Sidney Crosby Catches Teammate's Stick In Mid-Air

When Patric Hörnqvist had his stick slapped out of his hand, he probably thought he was going to have to do that awkward thing where you chase the puck with your hands spread out wide and try to throw your body in front of every shot. Instead, Sidney Crosby miraculously caught the damn thing and handed it right back… » 2/26/15 9:23pm 2/26/15 9:23pm

Why The NHL Lost Control Of Its Mumps Outbreak

This is the most baffling sports medicine story of the year: Thirteen NHL players and two referees have been diagnosed with mumps—a potentially severe and exceedingly viral infection that classically causes fever, body aches, malaise, and in about half of cases, parotitis (a painful swelling of the salivary glands).

Sidney Crosby Was Not Arrested In Ottawa

Preeeetty major fuckup here from the Ottawa Sun, which reported earlier this morning that Penguins star Sidney Crosby was arrested for unknown reasons. That would be a big story in the middle of the NHL offseason doldrums, if it were true, which it is not. » 9/03/14 8:21am 9/03/14 8:21am

Dan Bylsma Was Doomed By His Roster, Not His Coaching

Changes are coming in Pittsburgh but they're not going to be the right ones. After the Penguins punted a 3-1 series lead and home Game 7 to the Rangers, you can bet any amount of money you like that coach Dan Bylsma will be fired. Only because it's easier to fire a coach than it is to find six decent forwards. » 5/14/14 9:48am 5/14/14 9:48am

Sidney Crosby Reaches The Boiling Point

If these playoffs will be remembered for anything, it'll be for players squirting each other with water bottles and spearing each other in the nuts.

Sidney Crosby Finally Scored. Will Rick Nash Before It's Too Late?

When Sidney Crosby scored early in the second period last night, his reaction was noteworthy. Here was the best player in the world celebrating a breakaway goal like someone who hadn't done this in the playoffs 40 previous times. » 5/06/14 4:15pm 5/06/14 4:15pm

Sidney Crosby Breaks Stick Slashing Artem Anisimov

Here's Sidney Crosby getting pissed at Artem Anisimov in the second period of Game 6 against the Blue Jackets and lashing out by swinging his stick at his legs.

Why Sidney Crosby Got Booed In Pittsburgh

Let's mince no words here in saying that Sidney Crosby, the greatest active hockey player in the universe, is the reason that the Pittsburgh Penguins are not currently playing their home games in Kansas City. He is beloved in his adopted hometown, but when you're as good as he is, love only gets you so far. Ahead of… » 4/28/14 3:59pm 4/28/14 3:59pm

Sidney Crosby Gets Whacked In The Face By A Linesman

The Penguins, playing for absolutely nothing but trying to turn around a .500 run since the Olympic break, fell 4-1 to Carolina last night. It was this sort of game all around. [Gif by Mike Darnay/PensBurgh] » 4/02/14 9:50am 4/02/14 9:50am

Yes, Sidney Crosby Should Get To Skip The DMV Line

Sidney Crosby renewed his driver's license at the DMV this week. Unlike all of the rest of us, he didn't have to wait, thanks to Pennsylvania state policy. GET ANGRY (or don't because this policy actually makes sense). » 8/10/13 3:50pm 8/10/13 3:50pm

Not Content Merely To Win, The Bruins Are Traumatizing Franchises

The Boston Bruins will welcome the winner of the Chicago-L.A. series to the Stanley Cup Final because of their utter dismantling of the Pittsburgh Penguins. In that series, the Bruins were able to stonewall a Pittsburgh team that won 75 percent of its regular season games and led the league in scoring by a healthy… » 6/08/13 9:06pm 6/08/13 9:06pm

Penguins Keep Getting Trolled, Can't Catch A Goddamn Break

It was bad enough that the Pittsburgh Penguins are getting completely, systematically dismantled by the Boston Bruins in the NHL's Eastern Conference finals, and that Sidney Crosby, who has been completely shut down for the first two games of the series, got trolled from afar by a random JetBlue pilot today. But this… » 6/05/13 12:05am 6/05/13 12:05am

Boston Pilot Uses Crying Baby To Drop A Burn On Sidney Crosby

This tweet comes to us from Dan Roche, who covers the Bruins for WBZ and was flying back to Boston this morning after watching the B's dismantle the Penguins in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals. It's probably the only decent joke that has ever been told by a pilot. » 6/04/13 5:08pm 6/04/13 5:08pm

Sidney Crosby Blasts Through Two Defenders For Filthy Breakaway Goal

This play didn't begin as a breakaway. When Sidney Crosby got the puck at center ice, Thomas Hickey was in his way, with Lubomir Visnovsky closing in on Crosby's right. Plenty of room. » 5/09/13 10:40pm 5/09/13 10:40pm

Sidney Crosby Took A Puck To The Face

NHL points leader and early MVP frontrunner Sidney Crosby left the ice under his own power after taking a puck to the mouth in the Penguins game today against the Islanders.

Yahoo's Hockey Scribes Have Finally Cracked Under The Strain Of The NHL…

The NHL lockout is a man-made catastrophe with many victims. Montreal poutine vendors, Boston bar-puke moppers and Vancouver glaziers all stand to take a bath this year without the NHL stimulating the local eat/drink/smash economies. Even a third-rate alleged professional league such as the NHL keeps several dozen… » 12/22/12 9:50pm 12/22/12 9:50pm

Sidney Crosby Played Goalie In A Dek Hockey Game The Other Night

Had there been no NHL lockout, the Pittsburgh Pensguins would have had a travel day Friday after a road game in Boston on Thursday and another one in Winnipeg on Saturday. As it was, Sidney Crosby had some time to kill, and since Justin Bieber had already swagged his way through Pittsburgh, Crosby quietly put on the… » 12/18/12 9:55am 12/18/12 9:55am
