We totally forgot this was even an award.
From the NHL:
Shero made the seventh season of his tenure in Pittsburgh an active one. Unable to sign Jordan Staal, he traded the third-line center to the Carolina Hurricanes for his replacement, the solid Brandon Sutter, and also acquired backup goalie Tomas Vokoun. And then at the NHL Trade Deadline, he acquired forwards Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow and Jussi Jokinen and defenseman Douglas Murray without surrendering a player off his current roster. Despite sustaining injuries to Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang, the Penguins never stumbled and finished atop the Eastern Conference standings.
Marc Bergevin of the Montreal Canadiens and Bob Murray of the Anaheim Ducks are the other nominees.
BEST OF MAXIM
I… I really don’t even know what to say about this. How the hell does one even have that much body hair to do something like this? And at what point did this seem like a good idea to walk around the concourse like this? Oh wait, it’s Pittsburgh? Hell, this probably isn’t even the weirdest body hair arrangement at the game tonight.
The National Hockey League announced the dates, times and national broadcast information on Monday for the 2013 Stanley Cup Conference Semifinal round, which begins Tuesday, May 14. The top seeded Pittsburgh Penguins
The Pittsburgh Penguins are sticking with goaltender Tomas Vokoun for Game 1 of their second-round playoff series against Ottawa on Tuesday.
The 36-year-old Vokoun replaced struggling starter Marc-Andre Fleury and won Games 5 and 6 of Pittsburgh's first-round playoff series with the New York Islanders last week. He stopped 66 of the 69 shots he faced against the Islanders as...
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness….”
This opening line of “A Tale of Two Cities” was quite possibly written for the 2012-13 Pittsburgh Penguins playoff team. At times the Penguins were the dominant team that everyone expected them to be, and other times they looked like they were overwhelmed and...
Marc Bergevin of the Montreal Canadiens, Bob Murray of the Anaheim Ducks and the Pittsburgh Penguins' Ray Shero on Monday were named the finalists for the 2013 NHL General Manager of the Year Award.
The award is voted on by the 30 NHL GMs and a panel of NHL executives and members of the print and broadcast media.
Personally, I'm still trying to figure out if I'm impressed by the dedication of this Pittsburgh Penguins fan or if I should be totally grossed out.

The Ottawa Senators will tell you that they are going to worry about playing playoff hockey and not Pittsburgh Penguins forward Matt Cooke. They will say all of the right things about being focused and not letting one person get to them. I’m not buying it. Prior to the last meeting between the Penguins and [...]
Another award nomination for Sid and for a member of the Penguins. From the NHL:
Crosby, 25, missed most of the previous two seasons dealing with concussion issues, and then the first half of the 2012-13 season -- along with the rest of the League -- during the lockout. Questions were asked if Crosby ever could be the same player he was prior to his injuries. Instead, he returned...
For whatever reason, the Penguins and Senators have met an unrealistic amount of times in the playoffs. This year's series does mark the first time they haven't met in the first round.
The matchups have delivered some great moments.
First, some honorable mentions.

Penguins star Sidney Crosby, Wild goaltender Josh Harding and Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid are this season's nominees for the NHL's Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.
The award is presented to ''the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.''
Crosby returned to form this year after missing extended...
The celebration, at least by the typically all-business standards of the Pittsburgh Penguins, appeared a little over the top.
The second Brooks Orpik's slapshot ripped into the back of the net 7:49 into overtime last Saturday to give the Penguins a 4-3 overtime win and a first-round playoff series victory over the better-than-advertised New York Islanders, Orpik's teammates...
Anybody who thought the Islanders couldn't top the heartbreak of Game Three was proven wrong last night after they were eliminated from the playoffs last night by the Pittsburgh Penguins on the heels of an overtime goal by Brooks Orpik. The whole game was pretty similar to how Game Three went where the Islanders vastly outplayed the Penguins in just about every area but goaltending...
I want to take a couple of minutes to step away from all of the playoff talk going on right now to talk about a way that our readership can help out a cause that is near and dear to my heart and benefit yourselves as well. Many of you may not know it, but we have a wonderful little museum here in Pittsburgh called the Toonseum. It is a museum dedicated to preserving comics and...
Game one in the Penguins/Senators series will take place on Tuesday at 7:30. From the NHL:
The 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs Conference Semifinal round starts Tuesday, May 14, with a doubleheader, the National Hockey League announced today. Game 1 in the Eastern Conference Semifinal series between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators will be played at 7:30 p.m. ET at CONSOL...
Still no word on Game 1. Bruin/Leafs and Caps/Rangers seventh heaven tonight.
We saw the Pens reaction to Orpik's goal. Now here is some fan reaction.
