Players of the Night As discussed here, Riley Nash ranked among the Bruins’ supporting cast members who were marquee stars during Wednesday’s win. He scored two goals and one assist to give Boston five straight wins. The Pittsburgh Penguins continue
Will the real Pittsburgh Penguins please stand up? With inconsistency perhaps the most consistent element of the Penguins' season coming off two straight Stanley Cups, the team talked widely of doing some soul searching during the NHL's holiday break, which for them ends Wednesday night with a visit from the Columbus Blue Jackets at PPG […]
The Pittsburgh Penguins got some holiday shopping done before the NHL’s roster freeze, adding veteran goalie depth in Michael Leighton and an enormous defenseman in Jamie Oleksiak. Such trades should help from a depth perspective, yet you don’t get the feeling that those moves – nor the addition of Riley Sheahan – are really the […]
The Pittsburgh Penguins just got a little bigger on their backend. The Penguins announced they struck a deal with the Dallas Stars on Tuesday afternoon, acquiring 6-foo-7 defenseman Jamie Oleksiak for a conditional fourth-round pick in 2019. The trade comes on the heels of the Penguins making an odd move earlier in the day after acquiring […]
Looking at the big picture, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Arizona Coyotes couldn't be more dissimilar. The Penguins are coming off consecutive Stanley Cup wins. The Coyotes only infrequently win consecutive games.
Marc-Andre Fleury has been thinking about one game for quite a while. Fleury stopped 24 shots against his former team and Jon Merrill's first goal of the season snapped a third-period tie as the Vegas Golden Knights beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1. James Neal scored his 15th goal of the season for Vegas, while Ian […]
The Pittsburgh Penguins are in need of a spark, and general manager Jim Rutherford seems to know it. It is a bold statement from the general manager of a team that has won the past two Stanley Cups, but nearly halfway through the season it is becoming increasingly clear that this team is lacking … […]
Fossils from New Zealand have revealed a giant penguin that was the size of a grown man. In fact, it was about as big as the captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins. The creature was about 5 feet, 10 inches (1.77 meters) long when swimming, just shy of the official height listing for hockey star Sidney […]
It will be nine days between his start against the Predators and his Black Friday win against the Pittsburgh Penguins, and presumably Khudobin has cooled off a little bit after ripping off four wins in a row. It's really not even much in the way of hyperbole to say Khudobin's 7-0-2 beginning to the year […]
Wins have been hard enough to come by for the Buffalo Sabres as of late. Things won't get any easier this weekend with a series of back-to-back games against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The first part of that home-and-home series will take place in Buffalo on Friday night before heading to Pittsburgh on Saturday night.
Throughout the summer and the season, it has been assumed by many that the Caps hold a rather large trade chip in goalie Philipp Grubauer. Washington has a Vezina-caliber starter in Braden Holtby who, at 28, is still in his prime. The team also has a future starter in Ilya Samsonov who is considered one […]
Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Matt Murray is out indefinitely with a lower-body injury. Coach Mike Sullivan said Tuesday that Murray is "week to week" after the 23-year-old left Monday night's 5-4 overtime win over Philadelphia in the second period following a collision with Flyers forward Jakub Voracek. Murray was on the ice for several minutes before […]
