Bleed Black & Gold:
Kris Letang was on the ice this morning for the first time since he took a shot to the head on February 29th in Dallas. He skated with Deryk Engelland who has also been out with injury.
Letang & Engelland just finished up some pre-practice on-ice work at @CONSOLEnergyCtr #Pens -SK

The Tribune Review reported that the on ice workout lasted for over 35 minutes and was “briskly paced”. There is no reported timetable for either Letang or Engelland’s return.
BEST OF MAXIM
Yesterday on a near picture perfect day in Pittsburgh the city and the Penguins unveiled a statue of Penguins great and now part owner Mario Lemieux. Lemieux is one of the biggest reason that the city has the Consol Energy Center and why we still have a hockey team. He was one of the best to ever play the game anywhere and will always be a legend in Pittsburgh. And now he will...
The Pittsburgh Penguins honored their past Wednesday, unveiling a bronze statue outside Consol Energy Center showcasing the singular talents of Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux.
Then the Penguins went out and showed the present looks pretty good, too.

James Neal and All-Star Evgeni Malkin scored in the shootout and Marc-Andre Fleury denied both attempts as the Pittsburgh Penguins posted a 2-1 triumph over the visiting Florida Panthers to match a season high with their eighth consecutive victory on Friday.

Sidney Crosby said that he'll know Saturday whether or not he can play this Sunday against the Boston Bruins. Crosby suffered a concussion 15 months ago and made his return earlier this season on November 21st. He played eight games until some of his concussion-like symptoms returned which ended his short lived return. Since then, he has been out."(You) just kind of see...
PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Steve Sullivan scored the tying goal in the third period, and James Neal and Evgeni Malkin connected in the first two rounds of a shootout to lift the Pittsburgh Penguins to their eighth straight victory, 2-1 over the Florida Panthers on Friday night.
Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 28 shots and was perfect in the shootout for his 36th victory of the season, putting...
The story of Sidney Crosby and his concussion added another chapter today as Crosby, who was rumoured to be returning tomorrow afternoon against the Boston Bruins, will miss at least one more game.
According to Darren Dreger of TSN, Crosby will sit out tomorrow’s game, but he is hopeful to return on Thursday night when the Penguins visit the New York Rangers. That doesn’t mean...
Is a Sidney Crosby return finally around the corner? Perhaps, but one player who has nearly the pedigree of Crosby has his own concussion issues, but is not receiving the attention that Sid the Kid is. I’ve included both players in my Pick Six for the weekend.
But first, here’s what you need to know heading into the weekend.
A total of 22 teams are in action on Saturday, while...
After practice today, Crosby was unsure about returning to action on Sunday.
He said he hasn’t had much practice time and no need to rush return now.
So, we wait another day to find out.
But if you want to read between the lines, what do you think?
Unidentified fan wears Mario Lemieux jersey with name misspelled
The fan in the picture is apparently a fan of Pittsburgh Penguins hockey legend Mario Lemieux. However, it is painfully obvious that he is not very smart. Not only did this man pay for a jersey with Lemieux's name misspelled (the name on the jersey is Lemiexu), but he is wearing it in public. This may be...
via TSN, Sidney Crosby will not suit up on Sunday against the Boston Bruins, but is hopeful that he can play on Thursday against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.
Crosby practiced on Saturday morning with the Penguins but did not skate on a regular line. He centred an extra line between Eric Tangradi and Dustin Jeffrey.
The 24-year-old superstar has no setback or symptoms...
Sidney Crosby's return is drawing near, which may be very bad news for the rest of the league since the Pittsburgh Penguins have been rolling without him.
Pittsburgh seeks a season-high ninth consecutive victory by ending a three-game home skid to the Boston Bruins on Sunday.
The Penguins initially hoped Crosby could return in time to face Boston, but he approached the contest...
Since the calendar flipped to 2012 it seemed improbable that the Pittsburgh Penguins would be able to catch the New York Rangers in the race for the Atlantic Division crown. It seemed even less probable when the Boston Bruins blew a lead against the Rangers last Sunday and allowed the boys from Broadway to pull ahead of the Birds by ten points.
