Sidney Crosby Returns for Penguins

Pittsburgh Penguins Captain Sidney Crosby will return to action tonight as his team faces off against the New York Islanders in game two of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. This is Crosby’s first game back, and first of the post-season, since taking a puck to the face in late March against the New York Islanders. Sidney [...]

The Stanley Cup Playoffs: My Hiatus from Life

From late April to late June I take a sabbatical from life, my own personal hiatus. It’s called the Stanley Cup playoffs. When I’m watching two to three hockey games a night, some things need to take a back burner. Work: With three West Coast series in the first round it’s guaranteed that I won’t be getting to bed before midnight most nights. Add in a T-Bell run after watching...

Crosby on a Regular Line. Neal Missing Practice

Via the Pens: The Pens are on the ice practicing. Only James Neal was absent. Paul Martin missed the early portion of practice (so he did not skate in rushes). Sidney Crosby skated with his former linesmates Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis. Here were the rushes... Kunitz-Crosby-Dupuis Bennett-Malkin-Iginla Morrow-Sutter-Cooke Glass-Jokinen-Adams Jeffrey-Vitale-Kennedy...

Sidney Crosby Returning for Game 2 Against Islanders

PITTSBURGH — It’s game on for Sidney Crosby. The Penguins’ star says he will play Friday night in Game 2 of the playoff series with the New York Islanders after missing more than a month with a broken jaw. Crosby skated with usual linemates Pascal Dupuis and Chris Kuntiz on Friday morning and expects to be in the lineup as Pittsburgh tries to go up 2-0 in the best-of-seven...

Sidney Crosby Marks Return With Two Rapid Goals, But Penguins Can’t Hold Off Islanders in Game 2 (Videos)

Those who were wondering how effective Sidney Crosby would be in his first game back didn’t have to wait long to find out. The Penguins star, who skated with a softball-style facemask Friday night after missing 13 games with a broken jaw, wasted no time getting his name back on the scoresheet. Crosby scored twice in the first eight minutes of Game 2 as Pittsburgh built an early...

Did Mike Milbury and Jeremy Roenick call out Sidney Crosby for taking a dive?

I might have to admit, that I agree with Mike Milbury and Jeremy Roenick on this one here. I thought it was a bad call. I also thought that Sidney Crosby went down really easy. The word embellishment was on the tip of my tongue as well, after I saw the play live. If I am not mistaken, they're kind of accusing Sidney Crosby of taking a bit of a dive there... Is that what others...

Islanders spoil Crosby's return, even series

On Friday night, the New York Islanders won their first playoff game since 2007. Kyle Okposo’s first career playoff goal with 7:37 remaining lifted the New York Islanders to a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins.Matt Moulson, Colin McDonald and Matt Martin also scored for the Islanders, who spoiled Sidney Crosby’s comeback from a broken jaw by rallying from an early two...

NHL Playoff Observations -- Friday

Just a few things that caught my eye: Pass the WD-40 - Sidney Crosby says he felt rusty. He only scored two goals on eight shots and won 53.8 percent of his face-offs. I can't wait to see what the penetrating oil knocks loose next game.  Patrick Kane's stickhandling ability is absolutely sick. He made that fourth goal happen and in a phone booth, to boot...

Series Even: Isles down Penguins 4-3

The New York Islanders knew their effort would have to be better to avoid a repeat performance in Game 1 when they were whitewashed in a 5-0 Penguins victory. Playing against Sidney Crosby looked like it was going to be an uphill battle ten minutes into the first period. But the Islanders settled down and chipped away at a 3-1 Pittsburgh lead to come back and win Game 2.The Penguins...

Islanders tie series with Game 2 win

Kyle Okposo's first career playoff goal with 7:37 remaining lifted the New York Islanders to a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday night, evening their playoffs series at one game each. Matt Moulson, Colin McDonald and Matt Martin also scored for the Islanders, who spoiled Sidney Crosby's comeback from a broken jaw by rallying from an early two-goal deficit...

Dee Karl: Kyle Okposo's KO Ignites The Isles

It wasn’t the way they wanted game two to start. Not after game one. But the puck dropped and only 43 seconds later, it was behind Nabokov in his net. Malkin had scored the first goal with an Iginla assist. Less than three minutes later, Sidney Crosby, making his triumphant return to the Pittsburgh ice scored a power play goal while Andy MacDonald watched from the box. ...

This is a big series for the Pirates, too

Most of Pittsburgh will have its eyes on the Consol Energy Center tonight. That's fair, of course; the Penguins are an awesome team, and nights that Sidney Crosby takes the ice should be celebrated. That being said, I do want to point out that there's a really exciting series happening at PNC Park this weekend. Weird and frustrating trip to Miller Park aside, the Pirates...
