"Mad Monday" With @MadChad412 (Sidney Crosby on pace to join elite company)

Welcome to another edition of "Mad Monday"! All the once again I"m not very mad about the Pittsburgh Penguins right now considering that they are 4-1 to start the season.

More changes for Penguins' Malkin

Evgeni Malkin can't keep track of all his wingers the past two seasons. The number is closing in on double digits if as coach Dan Bylsma said is likely Chuck Kobasew replaces Beau Bennett to Malkin's right when the Penguins play the Oilers at Consol Energy Center on Tuesday night. Bennett is day-to-day with a lower body injury that limited him to two shifts in the third...

Penguins Update: Facing Flyers May Not Be Fun

When the Penguins and Flyers resume the Commonwealth Cold War in Philadelphia on Thursday night, it’ll be the definitive case of two foes headed in opposite directions. While the Pens have zoomed to the top of the Metropolitan Division, the Flyers are off to a ghastly 1-6 start. Indeed, while the Pens are firing on all cylinders, Philadelphia seems to be imploding. In a move that...

Ryan Wilson: Live Blog: Penguins In Control But Only Lead Oilers 1-0 After 1st Period

1st Period The Penguins controlled much of the pace and action in that 1st period as they out shot the Oilers by a total of 15-3. There were definitely signs of why the Oilers are struggling as of late. The passing lanes were plentiful in the Oilers end and LaBarbera did nothing to breed any confidence in the goaltender position. Neither Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin have...
