Normally a talent like Evgeni Malkin would garner a ton
of publicity for his first NHL season. Malkin was actually drafted by the Penguins in 2004, but his career did
not begin until the 2006-07 season due to a transfer dispute between the
National Hockey League (NHL) and the International Ice Hockey Federation
(IIHF). Maybe it was a bit of
foreshadowing of things to come. By the
time he made his debut in 2006, Sidney Crosby had a year under his belt for the
Penguins. It took a bit of the shine off
of Malkin’s entrance into the league because he was second behind “The Next

Matt Niskanen picks up the puck behind his own net and tries to skate it out by going through Alexander Steen. Steen pokes the puck off of Niskanen’s stick, but Niskanen recovers and gets the puck back. Niskanen then blindly throws a clearing...
First off...I COMPLETELY APOLOGIZE for posting an image of the harshest moment in semi-recent Pirates memory. It hurt me just uploading it to my site as much as it likely pains you to see it again.
Now on to more important findings. Deadspin has compiled a list of random and unique responses that fans have gotten from athletes. Some expectant-father Braves fan received an autographed...
Pittsburgh Penguins forward James Neal returned to action Saturday night after missing all but one game this season with an upper-body injury, as confirmed by Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
The 26-year-old winger was placed on injured reserve on October 15. Neal has only played in one game this season, playing in the team’s season-opener against the New Jersey Devils...
James Neal and Beau Bennett have returned to the Penguins lineup. The allocation of talent amongst the forward ranks gets a huge boost because of their presence. For the past few weeks the Penguins have been icing what amounts to two fourth lines because of the injury situation. This has resulted in an overwhelming burden for Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to carry. Without...
1. Sidney Crosby – Center – Pittsburgh Penguins
At this point in his career he is a shoe-in for a finalist spot even if he doesn’t deserve it, but let’s let’s be honest with ourselves, he always puts up the numbers to justify it. In just 17 games this season he is tied for the league lead in points with 23 and that number is despite him failing to find the back of the net...

Every player is different. With Sidney Crosby is was right away. He scored 100 points his first NHL season, MVP's and nominations came flowing...
Sidney Crosby is a Steven Stamkos fan.
He also is a friend to Stamkos, whose MVP start to the NHL season was halted by gruesome injury on Monday. Stamkos is out indefinitely with a broken right tibia.
“I just felt terrible seeing that, seeing him — it looked like a lot of pain,” Crosby said after the Penguins practiced at Consol Energy Center on Tuesday.
The Olympics are months away still, but already they’re off to an amazing start.
The host country just couldn’t contain their excitement for the 2014 Winter Games, creating a music video full of Russian hockey superstars guaranteed to get fans of the game pumped for February.
Taking a page out of the “Super Bowl Shuffle” playbook, Alex Ovechkin, Evgeni Malkin and Ilya...
Welcome back to another edition of "Mad Monday" where I get to go off on my rants in a somewhat formal manner. So far this season I haven't had much to be upset about when it comes to the actual Pittsburgh Penguins on the ice, considering that they continue to post one of the best records in the entire league.
However, the team has been struggling as of late, losing...
Ryan Reaves had a busy night against the Pittsburgh Penguins. He started the night off by fighting Deryk Engelland off of the opening draw and later tipped in a goal as the Blues secured a huge 2-1 victory.
Here's Reaves dropping the gloves with Engelland:
Nice fight. I've always thought fights off the opening draw are pretty silly, especially when it'...
A couple of unexpected additions to the lineup had the Penguins and their fans in high hopes coming into a showdown with one of the best teams in the west. James Neal and Beau Bennett both made their returns to the lineup after spending some significant time on the shelf with respective injuries. As play…
The Penguins and Blues were tied at 1 heading into the 3rd period of Saturday night's matchup but it was the Blues who found a way to win. The Blues were in control much of the evening despite the close score. Marc Andre Fleury did an admirable job holding the Blues to two goals.
Here are the game highlights:
The Blues were the better team all night long and were...
