Can The Penguins’ Match The Ducks’ Physical Play?
While it is just one game, last night the San Jose Sharks essentially turned the Penguins into chum by playing a physical, aggressive and playoff-style type of game. San Jose outshot Pittsburgh 34-12 over the final two periods by creating more space for themselves and wearing down the Penguins...
It isn’t often that Sidney Crosby gets called out for pretty much anything he does on the ice — save for the sizable contingent of Sid the Kid haters, who cannot stand anything the Pittsburgh Penguins superstar does — but the weaksauce effort he put into playing defense on Patrick Marleau’s shorthanded goal in Pittsburgh’s […]The post Poor effort earns Sidney Crosby...
Sidney Crosby was a shocking -5 against the Sharks on Thursday night. Included in his awful night was a terrible giveaway to Patrick Marleau on a Penguins powerplay that resulted in a shorthanded goal.
It is only fair he gets the same treatment as Alexander Ovechkin.

I know it's a little old. I just saw this and had to share it. Teemu Selanne called Crosby out for being a diver.

Penguins general manager Ray Shero has been pursuing Kesler since January and would like to make a deal before the NHL Trade Deadline at 3 p.m. Wednesday. A proposed deal would send Kesler to the Penguins in exchange for center Brandon Sutter, two 2014...
Sidney Crosby's second Olympic experience was last dramatic and just as rewarding.
Crosby returned from Sochi, Russia, with his second Olympic gold medal, this one as the captain of the Canadian team. Leading a national team certainly brings a different sense of responsibility, but the same expectation.

When Canadian superstar Sidney Crosby pounced on a turnover and steamrolled toward Swedish goalie Henrik Lundqvist in the second period, there was little doubt that Crosby was going to put it away.
He deked Lundqvist and shoveled it in on his backhand for a 2-0 lead, a finish that was perfectly captured in these two photographs by Associated Press photographers Julio Cortez and...

Another Winter Olympics has begun, along with all the familiar traditions that accompany the games: an opening ceremony honoring the delegations of the participating nations, medal ceremonies honoring the top 3 finishers with the Gold Medal winners' national anthems playing, and Canadians (among others) complaining about Sidney Crosby. More specifically, the difficulty that...
