Found June 04, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
Barf. Let's be clear:  Dan Bylsma does not tend goal.  Dan Bylsma does not try to score goals.  Dan Bylsma does not provide defense in front of his goalie. But as we all know, that doesn't amount to a hill of beans in the world of professional sports. Because as the Penguins inch closer to their fourth straight playoff collapse after winning the Stanley Cup in 2009, Penguins management may very well now be wondering if this coaching staff is built to lead this incredibly stacked team to a championship level once again. Is a trip to the Eastern Conference Finals sufficient?  I wouldn't think so.  And it's for that reason that Bylsma's seat should start feeling mighty warm this morning.

Penguins Fan/Forbearance Lead Singer Makes Insensitive Boston Tweet

Lead singer of the rock band Forbearance, Jordan Kuruc, is an avid Penguins fan who wasn’t too pleased with Matt Cooke’s ejection from game 1. He took to Twitter to air his dirty laundry for the world to see, posting the following (now deleted) tweet: What an idiot. He immediately apologized via his Twitter page but his band mates still weren’t pleased with him. The group...

This Zdeno Chara/Sidney Crosby photoshop perfectly sums up the Bruins-Penguins series so far

Losing 3-0 at home to open the Eastern Conference Finals was bad enough, but getting thrashed 6-1 in Game 2 is downright ugly. Trailing in the series 2-0 and heading back to Boston doesn’t bode well for the Pittsburgh Penguins, and this brilliant photoshop job of Zdeno Chara hoisting Sidney Crosby over his head—via Reddit—is the literal representation of the series thus far...

Baby cries on Jet Blue flight, Pilot asks if its Sidney Crosby

Sidney Crosby has received a lot of accolades in his career. The player often called the best in the world, hasn't gotten all positive attention though.Much maligned for being a "whiner", Crosby's gotten made fun of plenty by hockey fans over the years. He's currently having a frustrating time with the Boston Bruins. His Pittsbugh Penguins have been outscored...

Kris Letang said the Bruins don't forecheck. Is he right?

Via PHT: Like we saw in the game, they don’t really forecheck us, they just wait for us to make mistakes, and we actually gave them what they got, and we have to be better with the puck, without the puck, defensively, in all areas of the game. Curious statement from Letang, and not really sure what he means. Hopefully a reporter asks him a follow up question next...

GARTH: Net Losses

The Pittsburgh Penguins better get their act together, and quick. Otherwise, they will find themselves cleaning out their lockers and heading prematurely to their summer cottages. Dan Bylsma can blame two things for his team's perpetual failures against the Boston Bruins in the ECF: 1). Atrocious goal tending 2). A turnstile Defense Tomas Vokoun has been as porous...

Pilot asks if crying baby on board flight is Sidney Crosby

Sidney Crosby has been held without a point through the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals, which virtually no one — including the Boston Bruins — saw coming. The Pittsburgh Penguins’ captain has not only failed to score, but he has given away chances and committed costly turnovers. On Tuesday morning, the pilot [...]

Let's All Panic by @Nick422

Why not?  The Penguins are down 2-0, fairly convincingly, to a very tough Boston Bruins team.  Things look really bleak.  Players are playing poorly.  What else is there to do?(Gene J. Puskar/AP)Let's all panic.Never mind that this is the time the Penguins lost back-to-back games at home since January.  Never mind that these are the only two wins the Bruins have against...

Preview: Pittsburgh Penguins at Boston Bruins – Game Three

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that Game Three is a monumental game for both the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Boston Bruins. The Penguins are down 0-2 in the Eastern Conference Finals heading into Game Three and are looking for any signs of life to get back on track tonight in Boston. Though he was yanked from Game Two after giving up three goals in the first period...

Penguins play hangman at practice before Game 3

Yes, seriously…that happened. Pens players showed up to the rink today with a game set up on one of the coach’s whiteboards, and the winning word wound up being “comeback.” The Penguins are seriously grasping for some motivation right now and are settling for hangman to do the job. Because it’s the cup? Personally, I like the below version better. via @MassholeSports

Round Three, Game Two: Penguins-Bruins Recap

Embarrassing. I actually had to talk myself out of my entire recap being just that one word because it sums up the Pittsburgh Penguins perfectly. Game two was a beat down. The Penguins literally never had a chance in this game. It was scoreless for 28 seconds. That’s the closest the Pens ever got in…

Pittsburgh’s Big 3 Haven’t Been Good

from Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Crosby has been lousy. It's hard to say he ever has played this poorly in consecutive games. It's not just that he failed to get a point in either game. He lost his cool at the end of the second period in Game 1, going out of his way to harass Rask and then comically jawing with Boston giant Zdeno Chara, who could have squeezed...

Ty Anderson: Bruins slice and dice Vokoun, Fleury

Shut out for the first time in well over a year in Game 1, and following a complete no-show from superstars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin among countless others, the Pittsburgh Penguins knew that their big guns simply had to show up if the club was to avoid going down for the second straight game at CONSOL Energy Center. But the showing from Crosby 28 seconds into tonight'...

What's wrong with the Pittsburgh Penguins?

As I mentioned on Twitter the other night, forgive me for expecting the Conference Finals series to have better hockey than the quarterfinals. So far neither series has even been a series - it's been one team plowing over the other. The Chicago Blackhawks have been overwhelming the Los Angeles Kings, and the Boston Bruins have been too much for the Penguins to handle.  The...

NHL Rivalries Have Entered The World Of Passive-Aggressive Baking With ‘Penguins Cream Pies’

By way of Larry Brown Sports and a baker with no better outlet in which to express his NHL passions comes the PENGUINS CREAM PIE, a strikethrough joke from Oakmont Bakery in Oakmont, Pennsylvania.Y’see, a “Boston cream pie” is a cake frosted with chocolate, filled with custard or cream. Boston is also the home of the Boston Bruins, who are currently up 1-0 against the Pittsburgh...

Tracking the Playoffs: Penguins vs. Bruins Game 2

The Bruins took a 2-0 series lead over the Penguins by coasting their way to a 6-1 win on Monday night. It was one of those games where the underlying numbers don't matter as much because the game was pretty much over after the first period. Boston scored on their first scoring chance of the game and ended up leading 4-1 after 20 minutes thanks to some horrific defensive play...
