The Farm Club:
Late in the evening December 16th, news broke from an interview that Tomas Vokoun completed with a Czech-based newspaper about his future in the NHL.
To say the least, the sound bites seem to spell the end of Vokoun’s stellar, if not contentious, run in the NHL. Despite that, the Penguins do not seem to find themselves in a goaltending quagmire that many predicted when news of Vokoun’s blood clotting issue first came to light.
For many, Vokoun will go down as a good goalie who couldn’t quite break through into the elite ranks. Those who believe that are not the people of Pittsburgh and fans of the Penguins. Although his time in Pittsburgh has been brief you don’t need to convince anyone who watched him play here that Vokoun was a great calming influence for the team, a presence in the locker room, and perhaps the central cog in the team’s push into the Eastern Conference Finals last year.Those intangibles are not going to be replaced on this team anytime soon. But now is not really ...

Credit: Sean Kilpatrick/The Canadian Press Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis has been one of Pittsburgh’s most durable players the past two seasons. He played in every single regular season game during those years. Unfortunately, that will not happen again in 2013-14. The team announced today that Dupuis will be out indefinitely after injuring his knee on Monday night in Ottawa against...

The Pittsburgh Penguins go blown out on Monday night. They're hoping the same isn't true about Pascal Dupuis' knee.The veteran left winger took some friendly fire early in the match when Ottawa Senators' defenseman Marc Methot sent Penguins' center Sidney Crosby flying with a huge hip check on open ice, spinning into Dupuis and taking him out at the knees...
Ray Shero may be one of the best General Managers the NHL has seen in the last several years, drafting well, trading better and somehow getting the best player in the world to sign under his worth for the rest of his career (Crosby, $8.7 mil per year till 2021). Last season he pulled Jerome Iginla from a surefire deal with the Bruins and didn’t deal a single roster player as he...
Pascal Dupuis, the Penguins’ first-line right winger, has a severe knee injury and could miss the rest of the regular season.
Coach Dan Bylsma updated Dupuis’ condition after the team’s game-day skate at PNC Arena.
He said Dupuis “will be going for ACL knee surgery in a couple of weeks and is out indefinitely. No timetable, but likely that (he) might be out for the remainder...
Sure, those 31 saves Marc-Andre Fleury made were important.
The Penguins' 4-3 overtime victory Friday night against Carolina at PNC Arena simply would not have been possible without them.
But Fleury's biggest contribution might have been an uncredited assist he earned with a split-second decision in the first minute of the extra period, for it allowed teammate James Neal...

Looks like Bobby Mac knows it isn't good.
I imagine PIT will update specifics of Pascal Dupuis' LBI soon but I'm hearing it's not good at all. Pens plagued by injury this season.

Throughout the 2013-2014 NHL season, I’ll be posting player features each Friday. This week, we’re going to take a look at Matt Niskanen.
It’s been quite a rough season when it comes to the injury-prone Pittsburgh Penguins. This has been a stressful time period for both players and fans. This...
Pascal Dupuis is going to have ACL surgery and he may miss the rest of the season.
From the Penguins:
Penguins winger Pascal Dupuis will undergo ACL surgery for his knee and could miss the rest of the season.
Dupuis, 34, suffered the ACL injury Monday night in Ottawa after Sidney Crosby fell into his knee following a hip check from Senators defenseman Marc Methot.
Here’s the thing with the Penguins right now. They have six of the same player: Adams, Harry Z, Vitale, Glass, Conner, and Kobasew. While it isn't the greatest thing to watch, you know what you are getting. They limit the mistakes, they aren't horribly unreliable, and they can hang with low-end teams like the Canes. Those six players give...

When Pascal Dupuis’ knee buckled in a multi-player collision during Pittsburgh’s 5-0 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Monday night, the Penguins’ immediate fear was to hear the most dreaded three letters in most athlete’s lexicon when it comes to lower body injuries : ACL.
Today, as the Penguins announced Dupuis’ need to undergo ACL surgery,...
The Pittsburgh Penguins were able to fend off the Carolina Hurricanes and leave Raleigh with a 4-3 overtime victory. The Hurricanes held the territorial advantage for most of the night but were unable to beat Fleury enough times for the win.

Sidney Crosby had his 10 game point streak snapped against the Ottawa Senators in the blowout loss prior to the Christmas break. More importantly he lost a liberate. Crosby has been the only center on the roster to play with the same guys all season on what us arguably the best line in hockey. That…
