One would think that having premium seats on the glass for Wednesday’s New York Rangers-Pittsburgh Penguins tilt at Madison Square Garden would inspire even the most underwhelmed and difficult-to-impress attendee to at least, you know, turn and face the action occurring directly in front of them. But not this young Rangers “fan.” Look at how […]The post Not impressed: Kid at New York Rangers game the McKayla Maroney of hockey fans (pic) appeared first on Sportress of Blogitude.

Throughout the 2013-2014 NHL season, I’ll be posting player features each Friday. This week, we’re going to take a look at Brandon Sutter.
It can’t come as a surprise that, after the week he’s had, Brandon Sutter is this week’s feature. Each (healthy) Penguin is utilizing their time to...
It's unlikely Pittsburgh Penguins rookie defenseman Olli Maatta ever imagined he would be one of the team's most veteran defensemen at any point this season. But injuries to Pittsburgh's top four blueliners have suddenly forced Maatta into that very situation.
And he's making the transition look easy.
The 19-year-old easily topped his career high for minutes in...
John Tortorella announced earlier today defenseman Ryan Stanton is out for weeks due to this play a few days ago (watch it here).

Few players have overcome greater obstacles to play in the NHL than former Penguin Mikolaj Nicholas “Nick” Harbaruk. Born in Nazi-occupied Drohiczyn, Poland on August 16, 1943, Harbaruk escaped his war-torn country as a young boy and settled in Toronto with his family.
Nick quickly adapted to his new home. Like most Canadian youths, he developed a passion for hockey. At age 17...

The Islanders come to town tonight, and those are always fun nights. Even though they stand no chance of making the playoffs, they always show up for a fight against the Rangers. Goaltending is a big issue on the island, and the Isles have the worst goaltending in the league. Ignoring GAA, the best Isles goalie is starting today (Evgeni Nabokov...
Only two games in the NHL on Wednesday night but NBC’s Rivalry Night certainly gave fans an entertaining game right down to the very end. It took a little while for the scoring to get underway, but about midway through the second period Chris Kunitz scores a powerplay goal to give the Penguins a 1-0 […]
Pittsburgh, PA- In Saturday’s first game of the afternoon, the Pittsburgh Penguins hosted the Calgary Flames at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Pens have loved playing at home as of late, as they have won nine straight games at the Consol entering Saturday, as they were also riding a seven-game winning streak. Calgary came into town Saturday hoping to...
The Pittsburgh Penguins have kept winning in spite of Evgeni Malkin's absence and an extremely short-handed defense. The Minnesota Wild will try to do the same while goaltender Josh Harding is out.
The Penguins will seek a season-high sixth consecutive victory and ninth in a row at home Thursday night while the Wild will try to extend their streak to three games.
New York's archrival hockey teams continue to disappoint, failing to live up to expectations a season after each turned in solid performances in the playoffs.
The Rangers, losers of five of six, look to deal the Islanders their 14th defeat in 15 games when they meet Friday night at Madison Square Garden.
The Rangers (16-17-2) replaced coach John Tortorella with Alain Vigneault...
