A nine-game winning streak gives Pens fans a very little bit of breathing room to consider the future. Two of Pittsburgh’s core players, Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin, see their contracts end after the 2013-14 season. Malkin carries and annual average value of $8.7 million while Letang checks in at $3.5 million (courtesy of capgeek). Both players will command raises. If the Penguins decide...

$10M In Malkin’s Future

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet, ... this summer will probably see a NHL player sign a deal that averages at least $10 million per season for the first time in roughly a decade. Pittsburgh Penguins centre Evgeni Malkin should be able to command that type of money when negotiations begin on an extension that will start in 2014. Ray Shero, the Penguins general manager, has...

‘Ugly’ Goal Propels Penguins Past Bruins in St. Patrick’s Day Matinee (Video)

The Pittsburgh Penguins are known for their explosive offense, but Sunday’s tilt with the Bruins was a defensive affair. The two teams combined for just three goals, and the game-winner came courtesy of an unlikely source. Northeastern alum Joe Vitale scored for just the sixth time in his NHL career — and the first time since last February — with 32 seconds remaining in the...

Penguins Have Seen This Fish Before

Looks familiar, doesn't it? As another spring is (barely) inching closer by the day, the Penguins are on yet another roll, winners of nine straight.  The Pens' first line of Kunitz/Crosby/Dupuis are playing out of their minds.  Even their defense, which was much maligned not very long ago, is playing much, much better. And all this recently without Evgeni Malkin. ...

Capitals-Penguins Preview

The Pittsburgh Penguins have played splendidly in spite of the absence of superstar Evgeni Malkin, but they might have another key player missing in their next game. Defenseman Kris Letang's status is unknown as Pittsburgh seeks the franchise's fifth win streak of 10 or more games Tuesday night against the visiting Washington Capitals. Malkin, the league's reigning...

Geno's Lines In That Russian Movie Trailer, Translated To English

Last week, some trailer featuring Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin in a Russian movie titled 12 Months debuted. Today, we translate. The basis of this movie falls on some cute woman who gets wishes that were meant for a kid. Or something along those lines. And the kid wants to meet or play hockey with Geno and Ilya Kovalchuk. Even in Russia, Alex Ovechkin is 2nd tier. Well...

Colligan: The Chris Stewart trade Scenario

Colligan drops some knowledge in his latest joint about Chris Stewart: That leaves two possible names that could fit into a potential Stewart deal: Brooks Orpik and Matt Niskanen. On one hand, it’s wild to even suggest a trade of Orpik.  He’s been with the organization his entire career and brings a physical presence that’s unmatched by any other regular defenseman...

About Last Night…Penguins Make It 9 Straight Wins

Sidney Crosby and Joe Vitale scored for the Penguins as they came away with a 2-1 win over Boston, their ninth straight victory. Tomas Vokoun made 31 saves in the win and only allowed Tyler Seguin’s 1oth goal of the season to Boston. SPIN: Pittsburgh took over the top spot in the Eastern Conference even as Evgeni Malkin missed his fifth straight game. Defenseman Kris Letang wasn’t...

Bruins Suffer ‘Steel City Stumble’ Against Penguins Despite Strong Effort Against Tough Foe (Video)

The Bruins faced a tough test against the Penguins on Sunday. Unfortunately, they didn’t quite make the grade. Despite a strong effort and a late push to even things up, Boston couldn’t find a way to break through against a stingy Pittsburgh defense. Tomas Vokoun made 31 saves in a strong performance, Sidney Crosby scored a goal and generally, the Penguins just looked better...

Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 30 - Boston Bruins

Boston Bruins (19-4-3) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (21-8-0) NBC, NHLN-CA, RDS - 12:30 pm/et Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA We imagine that someone scheduled this Penguins/Bruins game for 12:30pm on St. Patrick's Day and then laughed.

Washington Capitals (12-15-1) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (22-8-0) ROOT, NHLN-US, CSN-DC, TSN 2 - 7:30 pm/et Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA Right now, it doesn't feel as big as it once did when the Capitals visit Pittsburgh. But, believe us, if the Caps beat the Penguins tonight and break the Pens' winning streak, they'll be hanging a banner up...

not even making this **** up

The Caps are a hot ******* mess. And Adam Oates apparently doesn't think this schedule is pretty much the same as it was, say, in an Olympic year or whatever the ****. Cry more idk. Letang is hurt. Gene might be back Friday. ugh. MOST PREDICTABLE The Caps take a dumb penalty against the Crosby line within 2 minutes of puck drop. We learn that Brooks Laich is back in...
