Found June 05, 2013 on PensInitiative:
With all the bridges in the city of Pittsburgh, how exactly should a Penguins fan go about choosing just the right one to jump off following the uninspired play of the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals?Sure, you could go for the tried and true Smithfield Street Bridge, I mean it’s old… Very old… Not to mention Historical. You would end up right in the Monongahela (Pennsylvania River of the Year mind you), But in a town with bigger, brighter, and much more vibrantly colored choices, would one run the risk of being considered “Ironically Lame” for heaving themselves off the Ol’ Smitty? Maybe.Decisions… Decisions…Now I am not going to berate you for experiencing your own little moment of Hockey Doubt and Pain. I cannot stand people that tell me to stop being negative, as if I am able to pull something positive out of being outscored 9-1 through the first six periods of the series. The only positive I can find in my heart to be truthful is that Monday night was not Game F...

Pilot asks if crying baby is Crosby?

During a Tuesday flight bound for Boston, a JetBlue pilot allegedly took to the intercom and inquired if a crying baby was Penguins star Sidney Crosby.

Crosby: Game 2 was “pretty much a gift”

It seems that the Pittsburgh Penguins, and especially their captain, are very reluctant to credit the Bruins and their players for the struggles the Pens have dealt with in the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals. Captain Sidney Crosby, who has struggled mightily through the first few games, didn’t offer much praise for Patrice Bergeron or Chris Kelly, the counterparts...

Pilot: Is that a crying baby or Crosby?

Even pilots are getting in on the Sidney Crosby bashing. According to Joe Haggerty of, the pilot on a JetBlue flight from Pittsburgh back to Boston on Tuesday morning heard a crying baby and went on the intercom to ask if it was the Penguins captain. The flight just happened to be filled with Boston media. Crosby has been taking some heat from fans and media for complaining...

Sidney Crosby - You're Our Only Hope by @ChrisRBarron

There is a lot of the blame game getting played this morning by Pens fans and hockey talking heads - and there is plenty of blame to go around.  The Pens leave Pittsburgh - headed to Boston - in a 2 games to none hole.  Even worse, the Pens just got demolished in game 2.  Completely and totally dominated in every single facet of the game.  There is very little to look at from...

JetBlue Pilot jokes that crying baby is Sidney Crosby

With the Boston Bruins up 2-0 in their Eastern Conference Finals, it seems that even JetBlue Pilots are taking shots at Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby. A JetBlue flight bound from Pittsburgh to Boston that was carrying media members covering the series got a little comical after the pilot made a joke about a crying baby on board: Baby crying in back of Jet Blue...

Pilot asks if crying baby on board flight is Sidney Crosby

Sidney Crosby has been held without a point through the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals, which virtually no one — including the Boston Bruins — saw coming. The Pittsburgh Penguins’ captain has not only failed to score, but he has given away chances and committed costly turnovers. On Tuesday morning, the pilot [...]

This Zdeno Chara/Sidney Crosby photoshop perfectly sums up the Bruins-Penguins series so far

Losing 3-0 at home to open the Eastern Conference Finals was bad enough, but getting thrashed 6-1 in Game 2 is downright ugly. Trailing in the series 2-0 and heading back to Boston doesn’t bode well for the Pittsburgh Penguins, and this brilliant photoshop job of Zdeno Chara hoisting Sidney Crosby over his head—via Reddit—is the literal representation of the series thus far...

Crosby taking the heat for collapse

It's safe to say the Eastern Conference final hasn't been Sidney Crosby's best series. Heck, even airline pilots were comparing him to a screaming baby -- and that was before Wednesday's night's Game 3 loss to Boston . After all, he has been as awful as ever. First time Sidney Crosby's gone without a point in three consecutive games since November of 2009...

Great Photochop: Zdeno Chara about to body slam Sidney Crosby

Anyone have a caption for this one?

Will Crosby Find His Game?

from Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe, All eyes will certainly be on Sidney Crosby. Now that LeBron James has rescued the Heat in a Game 7, Crosby is the sports star with the most to prove in the spring of 2013. His reputation has taken a massive hit in the first two games of this series and he risks morphing into a Wilt Chamberlain/A-Rod pinata if he continues to pout and...

The Cultural Issues of the Penguins by @highheelshockey

We know how terrible the defense has been. We know how lazy the back-checking has been. We know how utterly pathetic the power play has been. We know that Marc-Andre Fleury has become the pariah of the Penguins organization. We know that Sidney Crosby is still stuck back in the Ottawa series, searching for his way to the Boston series.But issues of the x’s and o’s and effort...

Penguins-Bruins Preview

Sidney Crosby and the potent Penguins have been punchless. Pittsburgh led the NHL in scoring in the regular season. It averaged 4.27 goals per game in the first two rounds of the playoffs. And it poured in 13 goals in the last two games of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Since then? No addition necessary. The Penguins have just one goal in two losses on their home ice to the...

Hockey Night in Canada's pre-game video before BOS-PIT Game 3 was exceptional

The pre-game videos shown on Hockey Night in Canada are widely regarded as being some of the best clips and video packages in all of sports. The package shown before Game 3 between Boston and Pittsburgh might have raised the bar even higher.  Set to "Karma Police" by Radiohead, viewers are taken through several storylines which filled the series' first two games...
