Flyers' pick affected by Tampa's dominance...but that's not bad

  View image | gettyimages.com While the Flyers sit idle in this year's Stanley Cup playoffs, they still have one claim to stake -- and that's contingent on Tampa Bay's performance in this year's tournament. The Orange and Black hold the Lightning's first-round pick in this year's draft, thanks to Ron Hextall's trade of Braydon Coburn. Naturally, that pick was set to be...

A local blogger is trying to get Pierre McGuire removed from the air because he thinks he is helping the Rangers.

We cannot stand DK on Pittsburgh sports. We feel he has become nothing but a shill for the Penguins. We’re fans of the Penguins and all but this is extreme, and embarrassing:    Yikes! The Penguins have a video staff we’re pretty sure so wouldn’t they be able to find it themselves? Secondly, to assert, that a broadcaster’s body language causes Steve Downie to get called...

WATCH: Steve Downie pushes an official, earns a misconduct

He received a 10-minute misconduct and avoided being tossed from the game as the officials believed Downie’s blunder wasn’t intentional. He later went on to pick...

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...

RECAP: Game 42. The Wild are a mess.

“Hey Mike, will I get fired too?” The Wild are a disgrace. At no point was this game even close. – It looked like the Wild’s controllers broke on the Pens’ opening goal. Hack Sill (yes, we are calling him Hack Sill) finally got his first point as a Penguin, and the Pens were off and running. The worst part is people using this goal against the worst team in the Northern...
