star Break due to a lower body injury. Crosby is the second Penguin to pull out of the All Star Game this week. Evgeni Malkin also will not play in the event.
Missing All Star Games isn’t anything new for Crosby. He’s...
Evgeni Malkin will not take part in the All-Star game festivities as he is nursing an undisclosed injury.Malkin was apparently hurt in the Penguins' game on Tuesday night against the Flyers and was a game-time decision Wednesday against the Blackhawks. It comes as no surprise that the Penguins would want to be cautious with their superstar center. He has 19 goals and 51 points in...
For the Pittsburgh Penguins, the All-Star break could not be coming at a better time.
For the next five days, the Penguins will have time to rest and recoup while trying to figure a few things out. Evgeni Malkin has been hampered by nagging injuries, but should be back when league play resumes. Sidney Crosby hasn’t seemed like his normal, dominant self this year.
But the biggest...

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.
By the third period it was actually a semi-entertaining game with both teams trading chances. David Perron...
"The Thin Blue Line," a film not made by Terrence MalickLast week, I broke down the Penguins' All-Time, All-Star forwards in light of this coming weekend's All-Star game and surrounding festivities.The Penguins have had an interesting mix of players and personalities patrolling their blue line since the Flightless Birds came into the NHL during the 1967 expansion. In that time...
It’s a no-brainer, right? If you want to be a puck-possession team, you need defensemen who can move the puck.
On that count our Penguins gets high marks. Kris Letang, Christian Ehrhoff, Paul Martin, and Simon Despres handle the puck with equal parts ability and aplomb.
There’s a flip side to loading up with so much skill. Friday night’s 6-3 loss to the Islanders was a prime...

The Pittsburgh Penguins are increasing their pursuit of Ryan Kesler, and it looks like they are ready to make an offer.
The proposed deal has Ryan Kesler going to the Penguins in return for Brandon Sutter, two draft picks (a first and a third it looks like) and the Canucks choice of a defenseman between Simon Despres or Brian Dumoulin.
On the heels of the Ryan Miller trade...
PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury was selected to the All-Star game for the second time on Wednesday.
The NHL tabbed Fleury as an injury replacement after Detroit's Jimmy Howard and Nashville's Pekka Rinne were injured.
The 30-year-old Fleury leads the league with six shutouts and is fourth in wins (22), sixth in goals-against average (2.16) and seventh...

Minnesota Wild defenseman Ryan Suter typically isn’t considered a dirty player around the National Hockey League, but he’ll likely be getting a call from the Department of Player Safety after this play on Tuesday night. During the Wild’s contest against the Penguing in Pittsburgh, Suter caught Pens forward Steve Downie up high with an elbow

Few things are quite as entertaining in hockey as when a player is mic’d up during a game. The Penguins placed a mic on Bobby Farnham and it delivered a memorable moment with Colorado’s Cody McLeod. After the two dropped the mitts, McLeod shouted a few words of advice to Farnham.
Bobby Farnham is mic'd in the penalty box. You'll probably want to see this.

Teammates Sidney Crosby, Beau Bennett and Olli Maatta have already...
