Everyone in Pittsburgh Penguins Nation is riding high after a dominating performance against the Ottawa Senators. This collection of All-Stars has not disappointed by putting on a display of hockey greatness. The thing that everyone needs to realize is that as good as things are, the Penguins are capable of much, much more.
Let’s start with Evgeni Malkin. While Malkin does lead the team in playoff points, he has left a lot on the table. He has dazzled us, made terrible blunders, and at times disappeared, but if he could summon the Malkin of 2009, or even 2012 and dazzle on a more consistent basis while minimizing the blunders, Malkin would be the star among stars.
Sidney Crosby has been cleared to remove the guard protecting his broken jaw. I would liken the protector to that of Superman’s Clark Kent glasses. The specs come off and the super hero emerges. Crosby has been nothing short of spectacular, but has admitted that the guard hampered his vision and its removal can only improv...

In honor of the 12 years between Pittsburgh Penguins playoff games, we are happy to bring to you the product of a hockey starved mind. The name Chuck Norris is synonymous with the word tough. The question must be asked though, is he as tough as Pittsburgh Penguins Defenseman Brooks Orpik? No way! Here are [...]
Do you hate good looking defensemen that rack up a lot of points? Well this post is mostly about you, congrats. When it comes to the Pittsburgh Penguins, it seems that some of their players are just easy targets to criticize than others. You never really hear too much criticism aimed at Sidney Crosby and for good reasons. Crosby is a terrific person and a great hockey player who...
Cleared to play without a plastic apparatus protecting his lower face for the first time since returning from a broken jaw, Sidney Crosby said he'll need a few days to adjust.
It appears he'll get just that.
Crosby wore a traditional helmet with no mouth or jaw protection during the Pittsburgh Penguins' practice Sunday. Like his teammates, Crosby figures to have at...
The Eastern Conference finals have played out exactly as NHL fans everywhere had hoped. Pittsburgh vs. Boston. The number-1 seeded Penguins against the number-3 seeded Bruins. The B’s get their shot at taking out arguably the NHL’s best team, with an all-loaded roster led by Sidney Crosby and Evegeni Malkin. There is no shortage of storylines for this Eastern Conference final...
The Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins will face off in the 2013 Eastern Conference finals. Despite the fact that the Bruins and Penguins had each respectively clinched their second round series, the NHL did not make an official announcement on the upcoming schedule until late Tuesday evening. This Eastern Conference finals series is set to [...]
The NBA has the Lakers, MLB has the Yankees, the NCAA has the Fighting Irish, and the NHL has the Pittsburgh Penguins.The Penguins aren't placed on this list because of how hated they are throughout North America, alone. Rather, they are placed on this list because of their polarizing nature.All Pittsburgh fans believe the Penguins are the most hated team in the NHL and they...
It's the Bruins and Penguins world and everyone else sucks. Am I doing this right?
Here are the current offensive leaders:
Not bad. Big surprise is Horton. He seems to be invisible this post-season but he's quietly wracking up the points and is the league's best plus/minus. He also is in second place for GWG these playoffs. They're not as memorable as...
Hockey has a language all its own. During the Stanley Cup playoffs we’ll see Neal be a sniper, Dupuis hit a slapper and Sidney Crosby will, at least once, go top shelf where Momma keeps the dirty magazines!Did she say dirty magazines? Does she mean porn? Yes. If you watch enough hockey you’ll realize it’s riddled with pornographic innuendo. Some miss it while others are keenly...
