Pens win for second time in three matchups with Philly on Thursday
As well as it seems Sidney Crosby has played, scoring 11 goals and 39 points in 24 games, he totaled 37 points (8G, 29A) in 22 contests last year while getting over his concussion and neck woes. There might actually be another level for him to get to in the second half.
Paul Martin returned to the lineup Thursday after a...

As always, Mike Colligan delivers an elite performance on a big topic. From the Hockey Writers:
The Penguins will — and do — have interest in Jarome Iginla.
What playoff team wouldn’t want Jarome Iginla?
Come to think of it, what organization can’t call themselves a possible playoff team at this point?
Approximately halfway through the season, the last...
ST. PAUL, Minn. Minnesota Wild forward Cal Clutterbuck has been activated from injured reserve and could play Saturday for the first time since suffering a thigh contusion on a scary hit by Edmontons Taylor Hall on Feb. 21.
He avoided a more serious injury when Hall kneed an unsuspecting Clutterbuck during a Minnesota Wild win at Edmonton. Hall was suspended for two games and then...
ST. PAUL, Minn. Every trip the Minnesota Wild make to play a Northwest Division road game, they change time zones. Traveling to the Mountain Time zone for games at Colorado, Edmonton and Calgary or going with the two-hour switch in the Pacific Time zone in Vancouver, Minnesota's players are well accustomed to changing their wrist watches.
Their watches could get a break if...
Ryan Suter remembers his days in Nashville fondly, from being drafted with the seventh overall pick in 2003 at Bridgestone Arena to playing seven seasons and making five playoff appearances with the Predators.
He's fully aware, though, fans won't be relishing the good times he spent in Music City as he takes the ice wearing a Minnesota Wild sweater Saturday night.
SATURDAY'S STORY LINES: The last time Wild defenseman Ryan Suter stepped into the visiting team hotel in Nashville was 2003. The NHL draft was in Nashville that year and a young Suter was there to conduct his team interviews. Suter went on to be drafted seventh overall by the Predators and spent the first seven years of his career with the organization.
Friday, Suter walked back...
Chris Kunitz scored his second goal just 18 seconds into the third period to cap a four-goal rally and lift the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.
Pascal Dupuis, James Neal and Tyler Kennedy also scored goals for the Atlantic Division-leading Penguins, who won their third straight game.
Jakub Voracek had two power-play goals, Zac...
Ryan Suter on playing with the Wild: "Great organization, and I'm happy to be a part of it. We have a great future ahead of us."
If you’re going to wear a “Sidney Crosby is a whiny little ******** shirt to a Flyers-Penguins game and sit behind the bench, try to pick the game when Sids doesn’t drop three assists on your ass. It’s not a good look. Pens fans beat me up for even posting it on Twitter.
It also doesn’t help when the Flyers had a 4-1 lead. Still, it’s good to see Philly fans being assholes...

The Minnesota Wild and with them, Ryan Suter, are coming for the first time this season to Bridgestone Arena for a tilt against the jilted Nashville Predators. This is the game many have been waiting for and a game many have circled in permanent red ink on the calendar. Nashville finally got the spark that Poile was hoping to ignite from the acquisition of...
There are wins. Then there are big wins. This game: ******* huge win. Maybe Dan Bylsma flipped out after the first period; maybe he didn't say anything. Whatever he did, it was the right move. The Pens now leave Philly knowing they can beat this Flyers team, and the importance of that can't be put into words.
It took the Penguins about 14 games over two...
