LOS ANGELES (AP) Until Pittsburgh goalie Casey DeSmith got the start at Staples Center on Thursday night, his entire NHL experience consisted of two relief appearances in Penguins losses.
The Pittsburgh Penguins annual jaunt up the west coast didn’t start according to plan on Wednesday. The Pens dropped a 5-3 decision to the Anaheim Ducks and had to quickly rest and recover for a date with the Los Angeles Kings 24 hours later. The odds weren’t favoring them, but the two-time defending Stanley Cup […]
Matt Murray's big save on Mike Hoffman in the first period Thursday night might have been the turning point for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Hoffman had a rebound and an open net to the right of Murray, but the Pittsburgh goalie dove across to knock a shot off the goal line with his glove. The play […]
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.
Buffalo Sabres defenseman Marco Scandella has been fined $5,000 for slashing Pittsburgh Penguins forward Patric Hornqvist, the NHL Department of Player Safety announced Wednesday.

Scandella received a two-minute minor for slashing, while Hornqvist also received a minor for interference on Scandella on the […]

The Pittsburgh Penguins have had a rough start to the 2017-18 season (probably an understatement, actually) as they head into Saturday night’s Stanley Cup Final rematch with the Nashville Predators. “The first step was to get back on the ice with the players,” Hornqvist said via the Penguins’ website. Hornqvist was the Game 6 hero […]
Patric Hornqvist, the hero for the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final, may have to miss the season (and home) opener versus the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday.

Three-year-old Isabella Hornqvist grabbed a Pittsburgh Penguins playoff flag from the ice, turned it upside down, and began stick-handling a half-empty Gatorade bottle on the ice. Which made his series-winning goal in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final on Sunday night rather surreal for him, as he banked the puck off his former teammate […]
