WATCH: Sidney Crosby gets leveled in open-ice hit

That sound you heard was the entire city of Pittsburgh gasping as...

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...

Hitting Their Stride by @BrianK_PI

It's been an up and down season so far for the Pittsburgh Penguins. At times they look like they could play with, and beat, any team that comes their way. Other times they look dispassionate, disinterested, and like a team that if they managed to squeak into the playoffs, they wouldn't go very far. On several occasions the team has played to both extremes in the same game, seemingly...

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. Crosby managed to catch...

What The Hell Happened: Penguins hang on, win 4-3 and avoid season sweep by Caps

It was only a matter of time before the real Braden Holtby showed up. The Penguins lit Holtby up for four goals on 26 shots, which is huge, being that they had only scored one goal in their previous 91 shots against him. More importantly, the Penguins reminded not only the Capitals, but maybe even themselves that they actually can play against the Metro division big boys. Also,...
