Lovefest for Ben Lovejoy, compliments of Twitter
Fun with Twitter.
Thought Iâd paste and copy my Twitter feed at noon Tuesday. I'll leave it up to you to decide whether things sometimes have a tendency to get out of hand. What follows is a snap shot of my Twitter Feed at 12:02 pm EDT on Tuesday afternoon. Penguins defenseman, Ben Lovejoy, takes a fall during practice and the following tw...

Previously on Outside the Boxscore, we featured some NHL players dressing up in their Halloween costumes.
Recently, Pittsburgh Evgeni Malkin decided to Tweet a picture of him and Sidney Crosby all dressed up, Malkin is on the right and Sid the Kid is on the left:

Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that he will not play this week.
The Penguins have games Thursday at San Jose and Sunday at Los Angeles, followed by five days off. Crosby has not played since Jan. 5 due to a concussion and is slowly working his way back to game condition.
"Same old story," Crosby told the newspaper Monday...
Matt Cooke's self-professed reform as a reckless, injurious player was met with healthy skepticism over the summer; despite the way the Pittsburgh Penguins winger bared his personal pain over his wife's illness in early 2011, and offered proclamations like this:
"I've got this chance, and I need to look at it as an opportunity to show everybody that I can change...

Ten players have suited up for all 13 games thus far, including:
James Neal, Matt Cooke, Pascal Dupuis, Chris Kunitz, Matt Niskanen, Joe Vitale, Deryk Engelland, Steve Sullivan, Paul Martin and Craig Adams.
Only Kris Letang and Max Talbot played in all...
Penguins center Jordan Staal and defenseman Kris Letang missed practice for a second consecutive day at Southpointe heading into a trip out west.
Hockey fans have been on Sidney Crosby watch for months now; rumor has it the date 11/11/11 has the potential to be extra magical for supporters in Pittsburgh and hockey fans in general. That's when Sidney Crosby could play his first game for the Pittsburgh Penguins since Jan. 5. How do you see Crosby faring in his return? I think hockey pool managers should have this date circled...
Through 13 games going into the contest Thursday at San Jose, Steve Sullivan has been healthy. He has used his speed and savvy to fit in, playing on a top line with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal when Malkin has been healthy. He has three assists, three hits, one blocked shot. But nary a goal.
Asked about the amount of contact he has had in practice the past few weeks, Sidney Crosby smiled. "Uh, three hits?" he said, then laughed. At least the Penguins captain is keeping his spirits up as he continues to work his way back from a concussion that has kept him out of games since Jan. 5.
The Penguins brutal schedule continues through November, and we look back at October’s 3 stars.

We would take John Tortorella as a head coach every day of the week. Forget last year's 24/7. Tortorella's presence in this year's 24/7 is going to win an Emmy. Here's the Thornton-Tortorella saga in 65 seconds:
-Jordan Staal and Kris Letang are headed to California with the team. [ Trib ]
-Dejan gives everyone a look at Sidney Crosby...
