Posted September 19, 2013 on AP on Fox
Beau Bennett scored the lone goal in the shootout, and the Pittsburgh Penguins rebounded after giving up a two-goal lead to beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-3 Thursday night. Sidney Crosby, Derrick Pouliot and Joe Vitale scored in regulation for Pittsburgh (1-1-1). Chicago's Brandon Bollig shoveled in a rebound from a scrum in front of the net with 6:53 left in the third to tie it at 3 and send it to overtime. Patrick Sharp and Ben Smith both scored for the second straight game for the Blackhawks (1-1-0). Crosby, whose career has been punctuated by games lost to concussions, was struck by the stick of Chicago's Adam Clendening in the final minute of overtime and dropped to the ice. He got up slowly, then skated to the bench on his own. Crosby was Pittsburgh's second shooter in the shootout and missed on a backhand attempt. The Penguins' Tomas Vokoun and the Blackhawks' Nikolai Khabibulin played the entire game. Vokoun finished with 30 saves through overtime and...

Penguins are Getting Defensive by @pghgirl15222

"Penguins Are Getting Defensive" Newest Pittsburgh Penguins hire, assistant coach Jacques Martin, may not seem all that important or even go noticed among the fan base, but his presence is one that is much welcomed and will be felt this season. Martin, whose previous coaching resume includes three stops as a head coach, brings a wealth of knowledge to an already strong...

More Than Superstars by @brumistheshow

Being a fan of the Pittsburgh penguins is pretty cool. We boast a line-up of stars that very few fan bases have ever seen. We have one of the best young snipers in James "the real deal" Neal. We have the dreamy, sexy-haired defenseman Kris Letang. The globe trotting, selfie taking, quote machine that is Evgeni "Geno" Malkin. Those 3 alone would make most teams...

The Straw That Stirs the Drink by @ExcitedBobErrey

Ray Shero knew that he was getting a steal in the spring of 2011 when he managed to pry James Neal away from the Dallas Stars for just Alex Goligoski.  That much is underscored by Shero somehow bringing back a capable NHL defenseman in Matt Niskanen as well.  And while the logic from Dallas centered around the team desperately needing a puck moving defenseman, the Stars really...

Improving The Bottom-Six is Crucial to the Penguins Success

  Getty Images by Rich Miller (@PensBender) The Pittsburgh Penguins have arguably the best two top lines in hockey.  Having two of the best players in the world centering said lines certainly doesn’t hurt that argument.  It’s a very realistic possibility, assuming that everyone stays healthy, each member of the Penguins top-six could score over 60 points this season, including...

He flashed regular-season form — including a on-one-knee goal — in the Penguins' 4-3 shootout win over the Chicago Blackhawks in an exhibition game United Center on Thursday. Defenseman Derrick Pouliot and fellow center Joe Vitale joined Crosby as Penguins' scorers. Goalie Tomas Vokoun played the entire game and did not...

This Week in Penguins History by @robullman

Getting to know Beau, By @LuigiLemieux

Getting to know Beau February 15th 2013. Seems like yesterday right?   The game was against the Winnipeg Jets, and finally it seemed as though Penguins fans were going to get their first taste of the phenom from California that we had been hearing so much about. Standing at a modest 6'2, and looking every bit of 180 lbs, Beau Bennett looked like...

LINK CITY: ESPN is the worst! ESPN is the best!

It goes without saying that ESPN is not the place to go for hockey. We all know this. Still, some do, and when they do they see something like this. The top 100 forwards list is whatever. But check out some of the pics they used. Kunitz made the list. The Chris Kunitz from four-years ago also made it. Oh and the 13 year-old James Neal made the list too. ...
