WATCH: Kris Letang hospitalized after hit

It’s been a rough year for Kris Letang. The Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman suffered yet another health scare Saturday afternoon when he was hospitalized following a scary-looking hit from Arizona Coyotes forward Shane Doan. The hit wasn’t the sort of high hit to the head or boarding we’ve come to expect when talking about injury-inducing plays. However, the scariest part...

RECAP: Game 75. Pens get some breathing room with a big win.

Malkin and Hornqvist were making their big return. The Pens were gonna have healthy forwards. Nope. Nice try. David Perron was a late scratch with a mysterious illness. And Kris Letang may be out for a while after getting rocked by Shane Doan. The Pens were going into this weekend kind of on shaky ground. Everyone is afraid to admit it, but the Pens were a couple losses away this...

Penguins in a Bind

Thanks to Saturday’s 3-2 victory over Arizona, the Penguins’ prospects are a little brighter. With the postseason just around the corner, the black and gold moved into second place in the Metropolitan Division. They hold a seemingly comfortable eight-point cushion over Ottawa. Don’t be fooled. This team isn’t a legit Cup contender…not by a long shot. Indeed, the Pens have...

Gameday 75: A good day to go to a gun bash. Pens host Coyotes.

Arizona Coyotes (23-44-8) at Pittsburgh Penguins (40-23-11) 1:00 PM – ROOT Sports CONSOL Energy Center, Pittsburgh, PA There is really only one reason to be excited about this game, and that is the return of Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist. Malkin is the game changer on this team, and probably the only player who can miss a significant amount of time and not miss a beat upon...

RECAP 73: A Blue, Blue, Blue, Blue Christmas. Pens fall in OT.

Take this one with a grain of salt, because having Evgeni Malkin in the lineup completely changes the dynamic of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Still. The Pens have now lost 10 of their last 16 at home. They’re 1-4-1 in their last six games. The problem lately had been slow starts, and it didn’t change here. And despite only registering three shots in the first, they were able to...

A Tale of Two Penguins Teams by @pghgirl15222

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”  This perfectly describes the team that is the Pittsburgh Penguins. Sometimes when watching them they seem to be an un-stoppable force and other times they are the JV hockey team throwing around ill-fated passes and  a dump and chase that is more dump than chase.  For fans this might be the most frustrating thing...

Are the Penguins Primed for a Collapse?

It was a pretty goal. Especially by recent black-and-gold standards. Beau Bennett cruised into the slot, gathered up a loose puck, and slipped it through the goalie’s five-hole. Problem is, it was Marc-Andre Fleury’s five-hole. Bennett’s wrong-way play seems to epitomize the plight of the Penguins, who’ve lost four straight. A team built to score goals suddenly can’t buy...

Bill Guerin thinks the Penguins whine too much

The Pittsburgh Penguins have a reputation as being a team that loves to complain. Sidney Crosby and his teammates have been given nicknames surrounding this very idea, mocking the fact the Penguins are often seen complaining to the officials after penalty calls and offside whistles. Is there any validity to these statements or are fans of opposing teams just trying to rag on the...

Why Officiating is a NHL Problem and Not a Penguins’ Problem

It turns out the Penguins are not being targeted By: Jim Meinecke I had just enough time to throw together a quick post on a very hot topic…officiating in the NHL. After the last two contests against Detroit and New Jersey, fans are pretty upset with the officiating. Many fans believe there is a bias and that the league may be “out to get” the Penguins. I decided to do a little...

WATCH: Steve Downie pushes an official, earns a misconduct

Steve Downie broke one of the most obvious rules in the NHL – never push/hit an official. Downie apparently forgot this rule as he knocked an official to the ice while trying to stir things up with the Red Wings. He received a 10-minute misconduct and avoided being tossed from the game as the officials believed Downie’s blunder wasn’t intentional. He later went on to pick...
