Sidney Crosby has been skating in full gear and working out at home. You can read “They have yet to set a timetable on when Sidney Crosby will return” all over the internet. It is this simple, Crosby doesn’t have a concussion, he sets his own timetable. Penguins Evgeni Malkin appeared out of the blue yesterday afternoon and announced he was playing last night, why not...
It’s going to take a lot more than a broken jaw suffered less than a month ago to keep Sidney Crosby out of the playoffs.
The Penguins’ star hasn’t played since March 30, when he took a puck to the mouth and underwent major surgery, but according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Crosby is expected to seek medical clearance Thursday or Friday to get back on the ice.
If he gets...
While there may have been a trade-day mix-up about where Jarome Iginla was headed, there’s no question what city he’s leaving behind.
Iginla appears to be ready to part ways with Calgary for good, as he’s put his $3.995 million two-story home with a city view on sale.
The 35-year-old Iginla spent his entire 16-year career in Calgary until right before the trade deadline this...
After a hard fought 3-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Monday night, Penguins’ Dan Bylsma was the fastest coach in NHL history to reach 200 wins. In 316 games, Bylsma has a record of 200-91-25 in coaching the Pittsburgh Penguins. Although, this is not much of a surprise as you look at his accomplishments [...]

Halfway through the second period of the Ottawa Senators-Pittsburgh Penguins game on Monday night, Senators forward Chris Neil absolutely obliterated Penguins defenseman Simon Despres. Neil was given a two-minute minor for charging on the play, despite the fact that he glided right into Despres. The only reason this was called a penalty was because of the magnitude of the hit...
On Monday evening, the Pittsburgh Penguins traveled to Scotiabank Place to take on the Ottawa Senators in their first trip to the Canadian capital since Erik Karlsson’s Achilles tendon was partially severed by Cooke's skate. While the spotlight should’ve been on the Penguins’ 3-1 victory, the main headline became about an interaction between Cooke and Don Brennan, a reporter...
Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby has returned to practice, but his status for next week's playoff opener remains uncertain.
Crosby hasn't played since breaking his jaw last month. He took part in non-contact drills on Friday, wearing a protective facemask that he'll likely keep on for the duration of the postseason.
The NHL's second-leading scorer says he...

Clarkson said he hasn’t thought about whether tonight’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins could be his last home game as a Devil. After facing the Penguins, the Devils close out the season Saturday afternoon against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden and Clarkson doesn’t know what will happen after that.
