If you have watched a Pittsburgh Penguins hockey game, at some point Penguins center Evgeni Malkin has made you shake your head. One moment you are shaking your head because Malkin has made some sort of otherworldly play to score a goal . The next moment you are shaking your head because he has made [...]

Getting kicked out of Nassau Coliseum for being totally wasted: Priceless
There are some things in life that money can’t buy. For everything else, there’s the next day where you have a massive hangover.
Pittsburgh Penguins forward Chris Kunitz scored a power-play goal 8:44 into overtime to allow the Pittsburgh Penguins to take as 5-4 victory from the New York Islanders in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinals series at Nassau Veterans Coliseum.This NHL playoff series defines why they play the games. Nobody in the world would have guessed that this series will provide...
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...
In his first game back from a broken jaw, Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby buried a goal against the New York 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...
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...
When Dan Bylsma took a seat at the table in front of the Stanley Cup back-drop, the microphones had all been tested. However, something went wrong and when he went to answer his first post game question, a long, loud electronic screech filled the 60,000 square foot exhibit hall and it reverberated to your bones. âThat was like the building tonight.â the deadpan Bylsma...

The Pittsburgh Penguins went down 2-0 in the first playoff game at Nassau Coliseum since 1742.
But then two goals in nineteen seconds (on the power play) tied it up, the Pens took a 3-2 lead, and a 4-2 lead before the Islanders came back to force overtime.
Chris Kunitz's second goal of the day gave the Pens the win and a 2-1 series lead with Game 4 Monday...
Despite the results of Tuesday night's game and the Penguins being the top-seed in the Eastern Conference, I was expecting this series to be somewhat competitive. The first game may have been a dud, but last night delivered a little more of what I was expecting to see from this series. The Islanders have been one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference at controlling puck...

One of the great things about the playoffs is the sense that anything can happen. It's an overstated narrative, but it's somewhat true when you think about it. Crazy things happen in a seven-game sample size (goalies standing on their heads, certain players going through a hot streak, etc.) and the heavily favored team doesn't always win. In this Pens/Isles series, the...
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...
With two goals in the first period against the New York Islanders, Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby blew up the Twitter-verse.
