5 Penguin Points to Ponder by @ChicksDigHockey

Sixteen games into an 82 game season is hardly time for reflection. It is, however, enough time to notice some things that spark thought and make you go Hmmmm.......  In August Coach Johnston said he felt they (Pens) needed to “lessen the load” on Sidney Crosby. He said that even though Crosby is the team’s captain, other players needed to take some of the load...

Gameday 15: Pittsburgh Penguins at Toronto Maple Leafs

Pittsburgh Penguins (10-3-1) at Toronto Maple Leafs (9-5-2) 7:30 – ROOT Sports Air Canada Centre – Toronto, Ontario The last four or five gameday posts have basically been nothing but a bunch of stats driving home the point of how well the Penguins had been playing.  Their power play was lights out.  The PK stopped Ebola.  Crosby and Malkin were moving mountains.  They...

Why Jonathan Toews is better than Sidney Crosby

Ladies and gentlemen of the Internet jury, my opponent will have you believe that Sidney Crosby is the gold standard of professional hockey on this planet. Two gold medals, two Hart Trophies, and various other individuals awards has made Mr. Crosby the most decorated player in the post-lockout era. However, all the accolades and fancy […] The post Why Jonathan Toews is better than...

Thoughts: Game 14 – Pens lose 5-0 to Rangers in lackluster effort

By:  Meesh Shanmugam Rangers 5  Pens 0 Record: 10-3-1 Goals None Click here to read the goal assessments Penalties Crosby (tripping) – Stupid (tries to tie up Zuccarello in the defensive zone and jams his stick into Zuccarello’s skates, taking him down) Hornqvist (roughing) – Stupid (puts an extra shove on Brassard in front of the ref after already knocking him down to...

Hater’s gonna hate: Sidney Crosby is the best player in the world and it’s not even close

Sidney Crosby is a polarizing figure. There, I got the obvious out of the way. He’s generally hated by most of the non-Penguins fan base because of his embellishments, his constant yapping to the referees and the way he sometimes lets the chippy play get the best of him. That said, a lot of fans […] The post Hater’s gonna hate: Sidney Crosby is the best player in the world...

Sidney Crosby Trolls Flyers Fans With ‘Rocky’ Halloween Costume (Photo)

All Hallows’ Eve  is still more than a week away, but the Pittsburgh Penguins have kicked off the festivities early. Evgeni Malkin uploaded photos from the annual Penguins’ Halloween party Sunday night. In case Philadelphia Flyers fans didn’t have enough reasons to hate him, Sidney Crosby decided to go as the city’s beloved character, Rocky Balboa. Perhaps Crosby was trying...

Sidney Crosby dressed as Rocky Balboa for Halloween

Sidney Crosby, arguably the best hockey player in the world, plays for the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins and their fans don’t like the Philadelphia Flyers, and the feeling is quite mutual. Flyers fans have a particularly strong hatred for Crosby. With that in mind, do you think Sid the Kid dressing as Rocky Balboa for...Read More

Did Sidney Crosby troll Flyers fans with Halloween costume?

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: Loading Halloween in advance...

Sidney Crosby is happy (sort of) to have Steve Downie on the team

Hey, remember when Sidney Crosby hated Steve Downie? We certainly do. Especially when Downie was playing for the Tampa Bay Lightning, wrapping his leg around Crosby’s leg to trip him to the ice, leaving the Pittsburgh Penguins captain writing in pain (whether that was legit pain or not is another discussion). So it’s a little bit interesting to see Downie teaming up with Crosby...

Ottawa Police: Reports of Sidney Crosby's arrest a 'blatant lie'

There appeared to be some big NHL news in the wee hours of Wednesday morning. The Ottawa Sun reported very early Wednesday that Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby was arrested in Ottawa for a driving-related incident. However, that report appears to be untrue, or at the very least, unfounded. The story on the Sun’s website and on the London Free Press website have both...
