PITTSBURGH BOBBLEHEAD THEATRE – EP. 3
Marc Andre Fleury missed practice and tested negative for the mumps. What do these precautions look like? Pittsburgh Bobblehead Theatre has an idea.
The NHL sent out a league-wide memo Tuesday on information about curtailing mumps and preventing further transmission, reports ESPN.com.
From the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention website: “Mumps is a contagious disease that is caused by the mumps virus. Mumps typically starts with a few days of fever, headache...

With the mumps sweeping across the dressing room of the Pittsburgh Penguins, it’s fair that we’re all asking questions about the team’s medical staff and their policies for dealing with the virus:
Why weren’t the Penguins more proactive when they knew this is an issue in the National Hockey League?
I’ve seen this one a lot. It is certainly...
The Canucks just finished up owning the Pittsburgh Penguins which we all know now was because of the mumps. It didn’t take long before games against the Leafs, Sens and Canadiens gave Canucks nation a scare, not a mumps scare, but we got a bit worried. The line blender saw its debut on the Eastern […]

Toronto Maple Leafs have traded defenseman player 1 to the Pittsburgh Penguins for player 2
Everybody got problems right now. Have you seen twitter today in Pittsburgh. Dear God. James and Nick dive in head first today to get to the real issue at hand in the NHL. Mumps… and the Oilers, but mostly the mumps. Get your breathing masks, yinz!
Are the Pens the poster child on how to not publicly deal with problems?
Have they created a credibility problem? Seth Rorabaugh...
The NHL has been plagued by several cases of the mumps this winter, and the outbreak doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. Sidney Crosby and Beau Bennett of the Pittsburgh Penguins were the latest to get diagnosed this week and, unfortunately, there’s the possibility that Bennett maaaaaay have given it to some sick

Blake Comeau has been playing out of his mind lately. Injuries and illnesses have bought him precious ice time and he has not disappointed. Being on a line with Evgeni Malkin agrees with Comeau. He potted his ninth goal just 48 seconds into Pittsburgh's 3-1 win over the Flames on Friday. On Saturday, in a game that was more scrappy than skilled, he netted one past Bobrovsky to tie...
Beau Bennett may have the Mumps.
And this could turn even worse, because Bennett made a trip to Pittsburgh’s Children Hospital last week as a part of the Penguins annual charity.
#BREAKING Pens say Beau Bennett might have mumps. He visited kids at Children's Hospital last week. Those kids are now being tested.

What a nightmare.
Longtime goalie Tomas Vokoun has decided to retire, according to the Czech publication Sport.

When Sidney Crosby was recently interviewed by the media, no one could take their eyes off the right side of his face. Crosby’s puffy cheek seemed to be a pretty clear indicator that he had the mumps, but the team was cautious in saying why they were resting the star forward this weekend. The Penguins initially claimed there was no indication that Crosby had mumps.

Stan Savran is going to want this one back. During the first intermission between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Columbus Blue Jackets, Savran was trying to explain how the Penguins were being completely overwhelmed by the Blue Jackets. The analogy he went with was an uncomfortable comparison to the protests over the Eric Garner “I Can’t Breathe” death in New York.
That’s Stan Savran of ROOT Sports with one horrible swing and a miss during the first intermission of Saturday night’s Penguins-Blue Jackets game. While talking about the Penguins’ ineffectiveness during the opening period, Savran attempted to make a joke (or something) about the throng of athletes who have shown support for Eric Garner by wearing

The Pittsburgh Penguins have gotten some of their best play lately from the unlikely pairing of Evgeni Malkin and Brandon Sutter. The two have been so good together that Ryan Wilson, one of the absolute “must read” Penguins writers out there, proposed that the team may be best served to leave the two together, at […]

Rookie defenseman Derrick Pouliot has been confirming why he remains the top player in the Pittsburgh Penguins prospect pool.

In his last season with the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League, he impressively posted 70 points in 58 games.
