Looks familiar, doesn't it?
As another spring is (barely) inching closer by the day, the Penguins are on yet another roll, winners of nine straight. The Pens' first line of Kunitz/Crosby/Dupuis are playing out of their minds. Even their defense, which was much maligned not very long ago, is playing much, much better.
And all this recently without Evgeni Malkin. You know, the reigning MVP.
So yes, the Penguins are playing fantastic hockey. But it would behoove the Pens if they remembered their play of recent springs and remember the lessons learned. Continue reading "Penguins Have Seen This Fish Before"

The Pittsburgh Penguins are known for their explosive offense, but Sunday’s tilt with the Bruins was a defensive affair. The two teams combined for just three goals, and the game-winner came courtesy of an unlikely source.
Northeastern alum Joe Vitale scored for just the sixth time in his NHL career — and the first time since last February — with 32 seconds remaining in the...
The NHL's GM meetings take place in Toronto this week, starting Wednesday, and there could be some movement on the trade front by the weekend as a result.As Elliotte Friedman, among others, reported yesterday, prices for trade pieces are extremely high due to over 80% of the league still currently in contention for a playoff spot. As bad as the Washington Capitals have played...
Marc-Andre Fleury couldn't help it. With the Pittsburgh Penguins' franchise record for career shutouts in sight late in the third period against the New York Rangers on Saturday, the talented if occasionally erratic goalie let his mind drift.
''I wanted it so bad,'' Fleury said. ''I tried to not jinx it. I was touching wood, but yeah I was looking...
The Pittsburgh Penguins have played splendidly in spite of the absence of superstar Evgeni Malkin, but they might have another key player missing in their next game.
Defenseman Kris Letang's status is unknown as Pittsburgh seeks the franchise's fifth win streak of 10 or more games Tuesday night against the visiting Washington Capitals.
Malkin, the league's reigning...
The Bruins faced a tough test against the Penguins on Sunday. Unfortunately, they didn’t quite make the grade.
Despite a strong effort and a late push to even things up, Boston couldn’t find a way to break through against a stingy Pittsburgh defense. Tomas Vokoun made 31 saves in a strong performance, Sidney Crosby scored a goal and generally, the Penguins just looked better...
Colligan drops some knowledge in his latest joint about Chris Stewart:
That leaves two possible names that could fit into a potential Stewart deal: Brooks Orpik and Matt Niskanen.
On one hand, it’s wild to even suggest a trade of Orpik. He’s been with the organization his entire career and brings a physical presence that’s unmatched by any other regular defenseman...
Sidney Crosby and Joe Vitale scored for the Penguins as they came away with a 2-1 win over Boston, their ninth straight victory. Tomas Vokoun made 31 saves in the win and only allowed Tyler Seguin’s 1oth goal of the season to Boston.
SPIN: Pittsburgh took over the top spot in the Eastern Conference even as Evgeni Malkin missed his fifth straight game. Defenseman Kris Letang wasn’t...
from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet,
... this summer will probably see a NHL player sign a deal that averages at least $10 million per season for the first time in roughly a decade. Pittsburgh Penguins centre Evgeni Malkin should be able to command that type of money when negotiations begin on an extension that will start in 2014.
Ray Shero, the Penguins general manager, has...

Boston Bruins (19-4-3) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (21-8-0)
NBC, NHLN-CA, RDS - 12:30 pm/et
Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA
We imagine that someone scheduled this Penguins/Bruins game for 12:30pm on St. Patrick's Day and then laughed.
Season Series: 1-0-0
Last meeting that counted: March 12, 2013. Penguins won 3-2.

The Rangers fell to the Pittsburgh Penguins today by the score of 3-0. For a box score, click here.
Little to no positives to take away from today's game... looked like a typical Rangers-Pens game to me.
If not for Hank, the Rangers are probably looking at a 4-0 deficit after one and possibly Glen Sather working the phones in a room somewhere, if...
Last week, some trailer featuring Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin in a Russian movie titled 12 Months debuted. Today, we translate.
The basis of this movie falls on some cute woman who gets wishes that were meant for a kid. Or something along those lines. And the kid wants to meet or play hockey with Geno and Ilya Kovalchuk. Even in Russia, Alex Ovechkin is 2nd tier.
