What The Hell Happened: Bobby Lu outduels Marc-Andre Fleury for extra point

View image | gettyimages.com This was one hell of a game. The Penguins fell behind 3-1 in the third period in this game, and then battled back to tie it at three late. It was a well deserved point for the Penguins because they didn’t play horrible, especially considering they were without Brandon Sutter and Steve Downie. The Penguins lost another player as Blake Comeau went...

Finally, Pens Have an Edge

By: Joe Guzy Steve Downie has made an impact unimaginable by preseason pundits. (Gregory Shamus/Getty Images) Over the years, the Penguins have “earned” a superstar reputation to go along with their superstar lineup. With a roster headlined by Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, it’s easy to see why. But after a playoff run where the Penguins saw their captain take abuse night...

RECAP: Game 32. Pens win a street fight 3-1

Usually Panther-Penguin games are mundane. Not this one. This game was downright hateful. Couple of reasons for that: 1. Willie Mitchell, the Panthers’ captain for some reason, hates Evgeni Malkin. This happened a long time ago, and Mitchell probably didn’t forget: Mitchell and Malkin had a little convo early in this game, and it wasn’t about Xmas gifts. Mitchell had his...

It’s always awesome when teams do stuff like this to lighten the mood and get people in the mood for the holidays.

What the Hell Happened: The more Mumps they come across, the more wins they see

Marc-Andre Fleury didn’t have the Mumps. But he ended up making the AVs sicks. Fleury and Colorado goaltender Calvin Pickard, who sounds like the name of a marginal villian in a Jean Claude Van Damme movie, battled to a 0-0 tie in regulation. In a game that featured a ton of action for a scoreless affair, the Penguins mostly dominated. But Pickard played out of his mind, and kept...

RECAP: Game 30. Time is a flat circle

You can see why the Lightning are so good. What a fun team to watch. Minus Steven Stamkos who was completely invisible. Evgeni Malkin would get murdered if he didn’t show up for a big game by hockey pundits. You have to say the same for the Lightning golden boy. Yikes. Stamkos was no where to found in this one. The Lightning do have a hell of a team, minus a reliable goaltender...

Blake Comeau Thrives in Pittsburgh by @ChicksDigHockey

Blake Comeau has been playing out of his mind lately. Injuries and illnesses have bought him precious ice time and he has not disappointed. Being on a line with Evgeni Malkin agrees with Comeau. He potted his ninth goal just 48 seconds into Pittsburgh's 3-1 win over the Flames on Friday. On Saturday, in a game that was more scrappy than skilled, he netted one past Bobrovsky to tie...

Key Observations Heading Into Game 30 Between the Lightning and Penguins

By: Andy Hughes (@PensNation_Andy) Although Sidney Crosby will miss tonight’s game as a result of the mumps, this match up between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Tampa Bay Lightning should be very entertaining. The Penguins (19-6-4) and Lightning (19-9-3) are two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference and this game should be a good test for both teams. A battle between two of...

Penguins Keep On Keepin’ On

By: Joe Guzy Picking up points with this depleted roster would be much more difficult without Fleury. (Photo by Gregory Shamus/NHLI via Getty Images) The Pittsburgh Penguins have earned 8 out of a possible 12 points so far this month. With a depleted top-six and an ever increasing list of call-ups, it’s quite the feat that they’ve even walked away with those points at all....
