How are you planning on spending this snowbound evening? Hopefully you weren’t planning on watching the Wizards, Sixers (you definitely weren’t), or the Islanders play tonight. The NHL has postponed today’s Islanders—Flyers game as well as tomorrow’s Capitals—Penguins game. The Capitals game yesterday was also…
The Pittsburgh Penguins fired coach Mike Johnston today and named Mike Sullivan their new coach. The new Mike was serving as coach of the Penguins’ very succesful AHL affiliate.
The Edmonton Oilers got a rare win last night in Pittsburgh against Evgeni Malkin and the Penguins. But the Penguins did send it to a shootout, on a comeback that Evgeni Malkin started here. He now has two of the prettiest goals I’ve seen all year.
Heading into last night, the Penguins were a respectable 10-7-0, but they weren’t scoring. Marc-Andre Fleury has been amazing, but the offense—headed by two of the best players in the world in Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, and bolstered by the offseason addition of Phil Kessel—had been bloodless. Just 2.06 goals…
The Lakers Bros are the centerpiece in the Hall of Sports Bros, but these Penguins bros deserve a spot somewhere. These guys wigged out after witnessing a hit right in front of their frickin’ seats. Hockey’s wild, man.
The Penguins’ owners are asking $750 million for the team, which is probably unrealistic and would be a record for an American NHL franchise.
Last month, Penguins owners Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle announced they had hired Morgan Stanley to explore a sale of the team. This week, according to the Pittsburgh Business Times, the first of the bids is expected to come in.
With NHL free agency an hour old, the biggest move is a trade: the Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired Phil Kessel from the Maple Leafs for...well, from the Leafs’ point of view, it’s not really about what they got in exchange. But let’s see anyway:
There are rumblings around the league that the Penguins, currently exploring a possible sale of the franchise, could put Evgeni Malkin on the trade block.
A reader sent along some photos from a meeting room in a Pittsburgh hotel, taken earlier this week, that appear to contain notes from the NHL officials’ meeting before Game 4 of the Rangers-Penguins series.
The Pittsburgh Penguins lost 2-1 to the New York Rangers last night, putting them at a one-game deficit in their playoff series and just two more losses away from elimination. These are stressful times for players and executives alike, and Penguins GM Jim Rutherford let the loss get the better of him.
Pascal Dupuis, on getting the shocking news that he had a blood clot in his lung. And then, 11 months later, a second one.
The Penguins and Capitals were feeling a bit feisty last night, so much so that they decided have a scrap right on the Penguins' bench. I'm not sure if this qualifies as a true line brawl, but it's still pretty crazy.
To be clear, Marc Methot's hip check is much smoother than Kris Letang's effort on David Backes, but the Penguin got the job done.
Florida Panthers captain Willie Mitchell got tied up with Pittsburgh's Kris Letang, and inexplicably resorted to swinging Letang's own helmet at him. Willie Mitchell's a lawless man.
The thing about mumps is that it's contagious well before you even realize you have it. Who knows what Sidney Crosby was licking and spitting on before his face swelled up like a decorative, seasonal gourd. But we know what forward Beau Bennett, the latest stricken Penguin, was up to: hanging out with kids with…
Sidney Crosby's mumpy-looking face on Friday did not lie. The Penguins' captain officially has the mumps. Crosby, who sat out Friday's and Saturday's games, will miss Monday's game against the Lightning. His status will continue to be monitored.
