PUCKFATHER: What Do You Know, Sidney Crosby is Human After All

When you really think about it, boy have we been taking Sidney Crosby for granted. Come to think of it, just about everyone's been taking Sidney Crosby for granted.   For six years now, we've seen Crosby face the cameras at nearly every conceivable media opportunity. Off-day?  There's Sid.  Practice Day?  There's Sid.  Game-day...

Status for Crosby: status quo

Despite some confusion following Monday's practice, the return of Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby remains on hold. Although he skated on a line with Evgeni Malkov and James Neal during Monday's practice, Crosby was officially ruled out for Tuesday night's game against the Colorado Avalanche. Crosby was the last player to leave the ice Monday but declined...

The 21-year-old has been one of the few weak links on an otherwise strong Buffalo team, registering four...

Since it has been said that he will play his first game at home, that moves the next possible date to next Monday against the Islanders.If you missed last night's Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremony,'s HHOF blog has all the details and the videos of...

No Sidney Crosby tonight

PITTSBURGH – The Avs will avoid the return of Sidney Crosby, as the Penguins star still isn’t ready to return to the lineup. Here is some video I shot of him at the morning skate just now at the very pretty Consol Energy Center: Tyler Kennedy and Steve Sullivan will be game-time decisions for the Pens. Off to see the Avs skate now.

Ruff Benches Myers, Inserts Weber

In a pretty surprising move, Sabres head coach Lindy Ruff has benched defensemen Tyler Myers in favor of Mike Weber. Myers told WGR’s Paul Hamilton he knew it could happen. “I knew it was possible, I knew I was on thin ice. This is a step to make sure it opens my eyes and be ready to prevent it from happening again. The way I’ve been playing the last three out of four, it...

Sidney Crosby's status vs. Colorado Avalanche tonight still uncertain

How Does Your Team Rank?

ESPN with their weekly rankings… 1. Blackhawks 11-4-3 The Blackhawks are in a groove, at least offensively, as they won their third straight game Sunday night after going winless in three to take over top spot in the NHL standings. 2. Penguins 10-4-3 A big win at home against Dallas on Friday was followed by disappointing loss in Carolina on Saturday. But the Pens, still awaiting...

Gameday 18 - Avalanche

Colorado Avalanche (8-8-1) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (10-4-3) 7:30 pm/et TV: Versus, TSN2 CONSOL Energy Center, Pittsburgh, PA It looks like Tyler Kennedy may be in the line-up tonight, proving once and for all that his brain is tougher than Sidney Crosby's brain. Of course, Kennedy isn't a Ferrari, so he can probably just go to a regular mechanic...

Avalanche-Penguins Preview

Falling behind early has become a trend of late for the Colorado Avalanche, contributing greatly to their recent slump. They'll look for a better start Tuesday night when they visit the Pittsburgh Penguins, who remain among the Eastern Conference's best while awaiting the season debut of Sidney Crosby. Colorado fell behind Calgary 4-0 midway through the second period Saturday...

Neal Before Me!

I’ve been an outspoken critic of James Neal this season but he continues to spit in my face with games like last night.  A Goal and a pair of Assists gives Neal 20 Points in 18 games.  Who needs Sidney Crosby?  It’s clearly time to throw out his first 4 years in the NHL when he averaged 46 Points a season.  I would be shocked if he kept this up and finished with 85 points...
