Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby used his stick to catch his teammate's stick in mid-air during Wednesday night's game against Washington.Left winger Patric Hornqvist lost his stick as he tried to block a shot on the defensive end, and his stick went flying about 10 feet away. Crosby was following the puck when Hornqvist's stick landed on his own, and he simply held up...
Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby showed some awesome multi-tasking skills on this play. He caught Patric Hornqvist’s stick with his own stick and managed to pass it back to him on the fly. Not something you see every day and it looked quite difficult. [@PeteBlackburn]

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is a jack of all trades.
He scores goals, sets up scoring opportunities and also manages equipment, apparently.
During Wednesday night’s Penguins-Capitals game, Patric Hornqvist had his stick knocked out of his hand. So it sure looked like his team would be at a disadvantage while he played stick-less.
Wrong. Crosby managed to catch...
Sidney Crosby did one of the cooler things you’ll see this hockey season and it had nothing to do with a goal, a pass or a play on the puck.
Teammate Patric Hörnqvist had his stick chopped out of his hand against the Capitals Thursday night, sending it sailing through the air toward Crosby. The stick banked off Crosby, catching his attention, but what happened next is nothing...
Here’s a pretty awesome highlight from last night’s Penguins-Capitals game that you may not have noticed in real time. Patric Hörnqvist had his stick knocked out of his hand during a Capitals’ player’s shot on net, sending the lumber sailing through the air. Most of the time when this happens, the player in question is forced

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals really don’t like each other.
Wednesday’s meeting between the two hated rivals included plenty of fireworks, and they sure didn’t wait long to mix things up. Just eight minutes into the first period a massive brawl broke out on the ice after Washington’s Michael Latta got into it with Steve Downie near the Pittsburgh bench...
There was a lot of good and a lot if bad with this game for the Penguins. Ultimately, to escape Washington with a much-needed division win is good enough for right now.
Pens had a jump in their step from the very beginning. It felt like a playoff game, and the Pens were ready. Mostly because Robert Bortuzzo was eating pretzels up in a sky box somewhere.
So funny what a difference...
Determined to get a jump on the March 2 trade deadline, GM Jim Rutherford moved boldly yesterday to reinforce the Penguins’ bottom six for a postseason run. JR dealt a fourth-round pick in 2015, a second-round pick in 2016, and rugged forward Zach Sill to Toronto for forward Daniel Winnik.
The swap capped off prolonged negotiations between Rutherford and his counterpart, Dave Nonis...
It was only a matter of time before the real Braden Holtby showed up. The Penguins lit Holtby up for four goals on 26 shots, which is huge, being that they had only scored one goal in their previous 91 shots against him.
More importantly, the Penguins reminded not only the Capitals, but maybe even themselves that they actually can play against the Metro division big boys.
Sidney Crosby scored his 20th goal of the season, Evgeni Malkin added three assists, and the Pittsburgh Penguins held on to beat the Washington Capitals 4-3 on Wednesday night, averting a sweep of the season series.
Patric Hornqvist, Brandon Sutter and Chris Kunitz also had goals for Pittsburgh, which has won three straight and leads Washington by three points for third place...

The Penguins-Capitals tilt took a wild turn Wednesday night when the two teams through hands right near both teams’ benches.
It began when Pittburgh’s Blake Comeau grabbed a hold of Caps forward Tom Wilson and tossed him through the open door into the Penguins bench. Capitals forward Michael Latta jumped into the Penguins’ bench to come to the aid of his teammate...
I’ve only seen something like this happen a handful of times and certainly not any time recently in the NHL. Rather than have the benches clear, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals fought on the Penguins bench. The small tussle escalated quite quickly and surprisingly only resulted in four minor roughing penalties. It’s safe to […]

It was announced today that the Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired 29 year-old forward Daniel Winnik form the Toronto Maple Leafs. In exchange, the Penguins gave up Zach Sill, a 2015 fourth-round draft pick, and a 2016 second-round draft pick. For the cap geeks out there it’s important to note that the Leafs will retain 50% of Winnik’s 1.3 million dollar salary.
#Leafs trade Daniel Winnik to #Pens for Zach Sill, 2016 second-rounder and 2015 fourth-rounder.

Braden Holtby is a good goalie. But is he really that good to only have given up 1 goal in three games?
Lets take a look:
This is Holtby’s season against the Penguins:
Incredible that he has faced 91 shots, and given up one goal.
Holtby isn’t getting tested in front
