Found May 30, 2013 on Days of Y'Orr:
As we wait in anticipation for the Eastern Conference Finals to start, we're "treated" to a history lession of these two teams by reporters, commentators, and the unwashed masses on social media.  Granted, there is quite a bit of history there, both old and recent.  Only problem is, it's already been shoved in our faces so much that the only way to deal with it is to drink ourselves into sweet lovely oblivion. Then we have all the talk about the star players that no doubt NBC is going to verbally jerk off game after game.  We'll hear about the effectivness of the Merlot line, how dangerous the Penguin's power play is, Jagr's legacy in Pittsburgh, Krejci's playoff swagger, and Sidney Crosby's stupid pouty lips. Fear not readers, after the jump we bring you the...   1.  Any time a reporter or commentator swoons over a star player-- 1 drink 2.  If the Iginla trade deadline controversy is mentioned-- 1 drink 3.  If the...

Alright, So Maybe Sidney Crosby Is Kind Of Tough

Sidney Crosby is sometimes accused of whining, diving, and tampering with officials being given the benefit of the doubt by NHL officials. The fact of the matter is the 25-year-old Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia native is the NHL’s most prized asset and he gets treated as such. If he uses that to his advantage it frustrates the heck out of opposing fan bases, but it gets him and the...

Crosby’s smile on display in the Eastern Conference Final, and it ain’t pretty

The Globe and Mail's James Mirtle reports that Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, who will face the Boston Bruins without protection for his still-healing broken jaw, suffered an absolutely brutally vicious injury when he blocked Brooks Orpik's shot with his teeth, and he's going to face much more off-season dental work to restore his smile: Roughly 10 of...

The Sidney Crosby Flopping Supercut

Earlier this week we brought you over three minutes of LeBron James flopping, and today we have the Sidney Crosby flop compilation. I think I have to give the award for most graceful flopper to Sidney, however LeBron has had a few which are Emmy worthy. It is hard to deny that you don’t flop when videos like this exist.

Two-Headed Monster is Too Much For Teams by @MadChad412

The Pittsburgh Penguins are rolling through the 2012-2013 NHL playoffs by skill and scoring a lot of goals. Mainly, the Pens are thriving thanks to their two superstars, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, also known as the "Two-headed monster".  Cliche as this post is, bear with me, as I show just how truly special these two guys are, and how the Pittsburgh Penguins entire...

The Impressive Final Four

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail, Boston and Chicago have the added cachet of being Original Six teams, with loyal fans scattered around the hockey world. Pittsburgh has Sidney Crosby, the face of the league, which will come into greater focus, now that he’s been medically cleared to dispense with the mouth guard he’s worn for two rounds to protect his broken jaw...

Malkin confident heading into series with Bruins

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin, rested and ready to go, said he’s never felt better about his game going into a series. The Penguins and Boston Bruins faceoff in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals on Saturday night at the CONSOL Energy Center. Malkin

Matt Cooke Storyline Downplayed by Dan Bylsma, Sidney Crosby Who Praise Him for His Play

The Pittsburgh Penguins aren’t about to get too deep into anything having to do with Matt Cooke, unless it’s focusing on the positives the Pittsburgh forward has brought to the table. Cooke, at least for fans and media alike, is one of the main storylines entering the Eastern Conference final with the Bruins. It was Cooke, of course, who took out Marc Savard in 2010 with a nasty...

Hockey Porn or The Slot, The Stick and The Box. by @ChicksDigHockey

Hockey has a language all its own. During the Stanley Cup playoffs we’ll see Neal be a sniper, Dupuis hit a slapper and Sidney Crosby will, at least once, go top shelf where Momma keeps the dirty magazines!Did she say dirty magazines? Does she mean porn? Yes. If you watch enough hockey you’ll realize it’s riddled with pornographic innuendo. Some miss it while others are keenly...

Bruins-Penguins: This Soup Does The Pens Players Bodies Good (PHOTO)

Yep I can envision Penguins superstars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin sipping on a big bowl of this soup prior to Game One versus the Bruins. Not sure if this does your body good or not. Bruins fans will stick with this Soup-y. Thank you very much…

Dan Spiegel: MacKinnon Muddies The Draft Waters For The Panthers

After Nathan MacKinnon's epic performance in the Memorial Cup Tournament, he has risen to the #1 prospect in many NHL Draft circles. After months of sagging behind defensive phenom Seth Jones and fellow teammate Jonathan Drouin, MacKinnon has re-emerged as a sure fire starter in the NHL next year. He is even being compared to being the next Sidney Crosby(not sure about that...

Sizing up the Final Four Captains

By Ken Will for The PensNation Twitter: PensNation_Ken  It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that leadership is a key element of any team that wants to have playoff success. That usually starts from the captain and filters through the rest of the organization. Whenever the captain fizzes out, the ripple effect is felt by everybody else. Just look at the Chicago Blackhawks...

Watch: Top prospects primed for draft

(Canadian Press/Getty Images) The Nashville Predators will be selecting fourth overall in the 2013 NHL Draft. Their pick will all depend on who the top three players select on draft day. Nashville could draft Seth Jones, Nathan MacKinnon, Jonathan Drouin, Aleksander Barkov or Elias Lindholm. We can only find out on June 30. Despite losing the Memorial Cup, Seth...

NHL Playoff Observations -- Round Three Begins

Just a few things that caught my eye: I'm not sure I've seen Sidney Crosby as angry as he was at the end of the second period. He let Tuukka Rask get under his skin and then popped Rask in the chest (twice). And he chirped Zdeno Chara who had his number all night long (hint: he's too big for you Sid). He let them get him off his game. Why is Corey Crawford...
