Sidney Crosby hears winter's call in walk to arena

Sidney Crosby fed his inner Canadian by walking to his team's pre-game skate. ''I just wanted to get outside and experience a Canadian winter again,'' said Crosby, whose Pittsburgh Penguins play the Winnipeg Jets on Friday night. ''Believe it or not you miss it a little bit. You miss seeing the snow.'' Winnipeg delivered on the snow with a side...

Can the Penguins win the Stanley Cup?

The shortened season that the NHL has so “graciously” provided us, is going to provide for a quick, fast paced season, and one in which you had better have some star power providing some punch, or this season will fly right on by without you even getting a chance to gain some momentum. Usually a team at this point in a non-shortened season, is learning itself and figuring out...

Crosby Back To Normal

from Chris Johnston now of Sportsnet, What stands out most during a few days around the Penguins in the early stages of the 48-game season is how significantly Crosby's narrative has changed. No longer is he asked endlessly about the well-documented concussion and neck injuries that cost him most of the last two seasons. Even the frustration stemming from a lockout took...

Colton Orr Closes Deryk Engelland’s Eye Via Long Brawl Last Night In Pittsburgh

The Maple Leafs’ Colton Orr and Pittsbugh’s Deryk Engelland renewed their pugilistic rivalry last night with one of the better fights in the history of this relationship.

Rangers acquire Benn Ferriero from Penguins for Chad Kolarik

In a bit of a surprising move, the Rangers have traded forward Chad Kolarik to the Penguins for forward Benn Ferriero. The move struck everyone as a bit of a surprise, considering Kolarik’s strong play with the Whale in the AHL. Whale expert Laurie Carr (Beyond The Blueshirts) noted on Twitter that Kolarik may have requested the trade, especially after not receiving a training...

Colton Orr And Deryk Engelland Beat The Crap Out Of Each Other (Again) Last Night

Colton Orr and Derek Engelland have a rivalry that dates all the way back to 2000, when they first dropped the gloves as youngsters in the Western Hockey League (WHL), and then later in the AHL and NHL. As you can see from the video above, that rivalry still burns pretty good to this day. Engelland has a history of getting the better of Orr (see here and here) but this latest bout...

Engo's eye didn't end up so well:  

weep for it

I am recapping on the fly tonight because the Penguins are the only thing in the world that could possibly excite me the night before a 7AM dentist appointment. I won't be sticking around for the press to post their pics so you're just going to have to deal.  I'm sure Canada covered all of their photos in semen so I don't want to show you anything too lo-res...
