Penguins Style Makes Fun Hockey

If you’re Mike Sullivan — or any member of the Penguins’ brass — you may be ready to pull your hair out right now. If you’re a spectator of this sport, though, this just might be the most entertaining hockey you’ve watched since the early-to-mid-90’s.

Sid's Surge: Crosby on a goal-scoring tear for Penguins

PITTSBURGH (AP) Sidney Crosby can't seem to find the right word for what's happening. If the Pittsburgh Penguins captain is being honest, he is not really interested in finding one. He would rather just enjoy a hot streak that is bordering on absurd even by his remarkably high standards. The two-time MVP's 17 goals lead the NHL just over a quarter of the way into the season, even...

WATCH: Evgeni Malkin hits own goalie in the face with his stick

Penguins goalie Matt Murray might want to bail a little quicker when his teammates are fighting past the whistle.

Oshie after Oshie gently crashed the net. After Murray’s helmet came off, Malkin...
