Tyler Kennedy played the best hockey of his career following injuries to stars last season, but that's not been the case lately.

Malkin now tied for NHL point leader

Evgeni Malkin has stepped in a big way in the last week.  In his last 5 games he has amassed an impressive 13 points, 5 goals and 8 assists.   In last night’s win over the streaking Chicago Blackhawks, who had previously won 5 straight games, Malkin had a hand in all three goals that were scored to put the Pens over the top for the win. Of the 3 others he is tied with at the...

Malkin leads Penguins with three assists

Evgeni Malkin had three assists to move into a tie for the NHL scoring lead and the Pittsburgh Penguins snapped the Chicago Blackhawks' five-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory on Tuesday night. Malkin assisted on goals by Chris Kunitz, James Neal and Tyler Kennedy, giving him points in all six games since Penguins captain Sidney Crosby left the lineup again because of concussion...

Players slow to adopt new helmet

Sidney Crosby came back -- and soon was forced out of the Pittsburgh Penguins lineup with another concussion -- with nearly the same helmet. Claude Giroux, like many in the NHL, wears the same brand helmet as the gloves, sticks and skates he uses as part of a sponsorship agreement. His fellow concussed Philadelphia Flyers teammate Chris Pronger didn't change his helmet despite...

The Case For Suspending Deryk Engelland

Just because we're a fan blog, doesn't mean we can't have differing opinions like human beings... It's understandable why this post was made. Derek and/or Adam (no idea who wrote it) is a Penguins fan and, especially with the Pens defense suffering from every injury right now, it would hurt the Penguins if Engelland missed any time. It's also tough...

Crosby Named Youth Olympic Games Ambassador

The International Olympic Committee announced that ice hockey phenom Sidney Crosby has become its fifth and final Youth Olympic Games Ambassador for the first edition of the Winter Youth Olympic Games in Innsbruck from 13 to 22 January 2012. Cr...

PHT: Malkin, Pens cool off hot 'Hawks

PHT: Evgeni Malkin had three assists to move into a tie for the NHL scoring lead and Pittsburgh snapped Chicago's five-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory on Tuesday.

Tuesdays With Stoosh 12.20.2011

In which Santa Stoosh squeezes his fat ass down that chimney and finds the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse... Or we just check some Christmas wish lists, Pittsburgh Penguins-style.   Sidney Crosby Doc Brown's DeLorean and enough plutonium to get him back to the morning of January 1, 2011.   Evgeni Malkin Some...

Unexpected - Penguins 8, Sabres 3

So what happened? This was a surprise.  The only other game this season that was this lopsided was Crosby's return against the Islanders. The Pens dominated almost from the drop of the puck.  Chris Kunitz established a physical tone early on, and the team (and crowd) fed off of that and never looked back. It didn't hurt that they were playing against two goalies...

Crosby chosen as 'ambassador' for Youth Olympics

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is lending his support to the first Winter Youth Olympics.

Penguins push win to the limit

Perhaps it shouldn't have gotten this exciting. Not when the Penguins had a three-goal lead after two periods. Not when they were playing at home. Not when goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury was as sharp and focused as he has been at any point this season.

Malkin has 3 assists in Pens' win over Blackhawks

Evgeni Malkin had three assists to move into a tie for the NHL scoring lead and the Pittsburgh Penguins snapped the Chicago Blackhawks' five-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory on Tuesday night.


The Penguins were kind of in a weird place where they didn't look 100% like a real hockey team all the time and there were all these depressing stats about how the Pens lost every single game ever to every team that has ever been worthy of the playoffs. Well, tonight the Pens hung with the team that had the top spot in the NHL. They managed to control the play for the most...
