BEST OF MAXIM

Things went from bad to worse as the slumping Penguins fell down to the 9th spot in the East. They simply couldn’t stop the bleeding. They kept competetive but they just couldn’t find the net with any consistancy and the 6 game slide starting in December threatened to be an endless trend as the list of injuries continued to grow. Sure, the Pens were fighting the injury...
The Penguins’ morning skate produced some good news and some bad news… let’s start with the bad: Arron Asham suffered his second concussion in less than a year and will miss tonight’s game and beyond. Asham’s is just the latest in a long line of concussions that have afflicted this team this season. He joins a list that already featured: Sidney Crosby, Zbynek Michalek,...
The three-game winning streak the Penguins have manufactured to counter their worst skid under Dan Bylsma is huge. But don’t go blowing your load just yet.
With the six-game slide that helped drop the Pens from first to ninth in the East in just a month, even with the three-game rebound, the Pens’ winning percentage over their last nine is still just .333. What people aren’t...
So what happened?
The Pens went to the shoot out for the first time in seemingly forever (the last time was Saturday, November 5th in Los Angeles).
Prior to that, there was a highly entertaining hockey game.
The Pens and Canes traded chances and generally played end-to-end hockey with no whistles for long stretches. I wouldn't say it had the intensity of a playoff...
Say what you want about the Penguins' Matt Cooke, but his transformation has been positively remarkable.
The headaches and dizziness that made it difficult for him to even get out of bed now gone, Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang returned to practice on Tuesday for the first time in nearly two months following a concussion sustained against Montreal in late November.
The Penguins were again without the injured Sidney Crosby, but his Pittsburgh teammates showed plenty of firepower against the Rangers.
Evgeni Malkin has played some terrific hockey lately. Quite possibly the finest of his career. But maybe, just maybe, not his best of this season. That, defenseman Brooks Orpik suggested after the Penguins' 2-1 shootout victory against Carolina Tuesday night at Consol Energy Center, might still be coming.

Evgeni Malkin doesn't necessarily go out on the ice with a game plan. The way he's playing, he doesn't exactly need one.
Richard Park scored the go-ahead goal 2:23 into the third period, Evgeni Malkin padded the lead with two, and workhorse Marc-Andre Fleury made 30 saves to give the suddenly hot Pittsburgh Penguins a 4-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Thursday night.

Paul Martin had a wide open net, but he refuses to score.
The Pittsburgh Penguins will try for a fourth straight victory this evening, when they visit the rival New York Rangers for an Atlantic Division showdown at Madison Square Garden.
