It will be a battle of the back-ups tonight. Brent Johnson will be in net for the Penguins. Marty Turco will be in for the Bruins. Could this be Brent Johnson's final start in a Penguins jersey? Could it be Marty Turco's final start ever?

BEST OF MAXIM
There's no arguing that Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are the two best players on the Pittsburgh Penguins. They're two of the best players in the world, let alone Pittsburgh. However, would you also label the dynamic duo the Pens' dirtiest players as well? One rival assistant coach would. Philadelphia Flyers assistant coach Craig Berube stoked the flames of one of the...
Yesterday’s game with the Flyers was just crazy. Not only did they own us after we opened up a 2-0 lead in the first period but things got out of control with about a minute left in the game. I mean it was an all out brawl on the ice, even the coaches got into the action. The craziest part is that we meet again next Saturday in the regular season finale and it looks like...
Andrew Ference isn't a big guy. And he doesn't often get himself into physical battles, especially fights. On Tuesday night, Ference made an exception. After a tough first period, Ference had just about enough of the Pittsburgh Penguins' gritty style and took on a much larger opponent to relieve some aggression. Ference challenged Penguins winger James Neal, giving up...
Mike Milbury formally apologized to the Penguins for his comments yesterday. [Puck Daddy]
"I reached out to David Morehouse and the Penguins about the comments I made yesterday on Philadelphia radio. In hindsight, I realize what I said was inappropriate and wrong, and I want to apologize to the Penguins organization and their fans."
Shero and Crosby...
Sidney Crosby’s return has apparently been worth the wait. Crosby has 25 points in 15 games, a point-per-game ratio of 1.666, his best ratio in his career. But why has Crosby’s return been so successful? Several responds to his dominance have been that the amount of time that the Penguins staff and doctors took with him really helped him be just as good, if not better, than he...
Tuesday night's game wasn't supposed to matter for the Bruins, since they're locked into the No. 2 spot in the Eastern Conference for the playoffs. When Johnny Boychuck went down with an injury, however, things got real in a hurry. The Bruins lost the game and potentially more when Boychuck collided with Arron Asham and left the game with a lower-body injury. Obviously...
Sidney Crosby had two goals and an assist, James Neal scored the go-ahead goal on a power play, and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Boston Bruins 5-3 on Tuesday night.
In Pittsburgh's first game since a late brawl Sunday against the Philadelphia Flyers, Crosby gave the Penguins a 1-0 lead 7:41 in. He made it 4-2 with 1:11 left in the second period with his club's second...
Pens collect two points Tuesday in 5-3 win over Boston
- Kris Letang bought a penalty that made it a 5-on-3 for the Pens on Tuesday and it was very nice to see. Letang, coming off two concussions and giving his body at every opportunity for the better good, deserved to get a call â even if it wasn't legit â after all of the ones the referees miss. Well done.
Playoffs, Pens and Flyers make for great matchup

If youâre a Penguins fan, Sundayâs game was more chatter and jockeying than anything else. How much does it really matter whether the Pens finish fourth or fifth? Itâs a foregone conclusion that the teams will meet in the first round of the playoffs.
If Iâm Dan Bylsma...
In February, I wrote about how the Philadelphia Flyers were the highest scoring team in the league. They will not finish the season in that position. The Pittsburgh Penguins have taken over that spot. It is no surprise that this happened after Sidney Crosby returned from injury. With Crosby in the lineup, the Penguins have the two highest scoring players in the league in...
Looking for a good hockey scrap are you? Then look know further than this next video featuring an insane brawl between members of the Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins.
When it was all said and done, the penalty minutes for this skirmish totaled 50 and many expect fines and possible suspensions from the league.
I'm someone who believes that the...

At one point in this game, it was 2-2. The Boston crowd was chanting "Crosby sucks." Then Niskanen got run by some asshole and Letang took a stick up high. Then Neal scored. Then he got into a fight.
The blood boils. You're jammed up. Everyone you know is jammed up. 20 seconds after Neal and Ference go off, Crosby delivers the...
