  The Penguins are making the rest of the Eastern Conference look like a joke. They're winning high-scoring games, low-scoring games, and blowouts. They're winning games against the top teams and the bottom-dwellers.   They've now won 9 straight, a streak that started with the Brandon Sutter game up in Montreal. That was also the first game Mark Eaton dressed for. Since then, they are 7-0 with him in the lineup, 2-0 without him. Interestingly enough, both of those games were against the Leafs.   It was a flawless weekend minus one thing. It appears Kris Letang may have tweaked a groin late in the first period against the Bruins. His absence was well-documented in this one, as the Pens were on the ropes a few times in the second and third periods. But the rest of the D was huge, and the Pens added two more points to the bank.   The Pens' schedule is a little lighter this week. Caps, Isles and Flyers are all coming to CONSOL.   Recap...

‘Ugly’ Goal Propels Penguins Past Bruins in St. Patrick’s Day Matinee (Video)

The Pittsburgh Penguins are known for their explosive offense, but Sunday’s tilt with the Bruins was a defensive affair. The two teams combined for just three goals, and the game-winner came courtesy of an unlikely source. Northeastern alum Joe Vitale scored for just the sixth time in his NHL career — and the first time since last February — with 32 seconds remaining in the...

Fleury leads Penguins in shutout

Marc-Andre Fleury couldn't help it. With the Pittsburgh Penguins' franchise record for career shutouts in sight late in the third period against the New York Rangers on Saturday, the talented if occasionally erratic goalie let his mind drift. ''I wanted it so bad,'' Fleury said. ''I tried to not jinx it. I was touching wood, but yeah I was looking...

Penguins Have Seen This Fish Before

Looks familiar, doesn't it? As another spring is (barely) inching closer by the day, the Penguins are on yet another roll, winners of nine straight.  The Pens' first line of Kunitz/Crosby/Dupuis are playing out of their minds.  Even their defense, which was much maligned not very long ago, is playing much, much better. And all this recently without Evgeni Malkin. ...

Colligan: The Chris Stewart trade Scenario

Colligan drops some knowledge in his latest joint about Chris Stewart: That leaves two possible names that could fit into a potential Stewart deal: Brooks Orpik and Matt Niskanen. On one hand, it’s wild to even suggest a trade of Orpik.  He’s been with the organization his entire career and brings a physical presence that’s unmatched by any other regular defenseman...

Capitals-Penguins Preview

Geno's Lines In That Russian Movie Trailer, Translated To English

Last week, some trailer featuring Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin in a Russian movie titled 12 Months debuted. Today, we translate. The basis of this movie falls on some cute woman who gets wishes that were meant for a kid. Or something along those lines. And the kid wants to meet or play hockey with Geno and Ilya Kovalchuk. Even in Russia, Alex Ovechkin is 2nd tier. Well...

Bruins Suffer ‘Steel City Stumble’ Against Penguins Despite Strong Effort Against Tough Foe (Video)

The Bruins faced a tough test against the Penguins on Sunday. Unfortunately, they didn’t quite make the grade. Despite a strong effort and a late push to even things up, Boston couldn’t find a way to break through against a stingy Pittsburgh defense. Tomas Vokoun made 31 saves in a strong performance, Sidney Crosby scored a goal and generally, the Penguins just looked better...
