PENGUINS RUMORS & GOSSIP

WATCH: Penguins perform 'O Canada' following tragedy

The Pittsburgh Penguins decided to add “O Canada” before their game against the Philadelphia Flyers following the horrible tragedy on Parliament Hill. While that gesture would have been nice enough, the Penguins took things a step further and transformed their arena into one giant “We Love Canada” display. Great move by the Penguins organization.

Rutherford Says Pens Will Keep Fleury Around, But Should They? by @MadChad412

The Pittsburgh Penguins have had at least a three-day break in between games for the second time of the season, and it's only October. Thank God for Pens' general manager Jim Rutherford, who gave us all a newsworthy quote about goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury's future. Rutherford told the media "As long as I'm the GM, he'll be our goalie" and "My...

Penguins' Hornqvist has found chemistry with Crosby

Four years ago the Pittsburgh Penguins traded for a forward with unproven potential and put him in position to become one of the NHL's more dangerous scorers. Pittsburgh might have done it again. The Penguins acquired forward Patric Hornqvist, along with forward Nick Spaling, from the Nashville Predators for forward James Neal during the first day of the 2014 NHL Draft. In...

Coming Full Circle on the Salary Cap by @BrianK_PI

When the lockout ended and the salary cap was implemented prior to the 2005-06 season, the Pittsburgh Penguins were in a very different place than they are right now. They were awful on the ice, having gone 22-46-14; "good" for 58 points and a second to last place finish in the NHL. Their team payroll of $23.1 million was well below the $39 million salary cap and not much...

Or if you’re Sidney Crosby, you use your costume to possibly troll your arch enemy.

Snapshot: Pens stand up to Isles, win 3-1.

That awkward moment when people realize the Penguins are doing just fine without James Neal. It is early, but Patric Hornqvist is doing just fine in replacing James Neal. Against the Isles, he fired 12 shots , added the game winning goal, and game sealing empty net goal. He didn’t ruin any powerplays by taking a dumb penalty. He didn’t come unglued when someone hit him. Patric...
