Found May 15, 2013 on Fox Sports:
The formula for beating the Pittsburgh Penguins is not difficult. It's the doing it for 60 minutes part that's tricky. The Ottawa Senators did everything they thought they needed to do against the Penguins in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Tuesday night. They carried play for long stretches, put steady pressure on Pittsburgh goaltender Tomas Vokoun and mostly stayed out of trouble, taking just three penalties. Two too many, as it turned out. Pittsburgh's thriving power play scored twice to stay red-hot and the Penguins rolled to a 4-1 win. Not bad for a team that continues to tinker with its special teams trying to find the right formula. Whatever it is at the moment, it's working. Paul Martin and Chris Kunitz scored power-play goals as the Penguins improved to 9 for 24 with the man advantage in the playoffs. ''Their power play is good,'' Ottawa goaltender Craig Anderson said. ''We knew that going in and if we want to have g...

Penguins fan with gross team spirit

I… I really don’t even know what to say about this.  How the hell does one even have that much body hair to do something like this?  And at what point did this seem like a good idea to walk around the concourse like this? Oh wait, it’s Pittsburgh?  Hell, this probably isn’t even the weirdest body hair arrangement at the game tonight.

Vokoun starting in goal for Penguins

The Pittsburgh Penguins are sticking with goaltender Tomas Vokoun for Game 1 of their second-round playoff series against Ottawa on Tuesday. The 36-year-old Vokoun replaced struggling starter Marc-Andre Fleury and won Games 5 and 6 of Pittsburgh's first-round playoff series with the New York Islanders last week.

Sidney Crosby is a Finalist for the Masterton

Another award nomination for Sid and for a member of the Penguins. From the NHL: Crosby, 25, missed most of the previous two seasons dealing with concussion issues, and then the first half of the 2012-13 season -- along with the rest of the League -- during the lockout. Questions were asked if Crosby ever could be the same player he was prior to his injuries. Instead, he returned...

Don Cherry thinks the Senators are a bit feminine

That didn't take long. The second round just got underway and Don Cherry already said something that angered fans, specifically those supporting the Ottawa Senators. What did he say this time? He ripped on the Ottawa Senators for a variety of things outside of their play on the ice, alluding to the fact that they have some feminine qualities.  Cherry slams Daniel Alfredsson...

Senators-Penguins Preview

Round Two, Game One: Penguins-Senators Recap

No one really likes to admit it but a lot of things change in the NHL playoffs as compared to the regular season. Fighting virtually disappears. Teams make a conscious effort to play smarter.

NHL playoffs: Best of Tuesday

Ottawa Senators pest Chris Neil is nasty and a pain to play against, but it looks like Brooks Oprik found a way to one-up him during Game 1, which the Penguins won 4-1 at Consol Energy Center. The Penguins defenseman gave Neil a double-cup-check during the third period. Neil's one tough dude. Brooks' first cup check actually lifts Neil off of his feet! Orpik was all over...
