Penguins Top Senators 8-5 in Emotional Game

Penguins Top Senators 8-5 in Emotional Game

A total of 13 goals, a ton of penalties and a bit of controversy made for quite the entertaining game in Pittsburgh. After a rather painless October an unchallenging November, the Senators began the first of many testing matchups in the month of December. Deathcember, if you will, had begun. And what better way to start the scariest stretch of hockey of the season, but with the reigning Stanley Cup Champions? Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Chris Kunitz, Phil Kessel, Kris Letang; the list of top tier players on the Pittsburgh Penguins is nearly endless. And while stars are plentiful in their...

Pens/Sens Recap: Goals a plenty, Pittsburgh shows out in win

Pens/Sens Recap: Goals a plenty, Pittsburgh shows out in win

In a wild, high-scoring affair the Pittsburgh Penguins score 4 goals in the second period (including two 24 seconds apart) to beat the Ottawa Senators and a hat trick by Bryan Rust in the 8-5 win. 1st period Early in, Kris Letang holds the blueline and passes down to Evgeni Malkin. Malkin makes an unreal play with vision and touch to lay the puck right into space for Bryan Rust to catch up to. Rust snaps a shot past Craig Anderson 5-hole to put the Penguins on the board. 71 → 17 → pic.twitter.com/ISowilLx2E — Pittsburgh Penguins (@penguins) December 6, 2016 The Senators strike...

Evgeni Malkin’s dad met up with Max Talbot after one of his games in Russia

How sweet is that? Max Talbot has played for a lot of different NHL teams, but it’ll most likely be his time with the Pittsburgh Penguins - the team that drafted him and the team he played the most games for - that’ll be best remembered. I mean, when you score two goals in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, you build up a certain amount of memorability. And who assisted on one of those goals? None other than Evgeni Malkin. While Talbot’s NHL career appears to be over, Malkin’s is still going strong, but that doesn’t mean the two wouldn’t keep up with each other... or each...

Pens/Rangers recap: 5 goal 2nd period boosts Pittsburgh

The Pittsburgh Penguins open up a can in the 2nd period with 5 goals and carry the day over the New York Rangers. 1st period Stop me if you've heard this before; Evgeni Malkin takes a pretty needless, reckless penalty and it comes back to haunt the Penguins. Rick Nash scores on the ensuing power play to make it 1-0 for the Rangers. #Nashty pic.twitter.com/YykTppNbvl — New York Rangers (@NYRangers) November 24, 2016 Pittsburgh leads shots 10-7 on the period, but behind where it counts 1-0. Not too much else exciting except for Ryan McDonaugh hitting Conor Sheary from behind then...

Breaking down Jake Guentzel’s first career NHL goal

Starting your career in the NHL with a goal on your first shot and first shift is pretty good, in my opinion. Sometimes, in sports, there are moments that happen that really just make us shake our heads and say “Did that actually just happen?” One of these moments happened last night in Jake Guentzel’s NHL debut with the Penguins. After being called up from WBS in the morning, he was set to play on a line with Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel. Not a bad place to start and go from there, right? @Penguins Jake Guentzel’s 1st NHL goal shatters mark for fastest goal in debut. Here’s a...

Breaking down the Islanders defensive breakdown on Kris Letang’s game-winning goal

Last night in Brooklyn, the Pens came away victorious in overtime thanks to Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang Normally, when I write these type of breakdown pieces, I start things off with a mini-recap of what went on in the sequence I’m going to break down. Before I get into doing that, I would just like to say how blessed we are to be able to watch the Penguins put a 3-on-3 unit on the ice that consists of Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and Kris Letang. That’s kind of silly, to be honest. There is not much to be surprised about when you learn that Crosby stepped on the ice in overtime...

Quick Strikes: Life without Stamkos ... again

Well, isn’t this a bit familiar. The Bolts By now you surely know that Steven Stamkos is out indefinitely. [Raw Charge] A deeper look into the injury. [Tampa Bay Times] The Lightning can manage Stamkos’ absence. [The Score] Ben Bishop needs to stand tall amid trade rumors. Shouldn’t be so hard, right? He is 6-foot-7 after all. [BoltsJolts] But don’t bet on a trade happening any time soon. [SBNation] The League Nicklas Backstrom had a five-point night as the Capitals embarrassed the Penguins 7-1. The four ways that Evgeni Malkin had a terrible night. [RMNB] This happened before that...

Pens Points: On Another Level

Pens get back in the win column with dominating win over young Maple Leafs After a letdown on Thursday night, the Penguins responded with a dominating 4-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night at PPG Paints Arena. Toronto struck early but once the Pens settled in they began to overwhelm the young Maple Leafs. Goals from Evgeni Malkin, Chris Kunitz, Bryan Rust, and Sidney Crosby led the way as they Pens peppered Frederik Andersen all evening. Matt Murray started in goal and made some ten bell saves to keep Toronto off the board after their opening goal. [Pensburgh] With 2016...
