  • Stat Line of the Night — 1/5/2014 — James Neal

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/5/2014 — James Neal

    With Canada set to name their men’s Olympic hockey roster on Tuesday, one of the biggest questions remaining is whether or not they’ll be taking James Neal to Sochi.  And if Steve Yzerman and company haven’t already made that decision, the Pens’ winger may have helped his cause with his performance during Sunday’s game against […]

  • This Day In Sports History (December 31st) — Mario Lemieux

    This Day In Sports History (December 31st) — Mario Lemieux

    It was on this day in 1988 that Pittsburgh Penguins center Mario Lemieux scored five goals in five different ways.  Lemieux recorded a goal at even-strength, shorthanded, on the power-play, on a penalty shot and into an empty-net. Lemieux became the first, and remains the only, player to accomplish this impressive feat.  Along with scoring […]

    Awkward!: T.J. Oshie Pratfalls After Check From Kris Letang (Video)

    T.J. Oshie of the St. Louis Blues appeared to be paying homage to Mack Sennett during Saturday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. You see, most players just kind of bounce off the boards when they get hit, but not Oshie.  Instead, after T.J. Oshie got hit by the Penguins’ Kris Letang, he appeared to get twisted […]

    There’s really not much point debating which sport has the toughest athletes. You could make a strong case for a number of them, especially football and rugby. Hell, even basketball, baseball, and tennis might have their proponents.  Soccer, golf, and bowling? Not so much. That being said, if you wanted to make a case for […]

    Tomas Hertl wasn’t the only NHL player to score a bunch of goals last night.  Jussi Jokinen of the Pittsburgh Penguins was also lighting the lamp at an incredible rate, recording a hat-trick against the Carolina Hurricanes. That performance from Jokinen had to sting the Canes, who are still on the hook for almost a […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 10/3/2013 — Marc-Andre Fleury

    After enduring a difficult 2012-13 season that saw him get benched in the playoffs in favor of Tomas Vokoun, Marc-Andre Fleury was looking to bounce back in a big way this season and regain the starting goaltending position in Pittsburgh.  He got the nod in goal for the Pens’ home opener last night against the […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 3/10/2013 — Chris Kunitz

    Playing alongside Sidney Crosby sure does have its perks.  Chris Kunitz has found that out firsthand this season, as the Penguins forward entered Sunday with 14 goals and 31 points in his first 25 games this season.  And he added to each of those totals in a big way during yesterday’s match-up with the New […]

    Sidney Crosby Plays Goalie for Local Ball Hockey Team

    When Sidney Crosby played his last NHL game, he did so as arguably the league’s best player. When he plays his next NHL game, he may do so as the league’s best up-and-coming goalie. Okay, so that probably won’t end up happening, but who knows?  If this lockout lasts long enough, Crosby may get enough […]
