Found June 05, 2013 on Days of Y'Orr:
After being embarassed on home ice for two straight games the Pittsburgh Penguins looked to their fearless leader Dan Bylsma for a new offensive and defensive strategy. Well, they got one. The board says it all. instagram.com/p/aJ8MAbupPG/ — Pittsburgh Penguins (@penguins) June 4, 2013 Trolololol Yup. The Penguins worked on Hangman. Hangman.   We didn't realize Bylsma was taking coaching advice from Kris Letang. Speaking of Uncle Jesse, he had an amusing quote yesterday: Like we saw in the game, they don’t really forecheck us, they just wait for us to make mistakes, and we actually gave them what they got, and we have to be better with the puck, without the puck, defensively, in all areas of the game. Right. The Bruins don't forecheck And the Red Wedding wasn't really red. You can find more amusing Kris Letang quotes on twitter via the hashtag #KrisLetangQuotes. Even Pens fans jumped on board the fun. S/T to @MikeDarnay for ...

Bruins-Penguins: B’s Fans Heckle & Harass The Ass Named Matt Cooke (VIDEO)

Pens goon Matt Cooke got an earful from Bruins fans in the penalty box in Game Three. And it was glorious. No one deserves taunting and ball busting more than this “Re-Born” tool bag.  Every Bruins fan must of got out of their seats and off their couches when Looch threw that puke around in the corner. Of course, Cooke went in to the fetal position praying Looch did not rearrange...

Kris Letang said the Bruins don't forecheck. Is he right?

Via PHT: Like we saw in the game, they don’t really forecheck us, they just wait for us to make mistakes, and we actually gave them what they got, and we have to be better with the puck, without the puck, defensively, in all areas of the game. Curious statement from Letang, and not really sure what he means. Hopefully a reporter asks him a follow up question next...

This Zdeno Chara/Sidney Crosby photoshop perfectly sums up the Bruins-Penguins series so far

Losing 3-0 at home to open the Eastern Conference Finals was bad enough, but getting thrashed 6-1 in Game 2 is downright ugly. Trailing in the series 2-0 and heading back to Boston doesn’t bode well for the Pittsburgh Penguins, and this brilliant photoshop job of Zdeno Chara hoisting Sidney Crosby over his head—via Reddit—is the literal representation of the series thus far...

Baby cries on Jet Blue flight, Pilot asks if its Sidney Crosby

Sidney Crosby has received a lot of accolades in his career. The player often called the best in the world, hasn't gotten all positive attention though.Much maligned for being a "whiner", Crosby's gotten made fun of plenty by hockey fans over the years. He's currently having a frustrating time with the Boston Bruins. His Pittsbugh Penguins have been outscored...

Let's All Panic by @Nick422

Why not?  The Penguins are down 2-0, fairly convincingly, to a very tough Boston Bruins team.  Things look really bleak.  Players are playing poorly.  What else is there to do?(Gene J. Puskar/AP)Let's all panic.Never mind that this is the time the Penguins lost back-to-back games at home since January.  Never mind that these are the only two wins the Bruins have against...

Preview: Pittsburgh Penguins at Boston Bruins – Game Three

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that Game Three is a monumental game for both the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Boston Bruins. The Penguins are down 0-2 in the Eastern Conference Finals heading into Game Three and are looking for any signs of life to get back on track tonight in Boston. Though he was yanked from Game Two after giving up three goals in the first period...

GARTH: Net Losses

The Pittsburgh Penguins better get their act together, and quick. Otherwise, they will find themselves cleaning out their lockers and heading prematurely to their summer cottages. Dan Bylsma can blame two things for his team's perpetual failures against the Boston Bruins in the ECF: 1). Atrocious goal tending 2). A turnstile Defense Tomas Vokoun has been as porous...

Penguins play hangman at practice before Game 3

Yes, seriously…that happened. Pens players showed up to the rink today with a game set up on one of the coach’s whiteboards, and the winning word wound up being “comeback.” The Penguins are seriously grasping for some motivation right now and are settling for hangman to do the job. Because it’s the cup? Personally, I like the below version better. via @MassholeSports

Ty Anderson: Bruins slice and dice Vokoun, Fleury

Shut out for the first time in well over a year in Game 1, and following a complete no-show from superstars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin among countless others, the Pittsburgh Penguins knew that their big guns simply had to show up if the club was to avoid going down for the second straight game at CONSOL Energy Center. But the showing from Crosby 28 seconds into tonight'...

Pittsburgh’s Big 3 Haven’t Been Good

from Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Crosby has been lousy. It's hard to say he ever has played this poorly in consecutive games. It's not just that he failed to get a point in either game. He lost his cool at the end of the second period in Game 1, going out of his way to harass Rask and then comically jawing with Boston giant Zdeno Chara, who could have squeezed...

Matt Cooke gets into it with Bruins fans while in penalty box

This video is exactly why CBC’s coverage of the NHL Playoffs is infinitely better than NBC’s.  CBC’s cameras managed to catch this exchange when Pittsburgh Penguins forward Matt Cooke went to the penalty box.  I would love to know what was said between the Bruins fans chirping at Cooke and what Cooke said back to them.  For those that don’t know, Boston Bruins fans hate...

Penguins Needed One More Goal

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, The Bruins’ second trip to the Stanley Cup Final in three seasons became a fait accompli at 12:13 a.m. Thursday, thanks to a Patrice Bergeron strike at 15:19 of double overtime that turned Pittsburgh’s best performance of the Eastern Conference finals into its worst nightmare. Amid the elation on Causeway Street, where 17...

Playoff Gameday: Eastern Conference Final - Game Three

Pittsburgh Penguins @ Boston Bruins Bruins lead series 2-0 NBCSN, CBC, RDS - 8:00 pm/et TD Garden - Boston, MA We've all spent days blaming various players, disecting different plays, cursing and speculating about which goaltender would be in net. Guess what? None of that really matters. The Pittsburgh Penguins as a team were terrible in game two. It was...

rubble

Last night was the best game the Penguins have played all series.  We believe that.  But there's nothing--absolutely nothing on this earth--like watching the best game your team plays all series and still having them sent to the brink.  Both goalies were fantastic, but Rask had to be more fantastic.  Rask stole the game.  53 saves on 54 shots is hardly a joke.  It's...

Marchand and Kunitz incident gif

s/t to Nicholas Scibetta. Okay, I have to admit that this was a bush league move, I admit. Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand was given a two minute minor penalty for kneeing and Pittsburgh Penguins forward Chris Kunitz was given a two minute minor for slashing.
