Bleed Black & Gold:
The Penguins rallied from two multiple goal deficits by scoring four times in the 3rd period to win Tuesday night at the Consol Energy Center. The Penguins played a careless first period falling down 2-0 and 3-1, but they showed signs of pulling it back together by cutting the Colorado lead in half going into the 3rd. In the final period, the Pens were absolutely dominant. The Avalanche had no answer for the Penguins up-tempo play as they poured on goal after goal en route to a 6-3 final score.
I’ve gotta say, this was quite the fun game to watch. It was very high paced and there were some jaw dropping goals scored by both sides. My two favorites came from Duchene for the Avs and Malkin. Duchene collected a pass in the 1st period skating towards the far boards in the slot and corraled it by bringing it through his legs from behind him where he fired a backhand by a helpless Fleury. It was seriously a video game goal. Then, not to be outdone, Malkin put up a highlight goal o...

Dustin Jeffrey returns early from a two-week conditioning stint with Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday. Jeffrey played in only two games for the Baby Pens, tallying one assist. He was pointless in six games prior to spending time in the AHL. Tyler Kennedy appears set for...
The Penguins recalled forward Dustin Jeffrey from his conditioning assignment with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Tuesday, but that does not mean he will become a regular in the lineup. He is still dealing with the effects of April surgery on his right knee.
Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has been ruled out of the game tonight at Tampa Bay. Beyond that? "Any speculation further away is not going to happen at this time," coach Dan Bylsma said Wednesday. "He will be with us on the trip." The Penguins also will play Saturday at Florida before they have a three-game homestand next week.
PITTSBURGH – I don’t know quite how to classify my thoughts on this one tonight. On the one hand, I believe the Avs fully deserved to lose because of some bad plays and decisions when it mattered most. On the other hand, I feel like they were victimized by a hometown officiating crew that got a couple of calls very wrong and really affected the outcome.
But as truth usually meets...

Coach Dan Bylsma said Steve Sullivan and Tyler Kennedy would be "game-time decisions" for the Penguins' game against Colorado at Consol Energy Center.
The Penguins have recalled forward Dustin Jeffrey, who has been on a conditioning assignment with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League.
When the Avalanche plays the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight, one potential distraction won't be there: Sidney Crosby.
The Pittsburgh Penguins will be a slight road favorite as they visit the Tampa Bay Lightning in Thursday night NHL betting action.
Tampa Bay seemed to kick things into high gear with a three-game win streak, but they have since dropped back-to-back outings. The Lightning can take inspiration from their triumph over the Penguins in last season’s playoffs, but...
In which we talk Stars, Neal, Letang, powerplays both on ice and off, and John Matrix scouts a prospect.
I made my first trip to Consol for an actual game this past Friday night to see the Pens and Stars. It marked the first time I’ve seen this team play live since training camp, so naturally I have some thoughts, dudes…
It was a great game to...
