From the Branches: Phil Kessel is angry and it makes Chris Kunitz laugh

From the Branches: Phil Kessel is angry and it makes Chris Kunitz laugh

Penguins tie the ECF at one game a piece. Last night during game two of the Eastern Conference Final, Phil Kessel sat at one end of the Penguins bench and Evgeni Malkin sat at the other. They yelled at each other from across the bench and poor Chris Kunitz was caught in the middle. Wait, did I say poor Kunitz? I meant amused, he was amused: Anyway, Phil was barking. Was it, “We’ve got to move the effing puck?” It looked like it might have been that. “It could be,” said Kunitz, grinning. That might make sense, right? The Penguins dominated all night. They erased Ottawa’s 1-3-1...

Penguins look to shake up lines for Game 6

Penguins look to shake up lines for Game 6

The Pittsburgh Penguins might have a different look for Game 6 than other games in the series The Pittsburgh Penguins, believe it or not, have had a fairly steady amount of health during the NHL playoffs. Through the first 10 games of the playoffs, the team has gotten a few players back to injury (Chris Kunitz and Carl Hagelin). they haven't suffered any games missed to injury - aside of course from Game 4 where Sidney Crosby and Conor Sheary missed that game with concussions, with both returning for Game 5. That string might come to an end tonight. Trevor Daley has been banged up, not...

Bah God...That’s Nick Bonino’s Music. Pens win Game One 3-2. Lead Series 1-0.

Bah God...That’s Nick Bonino’s Music. Pens win Game One 3-2. Lead Series 1-0.

Crosby scores twice and Fleury stands on his head to give Pens victory in Game 1. Bonino continues to haunt the Capitals with another game winning goal. Game 2 set for Saturday night. Pregame Line up for the Penguins remained mostly the same from Round 1. Only change was Chris Kunitz returning from injury and replacing Carter Rowney on the fourth line. Carl Hagelin was a full participant in the morning skate but remained out. No surprise in goal with Fleury getting the start. Let's play some hockey. #WSHvsPIT pic.twitter.com/sie70plaKC— Pittsburgh Penguins (@penguins) April 27,...

Kunitz is in for Penguins vs. Capitals in Game 1

Pittsburgh Penguins injury update: Carl Hagelin, Matt Murray, Chris Kunitz

Updates on the statuses of several injured Pittsburgh Penguins players This Mike Sullivan said Monday that he is "hopeful" that injured forward Carl Hagelin could return at some point for the second round series against the Washington Capitals. "He’s getting closer, he skated today [before practice]. He skated yesterday on his own. He’s making progress. We’re hopeful we’re going to get him soon. It’s one of those injuries that’s going to be a day-to-day thing. I can’t say for sure, but certainly we’re hopeful." That could be empty playoff gamesmanship, or it could be...
