  • 15 Best Stanley Cup Champion Rings

    15 Best Stanley Cup Champion Rings

    As I watched the Philadelphia Flyers finish off the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday to close out that bizarre, violent, high-scoring playoff series, one of the first thoughts to pop into my head was, “well, I guess Sid and Evgeni won’t be getting new rings this year. Normally I don’t even think of championship rings when […]

    All 10 Penguins Goals From Last Night In One Minute (Video)

    The Penguins knew they would need to score early and often if they were going to stay alive in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the Philadelphia Flyers.  They would do just that, beating Ilya Bryzgalov and Sergei Bobrovsky five times each during their 10-3 blowout victory last night. With a total of 36 […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 4/18/12 — Jordan Staal

    The Pittsburgh Penguins entered last night’s Game Four match-up with the Philadelphia Flyers knowing that they needed a win in order to stay alive.  They also knew that in order to get that much-needed win, they would need to score plenty of goals, as they Flyers had already proven through the first three games of […]

    Fights And Cheap Shots Mar This Weekend’s NHL Playoff Action (Videos)

    For the past two years I have chosen to discontinue the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” segment during the NHL playoffs because as many of us already know, fights rarely, if ever, take place during the post-season.  However, that has been far from the case during the 2012 NHL playoffs.  In fact, all of […]

    All Hell Breaks Loose At Conclusion Of Penguins vs. Flyers (Video)

    With the Flyers leading 6-3 and only one minute remaining in their Atlantic Division match-up against the Pittsburgh Penguins yesterday afternoon, all hell broke loose.  And when I say “all hell broke loose,” I’m not just talking about a few fights and an exchange of some unfriendly words. Not even close! Instead, “all hell breaking […]

  • The Pens And Sens Laugh Their Way Through The National Anthems (Video)

    The Pens And Sens Laugh Their Way Through The National Anthems (Video)

    Earlier in the month we learned that some do not take too kindly to those who wear hats during the national anthem.  I wonder how those same individuals would feel about seeing someone laugh throughout the singing of the anthem? While they may not be all that impressed with the giggle-fest that broke out during […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 3/20/12 — Malkin, Crosby And Neal

    When the Winnipeg Jets hosted the Washington Capitals last Friday, their fans could be heard taunting Alex Ovechkin with chants of “Crosby’s better!”  During last night’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Jets players would learn that not only is Sidney Crosby better than Ovechkin these days, but so too are Evgeni Malkin and James […]

    Scott Hartnell Slashes Teammate Zac Rinaldo In The Face (Video)

    Scott Hartnell has made a living off getting in the faces of his opponents game in and game out, but yesterday it was his stick that was getting in the face of his teammate, Zac Rinaldo. During Sunday’s matinee match-up against the Pittsburgh Penguins, Hartnell was looking to confront Kris Letang following an open-ice check […]

    AHL’s Steve MacIntyre Loses His Marbles, Attacks Goalie Twice (Video)

    Approximately two months ago, the Pittsburgh Penguins waived left winger Steve MacIntyre and sent him to their AHL affiliate, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.  However, with Sidney Crosby expected to make his return to the line-up in the near future, the NHL’s Penguins may want to consider calling MacIntyre back up to “the show” so that they […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Gleason vs. Engelland — 1/17/12

    Last night’s game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Pittsburgh Penguins treated us to one of the best fights of the 2011-12 NHL season, and a strong candidate for “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Year.”  And we nearly missed it all, as the game cut to a commercial seconds before Tim Gleason and Deryk Engelland […]

    This Day In Sports History (January 12th) – Mario Lemieux

    It was on this day in 1993 when doctors announced that Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Mario Lemieux had been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.  Lemieux was forced to undergo radiation treatments that left his career and life in serious doubt. Despite his condition, Lemieux ended up missing only two months of action and returned to finish the […]
