Penguins Sidney Crosby, James Neal and Paul Martin skated and shot pucks around before the Pittsburgh Penguins practice today. Crosby wore a full face shield. This is a great sign that Crosby may be ready to come back soon. It is also good sign that James Neal may not have a severe concussion. Paul Martin had surgery to repair a broken bone in his hand yesterday. It would...
When Penguins GM Ray Shero acquired veteran Jussi Jokinen from Carolina at the trade deadline for a conditional draft pick it almost seemed like an afterthought. After all, Shero had spent the previous week snatching up three of the hottest commodities on the market—Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow, and Douglas Murray.
But make no mistake—Jokinen’s the real deal. A quick, versatile...

According to the Pittsburgh Penguins' official website, Sidney Crosby, James Neal and Paul Martin all skated before practice.
Nothing new on Evgeni Malkin yet, but he is wearing a t-shirt and shorts. We repeat, a t-shirt and shorts. We'll stay with this story all day if we have to!
Numerous reports flowing in via Twitter that Malkin will miss tonight's game in Florida due to a serious sunburn.
#Pens center Evgeni Malkin will not play tonight vs. Florida due to an upper-body injury
— Pittsburgh Penguins (@penguins) April 13, 2013
By Matthew Albright Captain Sidney Crosby has been sidelined off the ice since taking a puck to the face in a game against the Islanders on Saturday, March 30, 2013. Crosby had oral surgery and was on a strict all-shake diet. However, his “surprise visit” to Florida during the road trip gave hope that he may [...]

Pens swept their three-game Southeast trip. Can't remember the last time that happened.
Florida sucks, and this game was pretty boring. Unlimited Pens fans in attendance.
This tweet sums up our feelings as the Pens move into the biggest week of the season:
-- Brenden Morrow was a monster in...
Speculation is a killer. Before the game some members of the media speculated Evgeni Malkin had a sunburn:
In Molinari's defense he may have been joking, and he wasn't the only one.
But it turned into this:
'sunburn' is now trending in #Pittsburgh trendsmap.com/us/pittsburgh

Before the start of the game, Evgeni Malkin was scratched with an upper body injury. The injury may have been sustained two nights before when Malkin took a huge hit into the boards. With the Penguins forced to play Florida without three of their top skill players, they turned to gritty forwards and punishing defense to grind out a 3-1 win, Saturday night.Pittsburgh outhit Florida...
from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun,
Here is a look, in no particular order, at 10 of the more prominent UFAs who are poised to hit the market.
1. F Jarome Iginla, 35, Penguins
Iginla’s streak of 11-consecutive 30-goal seasons is about to come to an end, but he could still provide some pop and leadership even in this, the downside of his career. Interesting to see...
By Matthew Albright 4/13/2013 Following a huge 6-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Pittsburgh Penguins are set to face the Florida Panthers on Saturday at 7:30 P.M. This match-up will close out the Penguins’ three-game road trip. In the match-up against the Lightning, the Penguins received offensive power from familiar faces, sleeping giants, and [...]
The Pittsburgh Penguins are good. The Florida Panthers are bad. I could end this preview now and it would probably be sufficient to describe what is going to happen tonight. The brilliant folks who write the schedule for the NHL should probably stop giving Florida home games by about mid-season at this point. There will…
Pittsburgh Penguins (31-10-0) @ Florida Panthers (13-21-6)

It's the 1st-place team in the Eastern Conference against the 15th-place team. Will the Pens stay focused against a weaker opponent?
