From the St. Catherines Standard's Dan Dakin:
Standing there in front of little Rowan Langille was the guy whose name is on his favourite hockey stick. The guy who he watches playing his favourite sport on television. The guy who is easily his favourite player in the NHL.
Sidney Crosby crouched down to be at eye level with the four-year-old boy fighting cancer that started in his brain and has spread to his spine and the two smiled.
It was a special moment for everyone in the room. “We've got some real Penguins fans here,” Crosby said as he looked at Rowan and his three siblings – all of whom were wearing Pittsburgh ball caps or had some piece of Penguins gear on them.

The cause of this fight was McCormick’s questionable hit on Penguins forward Brandon Sutter earlier, and when these two veteran enforcers met up, they fought for a good 40+ seconds.
Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma took exception to the hit, which he thought was high. “I don’t think he had the puck,” he told Josh Yole of Tribune-Review.
Gotta appreciate the gentlemanly McCormick...
On the surface, Tyler Kennedy is the prototypical Dan Bylsma forward.
Good speed. Decent forechecker. Decent defensive forward. Not a European (oops).
But after a disappointing '11-'12 season with 11 goals (in 60 games), Kennedy has arguably been the worst performing forward in the Penguins lineup so far this season.
After 15 games, his one goal and two points...

It's officially Penguin season, everyone. Ron Cook has called out Evgeni Malkin!
Not going to lie here, we didn't even read much of the article.But we can guess what was said. From what we did see, Cook, because he knows nothing about hockey fails to mention that Malkin is 5th in the league in assists, and 11th overall...
You still have time to throw your hat! Pascal Dupuis’s 2nd career hat trick wins game for Penguins 4-3 over Buffalo. Penguins are now in 1st place.

Last week, Pens GM Ray Shero was reportedly in attendance for the Colorado Avalanche/Minnesota Wild game. His interest in what is otherwise seen as an uninteresting game for the Pittsburgh Penguins, is purely a sign of scouting for a possible trade.The Penguins are rumored to be interested in Devin Setoguchi, as reported by Rob Rossi a few weeks ago, as well as Matt Cullen. Setoguchi...
The Pens have unveiled a new Fan Loyalty Program. Read about it here. On the surface, there is nothing bad about this move by the Penguins. Rewarding fan loyalty with some free swag? It's a great gesture. The Pens made some moves during the first four home games of the season, too, with stuff like free concessions and discounted merchandise at the PensGear store, so they'...
During the celebration of Hockey Day In America, it’s only fitting that the Buffalo Sabres American goalie Ryan Miller delivered this absolute gem. Tied 3-3 late in the 3rd period, Pittsburgh Penguins forward James Neal somehow got wide open in the Sabres zone. Sidney Crosby hit Neal with a perfect pass, and Ryan Miller miraculously came across the crease and snagged it out...
With the country celebrating "Hockey Day in America" it was only fitting than an American scored the game-winning goal; even if the losing goaltender was from the United States as well. Paul Martin scored his second goal of the year with 2:04 remaining in the third period to lift the Penguins over the Sabres, 4-3. The Penguins took a 1-0 lead just 35 seconds into the opening...
1. Whatâs wrong with Evgeni Malkin, who has one even-strength goal?
2. Should the Pens send Beau Bennett, playing on the third line, back to Wilkes-Barre?
3. Who do you like better on the point for power plays, Kris Letang or Paul Martin? Why?
4. Can you name the Pensâ top three forward prospects after Bennett?
5. Are you concerned with the...
Holly Murray’s NHL Power Rankings The elite teams are beginning to separate themselves from the pretenders as Chicago continues to impress. The Pittsburgh Penguins are waddling their way back to the top while the Sharks are migrating South. It’s a crowded mess in the middle of the league and for some reason there’s about four [...]

If Paul Martin hadn't erased two years of disappointing play with his spectactular start to this season, a game-winning goal with under 3 minutes to play would've done the trick, too. Man, that is ******* huge. It's reminiscent of the big moments Sergei Gonchar used to provide.
But Martin wasn't the only hero on Hockey Day in America. Look no further...
