Florida Panthers (5-7-4) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (11-6-0) ROOT, FS-F, RDS2 - 7:00 pm/et Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA *Insert text that attempts to make a game against the Panthers seem really exciting and important here.* Season Series: 0-0-0 Last meeting that counted: March 9, 2012. Penguins won 2-1 [SO]. What we said in our recap: Is there a term for the Penguins under Bylsma in March? The last couple of years it has been cruise city in March. Really remarkable. Last night was no different. The Pens didn't play their best, but they trucked onward. A lot of talk about this game being an example of clutch and grab old NHL ****. Honestly, didn't think it was that terrible. Refs let both teams play, in our opinion. Know Your Enemy: Litter Box Cats What they're saying: Florida completes the Pennsylvania back to back tomorrow in Pittsburgh when they face the Penguins, who lost to Philadelphia on Wednesday. ...

Flyers somehow score with five Pens in crease

This was a completely bizarre series of events.  First off, how the puck stayed out of the net for so long is beyond me.  Second off, what on Earth was Penguins goalie Tomas Vokoun doing?  He was the only Penguin not in the crease. Phoenix Coyotes forward Paul Bissonnette described it best though. Well executed Harlem Shake during the Pens vs Flyers game tonight. twitter.com/BizNasty2point…...

Florida Panthers Suffering From Bad Goaltending, Numerous Injuries Say ‘The Instigators’ (Video)

What happened to the Florida Panthers? Just a year ago, they were one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference.

What We Expect from the Media Regarding Malkin's Concussion

The following is how we fully expect the media (and some fans) to react regarding Evgeni Malkin's concussion. This is not our opinion. This is a joke. Evgeni Malkin is experiencing concussion symptoms. Or so we're told. Of course, Malkin hasn't spoken to the media directly about the injury. It's just another sign that the Russian star doesn't "get...

RECAP: Collateral Damage. PENS WIN.

  Wednesday night, we were all treated to a great hockey game. Friday night, we got an ordinary one. No one would talk about this game ever again if it weren't for an apparent big-time injury to Evgeni Malkin. Malkin went crashing into the boards early in the third period. It looked horrible.    This game had a good pace to it at the beginning, but Florida was...
