This match-up will close out the Penguins’ three-game road trip. In the match-up against the Lightning, the Penguins received offensive power from familiar faces, sleeping giants, and [...]

When Penguins GM Ray Shero acquired veteran Jussi Jokinen from Carolina at the trade deadline for a conditional draft pick it almost seemed like an afterthought. After all, Shero had spent the previous week snatching up three of the hottest commodities on the market—Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow, and Douglas Murray.
But make no mistake—Jokinen’s the real deal. A quick, versatile...
Numerous reports flowing in via Twitter that Malkin will miss tonight's game in Florida due to a serious sunburn.
#Pens center Evgeni Malkin will not play tonight vs. Florida due to an upper-body injury
— Pittsburgh Penguins (@penguins) April 13, 2013
In his first game back since getting re-injured on March 26th, and only his 2nd game since March 17th, Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang had one of the best hits of the year. Letang drilled Tampa Bay Lightning forward Alex Killorn who went flying right into Martin St. Louis after he had just passed St. Louis the puck. Letang’s momentum then carried him into the two...
Jussi Jokinen scored two goals and added an assist, Pascal Dupuis had a goal and two assists, and the Eastern-Conference leading Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 6-3 Thursday night.
Chris Kunitz, Evgeni Malkin and Tanner Glass had the other Pittsburgh goals. Dupuis has three goals and eight points during a four-game points streak.
Pittsburgh defenseman Kris Letang...
SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -- Brenden Morrow scored two goals to lift the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 3-1 victory over the Florida Panthers on Saturday.
Kris Letang also scored for Pittsburgh and Marc-Andre Fleury made 25 saves. Morrow also had an assist.
Pittsburgh center Evgeni Malkin missed the game with an upper body injury. The Penguins were also without Sidney Crosby, who is out indefinitely...
Thursday night’s game did not provide any kind of hope for the Lightning’s playoff chances. Frustrations flared and tempers mounted in their 6-3 loss to Pittsburgh. The Bolts defense was offensive once again. They allowed 41 shots on goal and had strings of bad penalties in their defensive zone. And four of the six Pittsburgh goals were on a power play. The offense wasn’t...

The rink managers at the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Console Energy Center seem to have a sense of humor. They copied the iconic Notre Dame motto “Play Like A Champion Today” and made their own. When you Zamboni the ice, it’s commonly known as “flooding” the ice, hence the motto.
Speculation is a killer. Before the game some members of the media speculated Evgeni Malkin had a sunburn:
In Molinari's defense he may have been joking, and he wasn't the only one.
But it turned into this:
'sunburn' is now trending in #Pittsburgh trendsmap.com/us/pittsburgh

Stormed last night in Pittsburgh and today we play the Bolts.Root is just spazzing over the pun possibilities. We're going to try to avoid it, but if they total 2 goals in the game...There's going to have to be a striking twice joke. So sorry in advance. Let's get to the awards.
MOST POWERFUL OVERLORDSid shows up in a suit. He's watching.Waiting.BEST RESULTS...
While they're still missing several key players, the Pittsburgh Penguins have had little trouble generating offense the last two games as they continue their push for the best record in the Eastern Conference.
That trend could continue Saturday night as they visit a last-place Florida Panthers team that's allowed the most goals in the conference by far.
Seeking their fourth...
Rewind back to the end of the Flyers series last season. What would your brain have done if you could've seen the Pens' stat lines in this game? Jussi Jokinen: 2G, 1A. Jarome Iginla: 2A. Brenden Morrow: 1A. Douglas Murray: 1A. wtf.
Three things about this game.
1. The Pens are the deepest they've been since the '09 Cup run.
2. Tampa Bay sucks.
from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun,
Here is a look, in no particular order, at 10 of the more prominent UFAs who are poised to hit the market.
1. F Jarome Iginla, 35, Penguins
Iginla’s streak of 11-consecutive 30-goal seasons is about to come to an end, but he could still provide some pop and leadership even in this, the downside of his career. Interesting to see...
The Pittsburgh Penguins are good. The Florida Panthers are bad. I could end this preview now and it would probably be sufficient to describe what is going to happen tonight. The brilliant folks who write the schedule for the NHL should probably stop giving Florida home games by about mid-season at this point. There will…
Pittsburgh Penguins (31-10-0) @ Florida Panthers (13-21-6)

It's the 1st-place team in the Eastern Conference against the 15th-place team. Will the Pens stay focused against a weaker opponent?
Season Series: 1-1-0
Last meeting that counted: February 26, 2013. Penguins lost 6-4.
