GAMEDAY 30: Pens head to Boston to face the Bruins and the absolute worst fans in hockey

Pittsburgh Penguins (15-11-3) at Boston Bruins (16-9-4) 8:00 PM EST – NBCSN TD Garden – Boston, Massachusetts The first game of the Mike Sullivan era didn’t go as well as we’d hoped, but there were some positives. Outside of trading Rob Scuderi mid-game to Chicago, which was incredible in and of itself, there were plenty of scoring chances and end-to-end rushes, a fight...

Penguins hope coaching change will jump start season

The Pittsburgh Penguins have not performed at the level they hoped, and the time has come to shake things up. While their record of 15-10-3 is very respectable, the Penguins are trying to be one of the best teams in the NHL, and their performance has not suggested that thus far. While several players could be considered a key reason for their lack of success, the Penguins’ organization...

Game 25 Recap: Pens lose a heartbreaker in the City of Jokes

What a bizarre game. Defensemen were scoring goals all over the place. Doughty, Ehrhoff, and Muzzin scored for the Kings, and Maatta for the Pens. Speaking of which, Maatta looked a little off from his usual self, but that’s what happens when you’ve missed a bunch of time. From the very outset, the Kings were in control of the game. You’re messed up mentally if you remember...

Pittsburgh Penguins top line gets a new look

Coaches know that if something isn’t working then the best thing to do is find something that does.

Something they would need to do in order to beat the San Jose Sharks in San Jose. The Penguins haven’t...

Well, hey. At least these bros are cheering. We guess. There is so much going on. No one really talks what this video should really be focused on: Chris Kunitz actually throwing a body check.

Season Preview: Chris Kunitz – You’ve Got Mail

Chris Kunitz as a Tom Hanks movie This was an easy choice: “You’ve Got Mail” Only because Kunitz has mailed it in since some time in 2013. Also, how dated is “You’ve Got Mail”? The main characters owned bookstores and they fostered their relationship via AOL Mail. Today they would have hooked up on Tinder, and the movie’s entire run time would’ve been 11 minutes...
