Found October 31, 2013 on PensInitiative:
The Pittsburgh Penguins stared down some of their demons on Wednesday during a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins. There were times during the game I wondered if the refs had eyes or knew what a penalty was as both sides got away with a lot of questionable play, but the Pens were able to capitalize on their opportunities and come away with the victory. The truth is for at least two periods of the game last night, the Pittsburgh Penguins were by far the better team. Just ask Bruins Coach Claude Julien: “Give them credit. They were a determined team. For at least two periods they were the better team…” Go ahead, read the rest »

The first month of the NHL season is in the books, and the Pittsburgh Penguins have already opened up a 7 point lead in the Metropolitan Division.

Boston Bruins: Late rally falls short in Pittsburgh

Trailing 3-1 with just over two minutes left in the third period, the Boston Bruins (7-4-0) tried to pull off another improbable comeback that the team has had a flare for in recent history.

Penguins hold off Bruins, 3-2

This Penguins’ 3-2 victory against Boston at Consol Energy Center Wednesday night does not make up for what the Bruins did to the Penguins in the Eastern Conference final this spring, of course. The stakes weren’t as high as they were in the postseason, and neither was the intensity. But it wasn’t really all that far from it, either. Certainly, it was not just another autumn...

Great Moments In Unlicensed Pittsburgh Sports Merch: Zombie Penguins

I gotta thank usbzoso for the tip on both of these shirts back in April. And we had to sit on them for six months for Halloween because get real. Above, we have a lovngly-rendered zombie version of captain Sidney Crosby, titled as the CROZBIE APUCKALYPSE. I got this in early April, so I'd imagine it was riffing on Sid's then-fresh broken jaw. Only that's now in the...

Sidney Crosby: Returning the Favor by @griffTHW

It's proven to be the case on more than one occasion.  To this point in his career, injuries appear to be the only thing capable of preventing Sidney Crosby from making the NHL his own personal playground.  In 2007-08, for example, a high ankle sprain derailed Sid's bid to repeat as the league's scoring champion and Hart Trophy recipient.  In 2010-11, "...

Scott suspended seven games for hit on the Bruins Loui Erikson

In my opinion, this suspension, isn't long enough. I would like to see this be a 10-game suspension. Just for the record, Loui Eriksson hasn't played since October 23rd, because he's suffering from a concussion. Also, during his NHL Career, John Scott has scored a grand total of (1g-4a—5pts) in 187 NHL games. Not known for his offensive prowess, the Sabres' pylon...
