By now, we are all familiar with the fact that Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta is expected to miss a month of hockey action after electing to have a tumor (that could potentially be cancerous) from his thyroid. What we don’t know is exactly how the Penguins will attempt to replace him. Robert Bortuzzo Set […]

Justin Williams and Evgeni Malkin had a dust-up in Thursday nights Penguins-Kings game. Darryl Sutter is crazy, and this was his immediate reaction:
New GIF setting: Palindrome
Get down boy, go head, get down.
Evgeni Malkin completely lost his cool with Justin Williams and punched the LA forward in the head after both men fell to the ice. It’s clear the two men were pretty heated, but Malkin crosses the line by punching Williams after he’s defenseless on the ice.

The final moment of the Penguins Stanley Cup clinching victory in 2009 will be forever etched in our minds as a vision of goalie Marc-Andre Fleury desperately diving across the net to save a Nick Lidstrom shot, and preserve the win. It was certainly his finest moment, one that temporarily erased his gaffe in the […]

Things got off to a really bad start. But it was only up from there.
Down 3-1 in the second period, the Penguins used their ridicious powerplay to climb back in the game,and the Devils were left stunned.
11:15 left in the second period and the Devils get called for too many men on the ice. Evgeni Malkin scores to make it 3-2. The Hornqvist scores to make it 3-3.
Welcome to HotTake Tuesday, yinz! Today we’ll be covering some topics in the beginning of the post and get to your questions in the latter half. So grab a nice hot cup of coffee, sit back, dig in, and enjoy this week’s serving of HotTakes.

Those of you who followed us last year might remember our "FAMOUS MOVIE MONSTERS STARRING THE PENS!" post. If not, take a look here. This year, we decided not to limit our ideas to classic "creature features" and explore some horror movies that were filmed since color has been added to "picture boxes".Take a Halloween stroll with us as we re-imagine...
Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Olli Matta will undergo surgery to have a tumor removed, the team announce Monday.
According to the Penguins, Maatta’s tumor could be low-grade thyroid cancer. However, according to team physician Dr. Dharmesh Vyas, the Penguins’ medical staff is confident the 20-year-old Maatta can make a full recovery.
“Olli will have surgery to remove the...
Everybody loves a scapegoat. This season, the early favorite to play that role is one Craig Adams. And why not?Craig Adams will not score 10 goals. He's only done that once in his career, in the 2005-06 season which he spent in Carolina. Nor will he put up 25 points. He's never done that.But this is Pittsburgh. And putting up points is the only way fans measure the worth...
A tribute to Canada was shown by the Pittsburgh Penguins as they played “O Canada” before their game Wednesday night as they took on the Philadelphia Flyers. The Penguins did this as a Canadian soldier was killed during an attack in Ottawa in the morning hours Wednesday. The crowd sung the Canadian national anthem as the tribute was shown on both the scoreboard and on the ice...
The Pittsburgh Penguins decided to add “O Canada” before their game against the Philadelphia Flyers following the horrible tragedy on Parliament Hill. While that gesture would have been nice enough, the Penguins took things a step further and transformed their arena into one giant “We Love Canada” display. Great move by the Penguins organization.
A little over a month ago, Marc-Andre Fleury was asked about his future plans and responded by stating that he would prefer to end his career in Pittsburgh. A free agent at season’s end, Fleury reiterated his love for the city, fans, team, and coaching staff. Marc-Andre Fleury said all the things you’d expect Marc-Andre Fleury to say.

The Wilkes- Barre Scranton Penguins, AHL affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins, rained on the St. John’s IceCaps, AHL affiliate of the Winnipeg Jets, parade as they defeated them in a 2-1 OT triumph during the home opener on at Mile One Centre on Friday. Reid McNeill scored the overtime winner for the Penguins, and snapped them out of a two game losing streak.

Sidney Crosby, arguably the best hockey player in the world, plays for the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins and their fans don’t like the Philadelphia Flyers, and the feeling is quite mutual. Flyers fans have a particularly strong hatred for Crosby. With that in mind, do you think Sid the Kid dressing as Rocky Balboa for...Read More
Halloween is always a good time to catch your favorite athletes dressed as semi-boring costumes, unless they drift into the racist end of the pool (looking at you, Raffi Torres). Or if you’re Sidney Crosby, you use your costume to possibly troll your arch enemy. Check out the picture below, from the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Halloween party this weekend:

The 2014 NHL season came in with a roar for the Pittsburgh Penguins, who erupted for six goals in their home opener against the Anaheim Ducks.
The win was the Pens fourth straight in a season opener, and while it was an entertaining game, there’s no denying just how different it was compared to what Penguins fans are used to seeing.
A new system and some new faces were on display...

The Penguins have a ton of new faces to go with a faster, more skill-oriented system under new head coach Mike Johnston, but many are wondering just how the lineup will shake out come game day.
More specifically, what...
