“Get me somebody, Anybody”
“A one month subscription to the jelly of the month club?”
The other 29 teams around the NHL can give up now. The Pittsburgh Penguins have won the Holiday season with their incredible Christmas Vacation parody. Just wait for Evgeni Malkin’s contribution.
Pittsburgh Penguins holiday video. It’s the gift that keeps on giving throughout the entire year.

Marc-Andre Fleury didn’t have the Mumps. But he ended up making the AVs sicks.
Fleury and Colorado goaltender Calvin Pickard, who sounds like the name of a marginal villian in a Jean Claude Van Damme movie, battled to a 0-0 tie in regulation. In a game that featured a ton of action for a scoreless affair, the Penguins mostly dominated. But Pickard played out of his mind, and kept...

PITTSBURGH BOBBLEHEAD THEATRE – EP. 3
Marc Andre Fleury missed practice and tested negative for the mumps. What do these precautions look like? Pittsburgh Bobblehead Theatre has an idea.
It wasn’t exactly a trending topic when the Penguins signed Blake Comeau to a one-year contract on the first day of free agency this past July. Comeau, who had only netted 11 goals in parts of the last two seasons, was at best seen as a guy who would primarily be filling a role in the bottom-six. His name not being Tanner Glass or Deryk Engelland was perhaps his best...
The NHL sent out a league-wide memo Tuesday on information about curtailing mumps and preventing further transmission, reports ESPN.com.
From the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention website: “Mumps is a contagious disease that is caused by the mumps virus. Mumps typically starts with a few days of fever, headache...

With the mumps sweeping across the dressing room of the Pittsburgh Penguins, it’s fair that we’re all asking questions about the team’s medical staff and their policies for dealing with the virus:
Why weren’t the Penguins more proactive when they knew this is an issue in the National Hockey League?
I’ve seen this one a lot. It is certainly...
The Canucks just finished up owning the Pittsburgh Penguins which we all know now was because of the mumps. It didn’t take long before games against the Leafs, Sens and Canadiens gave Canucks nation a scare, not a mumps scare, but we got a bit worried. The line blender saw its debut on the Eastern […]

Toronto Maple Leafs have traded defenseman player 1 to the Pittsburgh Penguins for player 2
Blake Comeau has been playing out of his mind lately. Injuries and illnesses have bought him precious ice time and he has not disappointed. Being on a line with Evgeni Malkin agrees with Comeau. He potted his ninth goal just 48 seconds into Pittsburgh's 3-1 win over the Flames on Friday. On Saturday, in a game that was more scrappy than skilled, he netted one past Bobrovsky to tie...
Beau Bennett may have the Mumps.
And this could turn even worse, because Bennett made a trip to Pittsburgh’s Children Hospital last week as a part of the Penguins annual charity.
#BREAKING Pens say Beau Bennett might have mumps. He visited kids at Children's Hospital last week. Those kids are now being tested.

What a nightmare.
Longtime goalie Tomas Vokoun has decided to retire, according to the Czech publication Sport.
Vokoun, 38, most recently played for the Pittsburgh Penguins during the 2012-13 season, when he went 13-4 with a 2.45 goals-against average and a 91.9 save percentage in 20 games. He was limited to two games with the Penguins' AHL affiliate last season because of blood clots in his pelvis...
When Sidney Crosby was recently interviewed by the media, no one could take their eyes off the right side of his face. Crosby’s puffy cheek seemed to be a pretty clear indicator that he had the mumps, but the team was cautious in saying why they were resting the star forward this weekend. The Penguins initially claimed there was no indication that Crosby had mumps.
Sidney Crosby is the latest NHL player to be diagnosed with the mumps.
TSN’s Bob McKenzie first reported Crosby’s diagnosis Sunday morning. The team confirmed the news in a news release shortly thereafter.
Crosby will be monitored daily, and specialists indicated he should be through the infectious period by Monday, the team said in the statement. He’ll...

Stan Savran is going to want this one back. During the first intermission between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Columbus Blue Jackets, Savran was trying to explain how the Penguins were being completely overwhelmed by the Blue Jackets. The analogy he went with was an uncomfortable comparison to the protests over the Eric Garner “I Can’t Breathe” death in New York.
That’s Stan Savran of ROOT Sports with one horrible swing and a miss during the first intermission of Saturday night’s Penguins-Blue Jackets game. While talking about the Penguins’ ineffectiveness during the opening period, Savran attempted to make a joke (or something) about the throng of athletes who have shown support for Eric Garner by wearing

A serious mumps outbreak has affected several players on various teams across the NHL this season. Sidney Crosby claims he is not one of them. Yet, for some reason, the entire right side of Crosby’s face is swollen. We’re not calling him a liar, but go ahead and google “mumps” and see what you find....Read More
The Pittsburgh Penguins have gotten some of their best play lately from the unlikely pairing of Evgeni Malkin and Brandon Sutter. The two have been so good together that Ryan Wilson, one of the absolute “must read” Penguins writers out there, proposed that the team may be best served to leave the two together, at […]

Rookie defenseman Derrick Pouliot has been confirming why he remains the top player in the Pittsburgh Penguins prospect pool. Pouliot was selected in the 2012 draft in the 1st round, 8th overall by the Penguins. In his last season with the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League, he impressively posted 70 points in 58 games.
Pouliot joined the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins...
