The Penguins’ Friday practice at Scotiabank Saddledome was a special session for forward Craig Adams.
That isn’t surprising considering Adams was raised in Calgary and even purchased season tickets at the Saddledome to see the ...

The Pittsburgh Penguins’ power play unit has been god-awful for the better part of two straight seasons.In each regular season since the Pens won it all in 2009, the unit has finished outside the top half of the league in man-advantage conversion.A year ago, their 25th-overall ranking turned into a 1-for-33 postseason performance which almost certainly kept the Penguins from finishing...
Penguins forward Craig Adams smiled when asked about a visit to his hometown. Not just because he enjoys the relatively rare times when he gets to play here, but also at the irony. Adams' parents are on vacation, a trip planned before the 2011-12 NHL schedule was released.
So apparantly Matt Cooke decided to put his head-hunting career on hold and try his hand at goal scoring. And even though 1 of the Goals was on the Power Play, I can’t see him staying on the 2nd PP unit all year. He’s a typical 3rd/4th line guy who is valuable on the Penalty Kill, not the man advantage. If for some reason you picked him up for today’s light schedule...
The spittle and invectives fly as Doc and Kenny recount Sidney Crosby's travails and the WNBA's plan to horrifically maim their players for ratings.
VANCOUVER -- It's in the nature of most high-level athletes to play through pain and rush back from injury when possible. Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik has been there, done that, but now he's taking a different approach as he comes back from his second offseason surgery to repair an abdominal hernia.
More than nine months after a devastating hit left him concussed, Sidney Crosby is still not sure whether he was targeted intentionally. In an interview with Hockey Night in Canada, he said he hasn't spoken to David Steckel much about the incident.

VANCOUVER, B.C. – Penguins forward Matt Cooke said he is adjusting certain aspects of his game. What he failed to mention is that he’s turning himself into a sniper – at least for one night.

Eastern conference teams beginning extended road trips far away from home usually have already faced the brutal and constant rigors of an NHL season.
For the Pittsburgh Penguins, however, they are getting the tough travels out of the way early. Coming off of a 4-3 overtime win against the defending western conference champions, the Vancouver Canucks...
Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin scored in the shootout and the Pittsburgh Penguinis overcame blowing a two-goal lead to open the season with a 4-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night. Letang, who also had two assists, beat Roberto Luongo with a nasty backhand deke and, after Marc-Andre Fleury stopped Mikael Samuelsson and Alex Burrows, Malkin sealed it with a strong move...

Puck drop is at 8pm and the game will be broadcast on CBC Hockey Night in Canada and FAN 960 radio. Last time the Penguins came to town TV viewers met the future Mrs. Sidney Crosby, Kristine De [...]
Well a win is a win I guess. It seems like these guys still let their guard down late though doesn’t it? Why can’t the Penguins play a full 60 minutes? Two road wins in a row, both on the west coast though, can’t complain too much about that! No goals for the great Matt [...]
