    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 […]

    Sidney Crosby And Evgeni Malkin Are “Perfect Strangers” (Parody Video)

    They may not be Larry Appleton and Balki Bartokomous, but Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are still quite the amazing duo. In addition to wining two Eastern Conference Championships and one Stanley Cup during their five seasons together with the Pittsburgh Penguins, they have also captured one Calder Trophy, one Hart Trophy, one Conn Smythe […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Vitale vs. Campbell — 12/5/11

    When the Boston Bruins traveled to Pittsburgh last night to take on Sidney Crosby and the Penguins, many watched in anticipation of perhaps seeing this match-up once again in the playoffs, during the Eastern Conference finals.  With the Bruins and Pens currently occupying the top two positions in the Eastern Conference, the players seemed to […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Asham vs. Erskine — 12/1/11

    Over one month ago, Pittsburgh Penguins enforcer Arron Asham knocked out Jay Bealge of the Washington Capitals and proceeded to taunt him seconds after.  Asham apologized for his actions immediately after the game, but the Caps still had a score to settle with the hard-throwing middleweight. John Erskine decided to settle that score following a […]

    “It’s scary to think that Crosby’s back.” That was likely on the mind of 29 teams in the NHL when Sidney Crosby recorded two goals and two assists in his return to the Penguins’ line-up on November 20th, and it seems to have been on the mind of DJ Steve Porter when he was creating […]

    Welcome Back, Kid: Top 9 Moments From Sidney Crosby’s Career…So Far

    The Pittsburgh Penguins’ Sidney Crosby just spent the last ten months battling post-concussion symptoms—an absence so long that some were beginning to wonder whether his hockey career might be in jeopardy.

    He’s Back!

    Picture Of The Day: Sidney Crosby’s Resurrection

    The Penguins’ savior has risen! But unlike Jesus Christ, who according to the Catholics took three days to rise from the dead, Sidney Crosby required a little more than one weekend to return to action.  In fact, it took the Penguins’ captain nearly one full year to recover from a concussion he sustained last season […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Asham vs. McLeod — 11/15/11

    An incredible goal from Matt Duchene wasn’t the only highlight to come from last night’s game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Colorado Avalanche.  Evgeni Malkin also provided an spectacular goal of his own, and enforcers Arron Asham and Cody McLeod gave us a spirited 20-second bout that featured plenty of devastating right hands. Duchene […]

    Could this be an early “Goal of the Year” candidate?  Sorry Jamie Benn, but it has my vote! With only a few minutes remaining in the opening period and the Colorado Avalanche already leading 1-0, Matt Duchene took a pass from Paul Stastny, dragged the puck through his legs and found the back of the […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Engelland vs. Thorburn — 10/17/11

    Going forward, we expect it will be tough for any of the NHL’s combatants to match the performance put forth by Cam Janssen and Brian McGrattan over the weekend. Despite giving it their best shot, Deryk Engelland of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Chris Thorburn of the Winnipeg Jets couldn’t place themselves among the early nominees […]

    With all of the attention surrounding the issues of fighting, headshots and concussions in hockey these days, the last thing the NHL needed was what transpired in Pittsburgh last night during a game between the Penguins and the Washington Capitals.

    Summertime is clearly a slow time for sports fans and sports blogs alike.  With the MLB acting as the only major North American sports league currently in action, as players from the NFL, NHL and NBA enjoy their time in the sun with their smokeshow girlfriends, it only makes sense for us to keep busy […]

    After trailing their best-of-seven opening round series 3-1, the Tampa Bay Lightning were able to force a Game 7 and were suddenly one win away from advancing to the second round of the playoffs for the first time since they raised the Stanley Cup in 2004.  Winning a do-or-die game on the road at the […]
