On the surface, Tyler Kennedy is the prototypical Dan Bylsma forward. Good speed.  Decent forechecker.  Decent defensive forward.  Not a European (oops). But after a disappointing '11-'12 season with 11 goals (in 60 games), Kennedy has arguably been the worst performing forward in the Penguins lineup so far this season. After 15 games, his one goal and two points have the Penguins fanbase, and likely Penguins management, getting weary of his mediocre performance in the Pens' lineup.

Video: Penguins’ Tanner Glass and Sabres’ Cody McCormick duke it out in marathon fight

The cause of this fight was McCormick’s questionable hit on Penguins forward Brandon Sutter earlier, and when these two veteran enforcers met up, they fought for a good 40+ seconds. Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma took exception to the hit, which he thought was high. “I don’t think he had the puck,” he told Josh Yole of Tribune-Review. Gotta appreciate the gentlemanly McCormick...

Sens' owner rips Matt Cooke, calls him a 'goon'

Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson will be out for the rest of the season due to surgery on his Achilles tendon, which was sliced by the skate blade of Pittsburgh Penguins' Matt Cooke. Senators owner Eugene Melnyk is pissed about losing the defending Norris Trophy winner, and thinks Cooke is a "goon," who shouldn't be in

(Video): Senators owner Eugene Melnyk goes off on Matt Cooke

Apparently, the owner of the Senators Eugene Melnyk feels the same way I do about Penguins forward Matt Cooke. It looks like the Penguins are putting Cooke on notice. The last game between the Penguins and the Senators is going to be a dandy. It might be a blood bath. "To have him [Karlsson] taken out by a goon [Cooke] it’s just unconscionable," Melnky said. "...

Despite being 11th in the League in scoring, local Pittsburgh columnist calls out Malkin

(Insert Petr Svoboda joke here...dicks) It's officially Penguin season, everyone. Ron Cook has called out Evgeni Malkin! Not going to lie here, we didn't even read much of the article.But we can guess what was said. From what we did see, Cook, because he knows nothing about hockey fails to mention that Malkin is 5th in the league in assists, and 11th overall...

Shero still scouting the league looking for help on the Wing

GM Ray Shero stopped off in Minnesota while the rest of the team headed to Winnipeg on Thursday. He spent some time meeting with former co-workers, Wild GM Chuck Fletcher and Coach Mike Yeo. Word has it that he was doing a little scouting while there as well and that he might have interest in either Devin Setoguchi or Pierre-Marc Bouchard. Neither would cost the Pens more than a...

Ryan Miller makes amazing glove save

During the celebration of Hockey Day In America, it’s only fitting that the Buffalo Sabres American goalie Ryan Miller delivered this absolute gem.  Tied 3-3 late in the 3rd period, Pittsburgh Penguins forward James Neal somehow got wide open in the Sabres zone.  Sidney Crosby hit Neal with a perfect pass, and Ryan Miller miraculously came across the crease and snagged it out...

Rowan meets Sid the Kid

From the St. Catherines Standard's Dan Dakin: Standing there in front of little Rowan Langille was the guy whose name is on his favourite hockey stick. The guy who he watches playing his favourite sport on television. The guy who is easily his favourite player in the NHL. Sidney Crosby crouched down to be at eye level with the four-year-old boy fighting cancer that started...

Don Cherry lets Cooke off the hook, suggests that lack of skate-taping to blame for Karlsson injury

On Saturday Night's Coach's Corner, Don Cherry weighed in on Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson's torn Achilles' tendon at the hand...I mean foot of Pittsburgh penguins forward Matt Cooke, and Cherry actually defended Cooke, suggesting instead that Karlsson was at fault for not taping his skate to his ankle:

RECAP: The American. PENS WIN.

  If Paul Martin hadn't erased two years of disappointing play with his spectactular start to this season, a game-winning goal with under 3 minutes to play would've done the trick, too. Man, that is ******* huge. It's reminiscent of the big moments Sergei Gonchar used to provide.   But Martin wasn't the only hero on Hockey Day in America. Look no further...
