We typically keep things pretty Pens-centric around here, but today we’re going to dish out some takes from around the NHL this week. There isn’t a lot of feel-good stories this week. Pascal Dupuis is out for the season, Jack Johnson has some terrible parents, and Toronto and Edmonton suck. This might be the most depressing HotTake Tuesday of all time, but at least we can rag...
The Pittsburgh Penguins avoided a season-high third straight loss with a big victory their last time out. They've had plenty of success against Toronto, although the Maple Leafs appear to have righted the ship just in time after an ugly three-game losing streak.
The Penguins go for their fifth straight win in the series when they host a Maple Leafs team that's seeking a third consecutive...

There seems to be this undercurrent of discussion that’s occurred on the vast expanse of the internet this year, facilitated by several specific persons and entities, that has attempted to kick the tires on some type of bizarre debate about the skills and ability of Evgeni Malkin.
Boy, 657 points in 538 NHL games sure doesn’t buy what it used to.
Generational talent in the NHL...

BOSTON — Shutting down two of the top-five forwards in the NHL always is a difficult challenge, but it’s even tougher when key defensive players are out of the lineup.
The Bruins were without No. 1 defenseman Zdeno Chara, as well as quality defensive forwards David Krejci and Chris Kelly in Monday night’s 3-2 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins because of injuries. It...

Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury secured his 300th career NHL win Monday night with a 3-2 overtime win over the Boston Bruins, becoming the third-fastest netminder to reach the milestone.
When Penguins center Evgeni Malkin was asked about his goalie’s accomplishment, he said that he couldn’t believe it.

The 2013 playoffs were a long time ago. And a regular season game won’t erase those horrid memories of watching Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin getting shutdown over a four game span.
But there is something to be said for Malkin and Crosby scoring all of the Penguins goals in Boston in this one. There is something even bigger about them combining for the game winner. It is something...
Marc-Andre Fleury's biggest challenge after regulation was cleaning up the shaving cream shower his Pittsburgh teammates gave him in celebration of the goalie's 300th career victory.
Toweling off the mess took longer than the Penguins needed in overtime to beat the Boson Bruins 3-2 Monday night on Evgeni Malkin's goal 32 seconds into the extra session.

Sidney Crosby showed why he’s one of the best players in the world Monday night when he took advantage of a Boston Bruins line change and cashed in for his ninth goal of the season.
The Bruins brought on their fourth line of Jordan Caron, David Pastrnak and Alex Khokhlachev, but the Penguins kept big guns Patric Hornqvist and Sidney Crosby on the ice so the lines would be mismatched...
The Bruins looked to bounce back from a loss against Montreal as they welcomed in the Pittsburgh Penguins to the TD Garden Monday night.
BOSTON — Evgeni Malkin is one of the top five forwards in the NHL and he showed why Monday night.
He scored two goals, including the winner in overtime to give his Pittsburgh Penguins a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins at TD Garden.
The Penguins lead the season series 1-0 and sit atop the Metropolitan Division, at least momentarily, with a 14-4-1 record.
Here are the “3 Stars”...
BOSTON (AP) Evgeni Malkin scored his second goal of the night 32 seconds into overtime, giving the Pittsburgh Penguins a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Monday.

TD Garden – Boston, MA
Despite being 7-3 in their last ten games, the Bruins are a borderline disaster right now. They’ve been cherry-picking wins off of the bottom feeders of the league, and it seems like the last time they beat a team with a winning record, Milan Lucic was still being taken somewhat...
The Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins will match-up on Monday for the first of three meetings this season. Both teams are looking to return to the win column after suffering disappointing losses on Saturday night.

The Pittsburgh Penguins (13-4-2) and Boston Bruins (13-9) will meet for the first time in the 2014-15 season tonight at the TD Garden. The two teams have developed a general dislike for each other, especially during their battle in the 2013 Eastern Conference Final. The Bruins swept the Penguins in that series and Pittsburgh has been trying to...
Sidney Crosby is known for a lot of things in the hockey world.
The Pittsburgh Penguins superstar is known for his incredible talent, unmatched vision on the ice and impressive leadership. One thing he’s not known for, however, is what he can do when his gloves come off.
Crosby rarely drops the mitts for a fight, as the Penguins would much rather he use his hands for other things...
Pittsburgh Penguins head coach Mike Johnston made it abundantly clear that the team’s home-and-home series against the New York Islanders this weekend would be treated like a playoff series. Luckily for Johnston, this wasn’t a playoff series, because honestly, it didn’t go well at all. The Penguins managed to force overtime in an otherwise flat performance […]
