It was hard to imagine this could have been possible a couple of weeks ago when injuries were ripping through the roster amid a very challenging stretch of hockey, but the Bruins have managed to survive and thrive within the adversity. With several regulars still missing from the fold including leading scorer Brad Marchand, the […]
Give Bruins rookie Jake DeBrusk credit. The 21-year-old rookie said that he didn't want to go through the experience of being a healthy scratch again, and he has played like it ever since. DeBrusk finished with a pair of assists in the Bruins 4-3 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins, and is now riding a four-game point […]
If you are looking for a break from your Black Friday shopping or your relatives in town for the holidays we have something that should work nicely: Some afternoon hockey as the Pittsburgh Penguins visit the Boston Bruins. The Bruins enter the game
Vancouver Cancuks rookie Brock Boeser is enjoying a fast start to his career, while embattled defenseman Derrick Pouliot is just happy to have a change of scenery. Boeser scored two more goals and Pouliot netted the game-winner against his former team as the Canucks defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-2 on Wednesday night. ''There's a lot […]
Chicago recorded 27 shot attempts (11 on goal) in the opening frame compared to Pittsburgh's 13 attempts (nine on goal), and led in the even-strength scoring chances department 11-2. Two of those chances were breakaways from Nick Schmaltz and Jonathan Toews, but both were denied by Matt Murray. The Blackhawks cashed in on one of […]
It was an adventurous night for Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford. Crawford's strong play allowed Artem Anisimov's third-period power-play goal to stand as the game-winner, and the Blackhawks continued their winning streak against the Pittsburgh Penguins with a 2-1 victory on Saturday night. ''I like the response out there,'' Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said.
When the Chicago Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins last met, it was a laugher. The Blackhawks figure the Penguins will have that 10-1 loss at Chicago on their minds when the teams play Saturday night at PPG Paints Arena. "We've been on the wrong side of losses like that, and we certainly remember them more than […]
Being a quarter of the way through the season and “only” being on pace for 94 or 95 points, and having solid if unspectacular underlying numbers is something most teams would love to shoot for, but this is the Mike Sullivan Penguins.
The goals came in bunches for the Blackhawks in their Oct. 5 season opener against the Pittsburgh Penguins. For the Blackhawks, it was a nice memory, albeit one that seems far away given they went from scoring at will through their first two games to not being able to buy a goal for a sizeable […]
The NHL is cracking down on slashing with more penalties – at times to almost an extreme – but suspensions might not come from them. To be precise, Scandella received a $5K fine, while the league didn’t provide an explanation for the decision.
Sidney Crosby had been getting his chances. Crosby ended a long goal drought and assisted on Conor Sheary's game-winner 16 seconds into overtime as the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Sabres 5-4 on Tuesday night. ''You're happy to see it go in the net,'' Crosby said.
Update: The Penguins ended up winning 5-4 in overtime. The Buffalo Sabres aren’t making the strides they were hoping for this season, but don’t blame Jack Eichel. At least, don’t bury Eichel for a lack of scoring or a lack of emotion.
