Outrage at Sidney Crosby missing the All-Star game is ordinary, predictable.

LOL knew this was coming. [ Puck Daddy ] To put it in high-school terms: The other absences had doctor’s notes. This one feels like Sid took some vegetable soup, poured it into the toilet and told his parents he had the stomach flu. (I know this works. I tried it, to great effect.) Yea, sorry. Not one **** given here that Crosby is not at the All-Star game. A sad narrative in hockey...

What the Hell Happened: Valiant effort, but Pens fall in a shootout

With things being what they are, it is hard to find a ton of faults in this game. The Penguins got bad news before the game with both Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin out. After a slow start, the Penguins were able to push back with goals from the hapless Zac Sill, and Steve Downie. By the third period it was actually a semi-entertaining game with both teams trading chances. David Perron...

Penguins Search for Right Mix on D

It’s a no-brainer, right? If you want to be a puck-possession team, you need defensemen who can move the puck. On that count our Penguins gets high marks. Kris Letang, Christian Ehrhoff, Paul Martin, and Simon Despres handle the puck with equal parts ability and aplomb. There’s a flip side to loading up with so much skill. Friday night’s 6-3 loss to the Islanders was a prime...

Video: Bobby Farnham was mic’d up in the penalty box

Few things are quite as entertaining in hockey as when a player is mic’d up during a game. The Penguins placed a mic on Bobby Farnham and it delivered a memorable moment with Colorado’s Cody McLeod. After the two dropped the mitts, McLeod shouted a few words of advice to Farnham. Bobby Farnham is mic'd in the penalty box. You'll probably want to see this.
