No Jokin: Penguins’ Jussi for Real

When Penguins GM Ray Shero acquired veteran Jussi Jokinen from Carolina at the trade deadline for a conditional draft pick it almost seemed like an afterthought. After all, Shero had spent the previous week snatching up three of the hottest commodities on the market—Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow, and Douglas Murray. But make no mistake—Jokinen’s the real deal. A quick, versatile...

Kris Letang destroys two Lightning players with one check

In his first game back since getting re-injured on March 26th, and only his 2nd game since March 17th, Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang had one of the best hits of the year.  Letang drilled Tampa Bay Lightning forward Alex Killorn who went flying right into Martin St. Louis after he had just passed St. Louis the puck.  Letang’s momentum then carried him into the two...

Pittsburgh Penguins rink managers have Notre Dame-esque motto

The rink managers at the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Console Energy Center seem to have a sense of humor.  They copied the iconic Notre Dame motto “Play Like A Champion Today” and made their own.  When you Zamboni the ice, it’s commonly known as “flooding” the ice, hence the motto. [@A_Merrit] []

Malkin missed Panthers game because of re-injured shoulder, not sun burn as reported

Speculation is a killer. Before the game some members of the media speculated Evgeni Malkin had a sunburn: In Molinari's defense he may have been joking, and he wasn't the only one. But it turned into this:   'sunburn' is now trending in #Pittsburgh — Trendsmap Pittsburgh (@TrendsPGH) April 13, 2013  ...

Penguins-Panthers Preview

While they're still missing several key players, the Pittsburgh Penguins have had little trouble generating offense the last two games as they continue their push for the best record in the Eastern Conference. That trend could continue Saturday night as they visit a last-place Florida Panthers team that's allowed the most goals in the conference by far. Seeking their fourth...

Potential Top UFAs

from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun, Here is a look, in no particular order, at 10 of the more prominent UFAs who are poised to hit the market. 1. F Jarome Iginla, 35, Penguins Iginla’s streak of 11-consecutive 30-goal seasons is about to come to an end, but he could still provide some pop and leadership even in this, the downside of his career. Interesting to see...

Game 42: Penguins-Panthers Preview

The Pittsburgh Penguins are good. The Florida Panthers are bad. I could end this preview now and it would probably be sufficient to describe what is going to happen tonight. The brilliant folks who write the schedule for the NHL should probably stop giving Florida home games by about mid-season at this point. There will…

Dallas Stars ditch veterans, transform into contender

A funny thing happened after the Dallas Stars ditched veteran forwards Brenden Morrow, Jaromir Jagr and Derek Roy to clear payroll space and add future assets.They started winning games. A five-game streak has vaulted the Stars into eighth place in the Western Conference and squarely into the playoff sprint. Who knew that trade deadline sellers could also become winners? Stars general...

RECAP: All Easy Mode. PENS WIN.

Rewind back to the end of the Flyers series last season. What would your brain have done if you could've seen the Pens' stat lines in this game? Jussi Jokinen: 2G, 1A. Jarome Iginla: 2A. Brenden Morrow: 1A. Douglas Murray: 1A. wtf. Three things about this game. 1. The Pens are the deepest they've been since the '09 Cup run.  2. Tampa Bay sucks. 3...
