Penguins without Neal, Adams and Asham for game 4 tonight

After the mayhem that was game 3 the Penguins will be without 3 forwards tonight for a critical game 4. James Neal will be suspended for one game after two consecutive hits he placed on Flyers players in the third period on Sunday. Craig Adams will be suspended also for one game for instigating a fight in the third period on Sunday. Aaron Asham will be suspended for 4 games after...

Penguins' Asham and Neal suspended by NHL

The NHL suspended Pittsburgh forward Arron Asham for four games - the remainder of his club's series with the Philadelphia Flyers - and gave a one-game ban to Penguins teammate James Neal on Tuesday night for separate infractions. Asham was punished after being given a match penalty for attempting to injure Philadelphia forward Brayden Schenn with a cross-check on Sunday in...

Calling Crosby a coward misses point

The image is good, as Photoshopped pictures go. There is Sidney Crosby's face, with an "Awkward Family Photos" grin, superimposed onto a lion costume. And this pairs with the headline "The Cowardly Penguin." Well played, Philadelphia Daily News. Somebody had to take a stand against the Pittsburgh Penguins captain trying to play smarter with his bruised and...

Philadelphia Daily News adds fuel to Penguins/Flyers rivalry with cowardly Crosby cover

Usually, the fancy photoshopped newspaper covers that make news are saved for the New York tabloids.  However, given the heated nature of the Flyers-Penguins series and the ugliness in Game 3, perhaps we were bound to see one of the local papers throw a bomb at the opposition.  Yes, that's really Sidney Crosby wearing a lion suit and labeled both as "The Cowardly Penguin...

Sidney Crosby Dubbed 'The Cowardly Penguin' on Cover of Philadelphia Daily News

Put 'em up! Put 'em up! While Sidney Crosby isn't traditionally known for dropping the gloves -- although he did rumble with Claude Giroux in Game 3 -- he might have a little extra incentive to try and demonstrate some manliness in Game 4 of the Penguins-Flyers Eastern Conference quarterfinal series on Wednesday night. That's because Sid the Kid was depicted on the...

Breathe Flyers Fans, We Still Have the 3-1 Series Lead

The score could have been 20-3 tonight, and it would still count for the same amount of wins and impact on this series: 1. While getting handled in front of your home crowd (embarrassed frankly), the one positive thing the Flyers can take out of Wednesday night's 10-3 loss to the Penguins is that they still hold a commanding 3-1 series lead. DISCLAIMER: This is obviously a joke...

the long slow stroll through hades

Nothing we can say on this blog that hasn't been said already elsewhere. NHL is in a cultural breakdown of violence, Pens will be without Adams, Asham, and James Neal for game 4. Hossa taken out of Game 3 of his series on a stretcher tonight. Unbelievable ****. The Penguins will determine tomorrow evening if they have a handle on reality and we'll be there either watching...
