BEST OF MAXIM
Evgeni Malkin scored his 50th goal of the season and added an assist to lock up his second NHL scoring title and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-2 on Saturday.
Malkin finished the regular season with 109 points and became the ninth player in Penguins history to reach the 50-goal mark when his wrist shot with 12 seconds left in the second period beat Philadelphia...
For someone that has only played in 22 games this season he has received two of these awards. During his first comeback in December he was named the ‘First Star’ of the Week. This time around he received the ‘Third Star’ after getting 6 points (3 goals, 3 assists) in the final three Penguin’s wins. Crosby finished the season with 37 total point (8 goals, 29 assists...
As most of the BB&G crew was out and about this weekend unable to post about the fantastic sports weekend we had, I thought I would do a quick review.
Even though the Pirates lost the home opener to Philadelphia on Thursday, 1-0 they bounced back in spectacular fashion. They took down the Phillies on Saturday night in the 10th inning after Rod Barajas doubled to center...
The rest of the NHL apart from Penguins fans don’t quite adore Sidney Crosby the way referees seemingly do, and a visual aid of his shenanigans has emerged.
While I’m indifferent to Crosby, many of you who don’t take kindly to his diving habits will enjoy these pictures.
What a season for Evgeni Malkin. Last year at this time he was starting the long road to recovery from a torn ACL. This year, he capped an incredible year with his 50th goal late in the second period against the Flyers:
War has been declared.
It was expected that the Pittsburgh Penguins would retaliate the first chance they got after Rangers head coach John Tortorella lashed out against them following last night's game, calling them an "arrogant" organization and referencing Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin as "whining stars".
But the actual retaliation, which came...
In his post practice press conference today, Sidney Crosby said this about John Tortorella calling him a whiner..."I don't know what he's talking about. I mean, if you want you can put a camera on us all game, put a camera on (Ryan Callahan) all game. You'll see who's over there more. He should worry about his own players."...Is he effin kidding me? Absolutely...
Evgeni Malkin scored his 49th goal of the season and the host Pittsburgh Penguins beat the New York Rangers 5-2 to wrap up the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference.
Chris Kunitz, Tyler Kennedy and Richard Park scored and Marc-Andre Fleury made 35 saves for the Penguins, who beat New York for the fourth straight time. Kris Letang added an empty-netter.
Malkin’s tally for the 4...
Sidney Crosby braced himself as New York Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi lowered his shoulder before checking Crosby into the corner boards early in the penultimate regular-season game on Thursday.
Crosby lay on the ice briefly -- long enough for some Pittsburgh Penguins fans to grow concerned about their captain.
"There is still a section of fans who think he'll get re...
Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith was named the NHL's First Star of the Week on Monday.
Smith extended his shutout streak to 234 minutes, 25 seconds before yielding a goal to St. Louis during the first period on Friday. He stopped 31 of 32 shots that night and made 23 saves on Saturday as Phoenix claimed the Pacific Division title.
Tampa Bay Lightning stud Steven Stamkos...
It was a fascinating final day to the regular season this Saturday, with plenty of storylines directly relating to playoff seeding going in to the Stanley Cup tournament. All 30 teams played, some with having nothing more than pride to guide them, others wishing to play the spoiler in close division crown battles. As we go in to what is sure to be another great postseason, let’s...
NEW YORK (April 9, 2012) – Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith, Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos and Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby have been named the NHL’s ‘Three Stars’ for the week ending April 8.

Six months ago, fantasy hockey players started on a journey that would be filled with many highs and lows. There have been a lot of injuries and some very significant ones at that. We saw Sidney Crosby go down a couple times this year and miss quite a big chunk of time. Then there was the likely career ending concussion to Chris Pronger. It has been a tough year to gauge the top...
