RECAP: Game 46. The Ghost of Rex Gildo.

NBCSN tried to bill this as a rivalry night, but they were a day late. It was a matchup of two of the elite teams in the league, and that was about it. PLOT TWIST: Penguins had key players injured. Again. Malkin and Letang were both MIA, and there was no Maatta and no Hornqvist. That guy above is the greatest. Watch this, and you’ll know why. Last game before the All-Star break...

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 This and That by @ChicksDigHockey

It's been three days since we had a Penguins game. Three days off is a long time for a hockey team dealing with injuries and illness. Three days is a nice amount of time to integrate a new winger into your system. Three days without hockey has given me time to get caught up on my reading. Here are some thoughts I've had as a result: - I was excited for the David Perron signing...

RECAP: Game 36. First rough patch of the season.

GIF: Derrick Pouliot’s first shot in the NHL is a snipe job

There has been a lot of hype around Derrick Pouliot. In his first NHL game he wasted no time showing why. On his first shot, he went upstairs on Roberto Luongo: Boy is that just nasty. A goal scorers goal. Looks like the hype was well-deserved.

Here comes Derrick Pouliot

The Penguins made a big roster move this morning and called up Derrick Pouliot. Some good thoughts on this by Ryan Wilson over at [ HockeyBuzz ]. Now we have seen defensemen get called up before only to not play, specifically Scott Harrington, but it is still very interesting to see the team physically call Pouliot up. He is crushing it in the AHL so far this year. In 23 games he...
