Steel City Sports Report:
Before the start of the game, Evgeni Malkin was scratched with an upper body injury. The injury may have been sustained two nights before when Malkin took a huge hit into the boards. With the Penguins forced to play Florida without three of their top skill players, they turned to gritty forwards and punishing defense to grind out a 3-1 win, Saturday night.Pittsburgh outhit Florida 40-25 and ramped up the physicality as the game went on. Brooks Orpik had a crushing hit along the boards, Chris Kunitz followed by running over another Panthers player moments later, and Pascal Dupuis wrecked Tomas Fleischmann late in the third period. The Penguins took a 1-0 lead 14:49 into the opening period on Kris Letang's fourth goal of the season. Beau Bennett fed Letang for a shot from the point and the puck beat Jacob Markstrom who appeared to be screened in front by Brenden Morrow. Morrow would score again just a few minutes later, setup once again by Bennett. The rookie, Bennett, circ...

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...
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...
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.

The Florida Panthers Fox Sports Florida announcers Steve Goldstein and Bill Lindsay appear to have finally lost their minds because of their brutal team. On Thursday night the Panthers were losing to the Winnipeg Jets 7-2 and the Panthers inched closer to playoff elimination, all while the Jets fans started to do the wave. Goldstein and Lindsay chose to mail it in for the last...
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.
Hyped Up Hockey is happy to introduce and welcome our newest writer Matthew Albright! Matt will primarily be writing about the Penguins, but as he is an avid Pittsburgh sports fan, he is flexible to write about all things Burgh related. He has been writing for us for about a week now, so it is [...]
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)
ROOT, SUN - 7:30 pm/et
BB&T Center - Sunrise, FL
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.
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...
Boring. Really boring game. But I suppose that was to be expected. There is literally nothing that is good about the Florida Panthers. They are the worst team in the east and arguably the worst team in the league. Combine that with a Pens team that played without their three best players and it equals…

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...
By Matthew Albright 4/13/2013 Following a huge 6-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Pittsburgh Penguins are set to face the Florida Panthers on Saturday at 7:30 P.M. 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 [...]
Follow me on twitter @IanEsplen to chat hockey, sports and life in general anytime The other day, Ek made a case for Jonathan Huberdeau as the leading candidate to take home the Calder in a few months. While Huberdeau is very likely the guy to beat for the award, I couldnât help but notice two players missing from his list. Jonas Brodin No one seems to really talk much about Brod...

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. -- Erik Gudbranson and Shawn Matthias have a friendly reminder for fellow NHLers visiting South Florida: wear your sunblock.
A day after rumors swirled suggesting Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin missed Saturday night's game after getting scorched in the Sunshine State, the Panthers duo had their own encounter with the sun. (The Penguins, by the...
