There was a time in the not-too-distant past when Penguins opponents hated visiting the Steel City. Not only would they have to face a lethal lineup featuring hungry young stars such as Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, but they knew they’d absorb more than a few bumps and bruises, too.
Now it seems, opponents are having far too easy time with the black and gold. Basically, all a foe needs to do is weather the Pens predictable frenzied start, deny their smallish forwards the middle of the ice, and wait for one of their high-priced superstars to turn the puck over in frustration.
It wasn’t always so. When Ray Shero assumed the GM duties back in 2006 one of his first priorities was to make the Penguins more difficult to play against. Enter disturber Jarkko Ruutu and, a short time later, legendary toughies Georges Laraque and “Scary” Gary Roberts. Overnight, the Pens were transformed from hockey lambs into lions.
And now? While you can hardly call the Pens timid, there are a growing num...

Haha. It’s funny because Sidney Crosby has suffered through a litany of concussion issues over the years. But this clearly randy Pittsburgh Penguins fan believes that if Sidney Crosby should have to go through the experience of suffering another concussion, what better way to do so than during a sweet, passionate, head injury-causing session of […]The post Female Penguins fan...
Sidney Crosby concussion jokes are nothing new, though they usually don’t tend to come from Pittsburgh fans. This female Pens fan let it be known that she wants Crosby’s next head injury to come via her bedroom headboard. Her parents must be so proud. The post This female Penguins fan would like Sidney Crosby’s next concussion to come via her headboard appeared first on The Nosebleeds.
It has been well-documented that Sidney Crosby has suffered through issues from concussions throughout the years. However it has gotten so bad that his own supporters are making jokes about it. This amorous Pittsburgh Penguins fan wants to give her beloved Sidney another concussion, but not from playing hockey, but from a raucous lovemaking session.
Well if you’re going to have...
There's no shortage of Sidney Crosby fans in Pittsburgh but this female admirer gave crashing the boards a whole new meaning. The woman was captured by television cameras during the rivalry night game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night:Too bad for her, the oft-concussed Sid is already taken.
Welcome back James Neal!
While he returned to the ice earlier in the week against the St. Louis Blues, last night against the Nashville Predators was when he really returned to form.
Looking every bit the sharpshooter we've come to know and love, Neal once again seemed at ease skating with Evgeni Malkin.
Talent helps make talent better. Neal would not...
First off...I COMPLETELY APOLOGIZE for posting an image of the harshest moment in semi-recent Pirates memory. It hurt me just uploading it to my site as much as it likely pains you to see it again.
Now on to more important findings. Deadspin has compiled a list of random and unique responses that fans have gotten from athletes. Some expectant-father Braves fan received an autographed...
Evgeni Malkin is "slumping." So is Sidney Crosby. To many this is worrisome. To me? Not so much.

from Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
How could it be?
Sidney Crosby went into the Penguins' game Wednesday night against the Philadelphia Flyers without a goal in seven games. Evgeni Malkin hadn't scored one in 10.
How could it be that the two stars failed to shine for so long?
The Penguins are paying big, big money to Crosby and Malkin to deliver...
Yep, you read that title correctly. Check out the sign this Penguins fan was holding at the Flyers-Penguins game last night:

The Flyers and Penguins will meet for the second time this year on Wednesday night. Tonightâs game will be on national TV as a part of NBCSNâs rivalry series. In the first matchup of the year the Penguins beat the Flyers 4-1. Evgeni Malkin scored the 4th goal of the game and...
Much to the delight of Pens' fans everywhere, the first month of the Philadelphia Flyers' campaign served as nothing more than a metaphorical pit of quicksand. From the early firing of Peter Laviolette to Claude Giroux's goal scoring ineptitude, it's hard to imagine more of an early season train wreck in The City of Brothery Love.
And, while the Flyers are...

Last Game for the Penguins: Wednesday, a 2-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers. Pittsburgh outshot Philadelphia 31-21 but failed to score more than one goal. The Penguins lone goal came from Sidney Crosby who broke an eight-game goal drought.
Last Game for the Predators: Tuesday, 3-1 loss against the New York Islanders. After two-straight games...
The Penguins honored veterans before the game. In keeping with the government theme, the Pens’ offense is performing like healthcare.gov.
Here’s what sticks out:
The Penguins have now gone three games without an even-strength goal.
That is just a troubling...
