Found June 01, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
I will be watching to see if Chicago will adjust to the constant hitting they are about to receive from the LA Kings and will Tomas Vokoun still be a steady influence for the Pittsbugh Penguins. Feel free to discuss both games in the comments below.

No Better Time To Start Fleury Than Now

from Scott Burnside of ESPN, If now is not the time for Marc-Andre Fleury, then when? Or more to the point, if it is not time now for the return of the longtime Penguins starter and former number one overall draft pick, then the answer "never".... ... there remains a prevailing feeling at least from outside the Penguins dressing room that if the star-studded...

Malkin, Bergeron fight at end of period

At the end of the second period of Game 1 between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins, there was some pushing and shoving between the two teams.  Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin and Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron took things to the next level and actually dropped the gloves in this brief tilt.  It wasn’t much of a fight, but it set the tone that these two teams are...

Fitting Penguins Humor; Sidney Crosby crying about the officiating already

Haha this is funny @jroadsreal @goon48 twitter.com/bergcar5/statu… — gretchen berg (@bergcar5) June 2, 2013 Someone put this on twitter last night, I know it's old but it fits with the current Pittsburgh Penguins, especially with Sidney Crosby whining about the officiating after last night's game. Apparently, Sid bad mustache and all didn't watch the game between...

Jack Edwards Says Bruins Are Much Better Team Than During Regular Season, Poised to Surprise Penguins (Audio)

The Penguins owned the Bruins during the regular season. But does that mean anything for the Eastern Conference final? Not according to Jack Edwards, who says the Bruins are a much, much better team than they were during the year’s first 48 games. Edwards phoned in for a Friday morning interview with WAAF to discuss the impending playoff series, and noted that Boston is playing...

Matt Cooke Solidifies Himself as Pittsburgh’s Biggest Villain As Tempers Flare Between Bruins, Penguins (Video)

Jarome Iginla, you’re off the hook. While Bruins fans might have entered the Eastern Conference finals with an axe to grind regarding Iginla’s no-trade drama at this year’s deadline, Matt Cooke has firmly moved atop any list of most-hated opposing players. Already despised for his career-ending hit on Marc Savard, Cooke was up to no good once again in Game 1. His check from...

Bruins/Penguins Game 1:  Not a Shocking Result

Pretty damn entertaining hockey game, I must say. The Penguins 3-0 loss to the Bruins in Game One of the Eastern Conference Finals wasn't due to their opponent outhustling and/or outworking them. It was just a good old-fashioned, hard-fought game that saw the Bruins capitalize on their chances, while the Penguins simply could not do the same. Sure, you can nit-pick numerous...

Matt Cooke and Brad Marchand deliver questionable hits in Game 1

Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins got off to a bumpy start early in the second period.  Penguins forward Matt Cooke delivered this crushing hit to Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid, hitting him right in the numbers.  Cooke was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for the hit. Later in the period, Brad Marchand hit...

Stanley Cup Playoffs: Eastern Conference Final: Penguins vs. Bruins – Game 1

After what seemed like an eternity but in reality was only 8 days, the Penguins returned to the ice of the Consol Energy Center to take on the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference Final. Unfortunately, for Penguins fans, the night didn’t go as planned as the Bruins took game one 3 to 0. If nothing, the game proved to show that this series is going to be a long one.   The Penguins...

GIF: Side by side look at Cooke and Marchand's hits.

One of these hits is worth a five minute major and game misconduct, and the other is worth only two minutes: What's the difference? It appears the fact that McQuaid laid on the ice and pretended he was hurt, while James Neal got up. No absolving Matt Cooke here, but that hit is not a five-minute major. No word if Cooke will face suspension.

Penguins Puke Matt Cooke boards Boston Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid

What a joke they gave this clown Pittsburgh Penguins forward Matt Cooke the Masterton Trophy. This guy has been suspended at least 31 games by the NHL for his acts of transgression. I think this hit deserves a game suspension for the NHL's department of Players safety. I actually think that Krug did his teammate a favor by slowing down Cooke, or this would have been even uglier...

CBC's "Sid-Cam" is one of the craziest things you'll ever see

Currently, during Game One of the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins, on CBC.ca, a "Sid-Cam" is being streamed. Basically, for the entire game, there is a camera on Sidney Crosby. Even when he's on the bench and during commercial breaks. Poor Crosby. Has no privacy.The only thing missing is if they followed the Penguins captain into the dressing room during period...

A Team of Fans @bigeagle12

I’ve never done anything of this sort before, but I guess what better time than now? The Penguins are being forced into a hiatus in excess of a week due to a NKOTB concert (I know, right?) which results in me having some free time. I have read multiple articles over the past several months that have argued whether or not the fans are truly a part of the team or not. Sure, they...

Matt Bartkowski Says It Will Be ‘Awesome’ to Play Against Hometown Penguins, Says Bruins Are ‘There to Win’

WILMINGTON, Mass. — The smile spread across Matt Bartkowski‘s face even before the question was finished. How will it feel to play against his hometown Penguins, the team he rooted for as a youngster? “I can’t believe how many times I’ve been asked that,” the Bruins rookie defenseman said with a laugh. “It’s going to be awesome.” Especially if Boston upsets Pittsburgh...

Tracking the Playoffs: Penguins vs. Bruins Game 1

If you're wondering why I did not have any scoring chances posted from the last round, it's a long story. I'll just say that I've had a limited amount of spare time the last few weeks and was not able to post any analysis of the second round. Despite that minor setback, I should be back in full force for the Conference Finals and will provide a closer look at the...
