BRANDON SUTTER NEWS

RECAP: Game 75. Pens get some breathing room with a big win.

Malkin and Hornqvist were making their big return. The Pens were gonna have healthy forwards. Nope. Nice try. David Perron was a late scratch with a mysterious illness. And Kris Letang may be out for a while after getting rocked by Shane Doan. The Pens were going into this weekend kind of on shaky ground. Everyone is afraid to admit it, but the Pens were a couple losses away this...

Coyotes-Penguins Preview

The Pittsburgh Penguins are squandering a chance to improve their playoff positioning, bogged down by a sputtering offense. Evgeni Malkin's potential return could help them turn things around. Malkin hopes to be back on the ice Saturday when Pittsburgh hosts the lowly Arizona Coyotes. The Penguins (40-23-11) are 1-5-1 in their last seven games and were overrun in a 5-2 loss at Carolina...

GIF: Darren Helm spears Mike Smith in the junk

We’ve mocked Mike Smith a lot over the last few weeks. First, he jumped over a shot and allowed a bizarre goal. Next, he shot the puck off of Brandon Sutter and into his own net. What could possibly follow up those two incidents? How about a spear in the junk from Darren Helm? Smith has a reputation for diving, but it looks like Helm makes decent contact.

RECAP: Game 69. LOL. Pens get blitzed 5-1.

Some guy got taken out on a stretcher at Mario’s bar in the South Side this weekend because he drank too much during the St. Patrick’s Day celebration in Pittsburgh. He’s about the only other person who had a worse weekend than the Penguins. Sidney Crosby returned from his mysterious injury but didn’t do much. The rest of the Penguins didn’t really look interesting in...

Penguins Update: Sutter on the Rise

It’s been an up-and-down for the Penguins Brandon Sutter, to say the least. A streaky scorer by nature, the 26-year-old struggled mightily through the middle part of the season following a solid start. During a 31-game stretch from November 22 through early February, the Huntington, New York native was a minus-11 with a paltry four goals. A virtual revolving door of linemates didn’t...

What The Hell Happened: Penguins hang on, win 4-3 and avoid season sweep by Caps

It was only a matter of time before the real Braden Holtby showed up. The Penguins lit Holtby up for four goals on 26 shots, which is huge, being that they had only scored one goal in their previous 91 shots against him. More importantly, the Penguins reminded not only the Capitals, but maybe even themselves that they actually can play against the Metro division big boys. Also,...

Line Production: Even Strength last 10 games is sad.

Via Dobber’s. This is line production at even strength for the last 10 games: 1. Where would the Penguins be without David Perron? 2. Remember that faction of the fanbase that didn’t like the Brandon Sutter contract? We get it now. 3.  Really not enjoying the Mark Arcobello era.
