This Is Not Highlander. There Can Be More Than One
I’ve noticed a disturbing trend among a sub-group of Penguins fans to take sides in this imaginary rivalry between Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. This mostly media-driven rivalry is being hashed out on the battlefields of social media. For some of you, there can be only one superstar Penguin...

BOSTON — Shutting down two of the top-five forwards in the NHL always is a difficult challenge, but it’s even tougher when key defensive players are out of the lineup.
The Bruins were without No. 1 defenseman Zdeno Chara, as well as quality defensive forwards David Krejci and Chris Kelly in Monday night’s 3-2 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins because of injuries. It...
Sidney Crosby showed why he’s one of the best players in the world Monday night when he took advantage of a Boston Bruins line change and cashed in for his ninth goal of the season.
The Bruins brought on their fourth line of Jordan Caron, David Pastrnak and Alex Khokhlachev, but the Penguins kept big guns Patric Hornqvist and Sidney Crosby on the ice so the lines would be mismatched...
This game was up and down, back and forth. All that matters is this.

Marc-Andre Fleury with his 300th career win. Always nice to see a win in Boston.
Sidney Crosby is known for a lot of things in the hockey world.
The Pittsburgh Penguins superstar is known for his incredible talent, unmatched vision on the ice and impressive leadership. One thing he’s not known for, however, is what he can do when his gloves come off.

That said, a lot of fans […]

Halloween is always a good time to catch your favorite athletes dressed as semi-boring costumes, unless they drift into the racist end of the pool (looking at you, Raffi Torres). Or if you’re Sidney Crosby, you use your costume to possibly troll your arch enemy. Check out the picture below, from the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Halloween party this weekend:
