RECAP: GAME 29. Welcome back, Columbus.

The Pens have a new rival. It was born in the playoffs last season thanks to the new alignment and playoff structure, and it’s exactly what the system is designed to breed. It is pretty much impossible to get up for every single game in an 82-game season, so these games born in bad blood are what it’s all about. This turned out to be a great game. And that was with both teams...

This Week in Flyers History: Week ending December 7

On December 2, 1963, 51 years ago, twin boys were born in Viking, Alberta Canada. This would normally not strike anyone as a big deal or very newsworthy. However, with a hockey lineage attributed to the last name of Sutter, it was the arrival of two more boys to add into the pipeline headed to the NHL. Rich and Ron - the youngest of six boys - would later don the orange and black...

Penguins vs. Canadiens Recap by @pghgirl15222

First Period: Overall the Penguins started strong. They matched the physical play of the Canadiens during the first period and overall they were flying on the ice. Under Johnston they are playing with a confidence that has not been seen since the 2009 Cup run.  Bennett intercepted a bad pass to make it 1-0 Penguins. If he can stay healthy it’ll mean huge things for the Penguins...

Key Observations Heading Into Game 9 Between the Penguins and Kings

By: Casey Johnston (@DarthHockey) Over the past summer a major topic of conversation for the Penguins was the bottom-six forward corps.  Jim Rutherford did what he could do to repair the group by retaining Marcel Goc and Brandon Sutter and bringing in Nick Spaling, Blake Comeau, and Steve Downie.  This was a welcome relief for a team that spent the last two seasons in the bottom...
