GAME 50 RECAP: Broken Down Fleury

Here’s how the game went in one pic: It felt like the Pens had no chance in Hell of winning this game. People were freaking out that Malkin was out for maybe two games and that Eric Fehr is gonna be out for a month. It’s far from the end of the world. The Florida road trip is always a joke, so you just have to deal with it. However, there is one major concern that is starting...

Just in time, the Penguins are a fun team again

Three games into this season was all it took for people to begin calling for Mike Johnston’s job. Three games, three straight losses. Perhaps somebody should have listened. The Penguins did rebound to win nine of their next ten games. Looking back, however, only two of those wins came against teams currently in a position to make the playoffs — Florida and Washington...

Don’t Forget About Sid the Kid

50 points in 40 games. That was my prediction for Sidney Crosby in the second half of the season. Yesterday, I said that "Sidney Crosby has been outstanding for a month and could easily lead the league in points from this point forward" here. That possibility is off to a great start. Crosby had a hat trick on Tuesday night with an assist and eight shots in the 6-5 win over...

By Larry Snyder The 2016 National Hockey League All-Star Game with its new 3-on-3 format in a division tournament structure was by all accounts Sunday a success in Nashville.

Pittsburgh Penguins: Stars shine at NHL All-Star Weekend

While John Scott was the (very deserving) MVP of the 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend, the Pittsburgh Penguins were still well-represented through the performances of Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang.

Pittsburgh Penguins: Making a comeback

When the Pittsburgh Penguins fell 2-0 in the first period to their cross-state rivals, the Philadelphia Flyers, on Jan. 21, it looked like a familiar story. The Penguins had lost eight straight to the Flyers, with their last win dating back to October 2013, and thanks to the Flyers’ powerplay, it seemed they were on their way to a ninth. But led by the tenacity of Sidney Crosby...

Report: Sale of Penguins could be held up

A lot has been made recently of the working relationship between Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle, co-owners of the Pittsburgh Penguins. I wouldn’t describe it as a black cloud, but for people around the team I am sure they would like to move on from this saga.

Malkin jokes about Ovechkin’s bad defending

The NHL All-Star Game is fun for several reasons, but one of the best is the fact it creates teammates out of rivals. Evgeni Malkin and Alex Ovechkin aren’t heated enemies, but they do skate for opposing franchises with a pretty colorful recent history. With that in mind, Malkin’s slight dig at Ovechkin’s defense is pretty great. Malkin playfully ribbed his buddy Ovechkin...
