Going All In and Broke by @BrianK_PI

When Ray Shero was surprisingly fired after the Penguins blew a 3-1 lead against the NY Rangers last season, a couple of reasons stood above the rest. A series of questionable contracts, highlighted by Rob Scuderi's four year, $13.5 million deal, stood out . A bottom six devoid of much legitimate NHL talent helped doom the team in the playoffs. The team was old, and the future was...

The following is a list...

KHL Refs Don’t Fall For Dive In KHL Playoffs

Chad Kolarik is an old (29) hockey vet who knows what it means during the playoffs to grab any advantage you can during a big game. That’s Kolarik this week in the KHL Playoffs going into acting mode when big Nikolai Antropov went stick butt tap to the stomach. Antropov is an even older hockey vet (35) who has 788 NHL games on his resume. He’s a goal scorer who isn’t looking...

Losers of the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

NHL Trade Deadline 2015 has come and gone. Some teams added to their Stanley Cup push, making bold deals to bolster their ranks. Some teams cut bait to aid in the tank effort. And some teams stood idly by, doing nothing when anything would have been preferable. So now that the dust has cleared, who made the best moves on deadline day? Which teams didn’t do enough? That’s right...

Via DobberHockey. Penguins line production the last 10 games.     Notes – Hell of a run for Comeau – Malkin – Kunitz at even strength since being reunited. This is what that line has done in the last three games:   – Paging Sidney Crosby? Crosby hasn’t done that much at even strength in the last ten.

Penguins Update: Rutherford Pulls Two Shockers

Just when you thought it was safe to toss your old Ben Lovejoy jersey, GM Jim Rutherford pulled off two buzzer-beaters at the trade deadline. Moving boldly to improve the Penguins’ defense for the postseason, JR swapped rugged Robert Bortuzzo to St. Louis for sturdy Ian Cole.

WATCH: Sidney Crosby gets leveled in open-ice hit

The Aftermath: (3/1/15) @ Pittsburgh Penguins

Five months ago I had circled this date on my calendar, purchased tickets and smiled at the thought of two playoff-bound division rivals going toe-to-toe as they entered the final stretch of the regular season. Well, things don’t always work out as planned and you could consider this one of my biggest fortune-telling blunders. Regardless, this journey into Pittsburgh’s Consol...

What the Hell Happened: Malkin still on fire, Winnik gets an assist in big win

The final score was 5-3, but the only reason this game was close is because both teams were in the same arena at the same time. With the trade deadline looming on Monday, this game may have been our first look at what the Pens may be taking into the dance come April. And it didn’t look too bad. Yeah, it was against the limp Blue Jackets and David Clarkson’s ego, but it looks...

Sidney Crosby catches teammate’s stick (VIDEO)

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is a jack of all trades. He scores goals, sets up scoring opportunities and also manages equipment, apparently. During Wednesday night’s Penguins-Capitals game, Patric Hornqvist had his stick knocked out of his hand. So it sure looked like his team would be at a disadvantage while he played stick-less. Wrong.
