RECAP 73: A Blue, Blue, Blue, Blue Christmas. Pens fall in OT.

Take this one with a grain of salt, because having Evgeni Malkin in the lineup completely changes the dynamic of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Still. The Pens have now lost 10 of their last 16 at home. They’re 1-4-1 in their last six games. The problem lately had been slow starts, and it didn’t change here. And despite only registering three shots in the first, they were able to...

A Tale of Two Penguins Teams by @pghgirl15222

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”  This perfectly describes the team that is the Pittsburgh Penguins. Sometimes when watching them they seem to be an un-stoppable force and other times they are the JV hockey team throwing around ill-fated passes and  a dump and chase that is more dump than chase.  For fans this might be the most frustrating thing...

Are the Penguins Primed for a Collapse?

It was a pretty goal. Especially by recent black-and-gold standards. Beau Bennett cruised into the slot, gathered up a loose puck, and slipped it through the goalie’s five-hole. Problem is, it was Marc-Andre Fleury’s five-hole. Bennett’s wrong-way play seems to epitomize the plight of the Penguins, who’ve lost four straight. A team built to score goals suddenly can’t buy...

Bill Guerin thinks the Penguins whine too much

The Pittsburgh Penguins have a reputation as being a team that loves to complain. Sidney Crosby and his teammates have been given nicknames surrounding this very idea, mocking the fact the Penguins are often seen complaining to the officials after penalty calls and offside whistles. Is there any validity to these statements or are fans of opposing teams just trying to rag on the...

Why Officiating is a NHL Problem and Not a Penguins’ Problem

It turns out the Penguins are not being targeted By: Jim Meinecke I had just enough time to throw together a quick post on a very hot topic…officiating in the NHL. After the last two contests against Detroit and New Jersey, fans are pretty upset with the officiating. Many fans believe there is a bias and that the league may be “out to get” the Penguins. I decided to do a little...

WATCH: Steve Downie pushes an official, earns a misconduct

Steve Downie broke one of the most obvious rules in the NHL – never push/hit an official. Downie apparently forgot this rule as he knocked an official to the ice while trying to stir things up with the Red Wings. He received a 10-minute misconduct and avoided being tossed from the game as the officials believed Downie’s blunder wasn’t intentional. He later went on to pick...

WATCH: Sidney Crosby gets leveled in open-ice hit

In Sunday’s matchup against the Columbus Blue Jackets, however, Sid the Kid found himself on the wrong end of a crushing blow, courtesy of Jackets forward Ryan Johansen. That sound you heard was the entire city of Pittsburgh gasping as...

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...
