SO Winner: Malkin
First Goal Against (Edler)
Alexander Edler receives the puck at center ice and takes a long slapshot on net. The puck hits off of Fleury’s chest and goes into the air where he loses track of it. It ends up falling to the crease behind him and bounces into the net before he can recover.
Players at fault for the first goal against: Fleury (2)

First Goal For (Crosby)
Chris Kunitz knocks the puck away from a Canucks’ forward in the defensive zone and up to Pascal Dupuis, who exits the zone with the puck. Dupuis carries the puck to center ice, where he leaves it for Sidney Crosby. Crosby brings the puck into the offensive zone with Chris Kunitz trailing him and passes the puck back to Dupuis on the left side. Dupuis tak...

On Monday against the Colorado Avalanche, Sidney Crosby put on a conniving little display equivalent of a nasty crossover dribble in basketball. With Crosby stickhandling with his back to him, Avalanche rookie Nathan MacKinnon was trying to stay between Crosby and the net. Crosby faked going toward his right, but went left instead. MacKinnon left to clean his jock up off the...
Okay, so this may not be news but it's amazing and awesome and why we love Evgeni Malkin off of the ice.
Posted within the last hour, Malkin takes a turn posing in his Halloween costume with his very own Dick Grayson (aka Robin). If anyone is willing to translate we'd be more than happy to give credit where it's due.

Sidney Crosby left little doubt about who remains the best player from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia.
That's fine by Nathan MacKinnon and the Colorado Avalanche. At the moment, they'll settle for one of the best records in the NHL.
Jean-Sebastien Giguere turned aside 34 shots and the surprising Avalanche edged the Pittsburgh Penguins 1-0 on Monday night to improve to 8-1 on...
Welcome to another edition of "Mad Monday" with me "Mad" Chad Nolan. As you know by now this is a forum I use to try to put together my rants in a somewhat formal write-up. Once again there's really not much to be mad about in the world of the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Pens are in first place in their division and the eastern conference. So is there anything...
Nathan MacKinnon has been compared to Sidney Crosby for much of his life. The two grew up in the same Canadian town and both went No. 1 in the NHL draft.
Now they get to take a much closer look at each other.
MacKinnon and the Colorado Avalanche visit Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night in the first NHL matchup of the pride of Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia.
1. Crosby is a beast. The NHL season is only three weeks old, and already Sidney Crosby is running away with the scoring lead, again. The Kid has 17 points in 8 games, as I’m sure you already know.

Evgeni Malkin scored in the third round of the shootout, Marc-Andre Fleury made the deciding stop on Ryan Kesler and the Pittsburgh Penguins remained unbeaten at home after a 4-3 victory against the Vancouver Canucks Saturday at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh.
Malkin skated down the right-wing boards and moved across the ice, curling backhand to forehand to stuff the puck past...
It comes as little surprise that the Pittsburgh Penguins sit atop the Eastern Conference with Sidney Crosby holding the early edge in the scoring race.
Few may have expected the Colorado Avalanche to get off to such a hot start under first-year coach Patrick Roy.

First thing's first; if you had the first overall pick and skipped on Sidney Crosby, you're probably kicking yourself. Crosby has looked as good as ever and leads the league in goals and assists. Patrick Marleau is someone who has been impressive to start this year with at least a point in every game and he has scored a goal in every game but one this year. Marc-Andre...

There's a part of us/me that has kind of loved the Colorado Avalanche for a while. When the 1996 Florida Panthers eliminated the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference Final, they didn't just bring the scourge...

Last Game for the Pens: Thursday, a 4-1 win over the Flyers. Both teams spent the first half of the game feeling each other out until Chris Kunitz opened up the scorning for the Penguins in the second period. Chris Kunitz scored less than three minutes later to make it 2-0. Wayne Simmonds scored with two seconds remaining in the period to bring...
A game like this is actually a good thing.
Because the Pens have several months to think about it.
It felt a lot like almost every game in the Boston series. But instead of having like eight minutes to figure it out, the Pens still have a lot of time to look over why they get shut down against really good teams.
It also could've been just one of those games where a...
