Flames-Penguins Preview

Over the past seven seasons, the Pittsburgh Penguins had the luxury of facing a Calgary Flames team that ranked in the bottom half of the league in scoring, and the results in the series followed suit. Despite a recent slide, this season's group in Calgary has nearly kept pace with Pittsburgh's scoring and could make it difficult for the Penguins to extend a seven-game winning streak...

Feedback From "Defining a Late Hit in Pittsburgh" by ChicksDigHockey

For me, there is no better feeling than getting feedback from a post I put a lot of time and thought into. That happened for me today with my "Defining a Late Hit in Pittsburgh" post. I thought I'd share some of the more interesting comments I got: From Dave Sandford, NHLI/Getty photographer who has shot 16 Stanley Cup Finals: You mainly wrote that post with the same feelings as I...

What the hell happened: Pens fall on the Isle

Looks like Cal Clutterbuck had it right. The Isles completed the sweep Saturday night and everyone wants to die. But life will go on. People will point the finger at Steve Downie for that bizarre penalty he took in the third period, but the game is roughly 60 minutes long. Downie did what everyone reading this would’ve wanted to do, and it was great. The Islanders blow. These...

Let’s Not Rush the Beau Bennett Hysteria

The Pittsburgh Penguins downed the Montreal Canadiens Tuesday night by a score of 4-0. The Penguins third line, most recently comprised of Beau Bennett, Brandon Sutter, and Steve Downie really carried the load for the team, netting the first three goals of the game to essentially bury the Canadiens within the first 25 minutes, before […] The post Let’s Not Rush the Beau Bennett...

Dustin Byfuglien hits Steve Downie after whistle; chaos ensues

            On Thursday night, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Winnipeg Jets clashed north of the border, with the Penguins winning 4-3 in a shootout. That would’ve been pretty non-descript if it weren’t for one controversial incident. You see, Dustin Byfuglien is a very large man. Like 6-foot-5, 260 pounds large. So when he gets angry...

Dustin Byfuglien's Dirty Hit on Steve Downie following Goal

First, Steve Downie is no saint; he'd probably tell you that. But check out this dirty, unnecessary, bush league hit that Winnipeg Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien put on Downie. This is unacceptable. After the play is over, I believe that Downie has the expectation to not be slambed into the end boards. I don't think that's being unreasonable, right? The play is over, he's scored...

Steve Downie scores, is shoved into the boards by Dustin Byfuglien

Dustin Byfuglien should expect a call from the NHL’s Department of Player Safety. After Steve Downie tallied a goal for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Byfuglien checked him awkwardly into the boards. As you might expect, Downie wasn’t too happy and tried to jump Big Buff. The punishment during the game was a fitting example of more poor officiating as the two men each received two...
