2015 NHL All-Star Game Open Thread

Let's go Team Toews! Here we are my friends. Although it appears that more "stars" have been left out and dropped out of this game (due to injury) than we can remember in recent history, tonight is still a date that almost every hockey fan circles on their calendar; it's the All-Star Game. There will be no Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Sergei Bobrovsky, and a few other guys that we were all looking forward to seeing, but that doesn't mean that star power will be found wanting. There are, of course, a few guys that are here as the representatives of their NHL clubs (looking at you Justin...

Dallas Stars Daily Links: All-Star Game Less than Stellar without Crosby, Malkin

Because if there's one thing more exciting than exhibition games, it's meaningless games without the best players there. Also, a look back at the Wizard's photobombs, and Derian Hatcher finally gets a hockey team again. Just when you had finally convinced yourself that maybe you would flip on the old boob tube to catch a few glimpses of tiny nets and halfhearted stickhandling, disaster went and reared its stupid head. From The Hockey News: Early Thursday afternoon, the Pittsburgh Penguins announced superstar center Evgeni Malkin would not participate in the 2015 NHL all-star game in...

Wilderness Walk: How deep does the rabbit hole go?

The downward spiral continues as the Penguins beat the Wild handily by a score of 7-2.  The Wild once again came out with a jump, but a simple defensive breakdown led to the Wild being down a goal in the first period.  In a twist, the Wild offered sustained pressure and generated offense throughout the first two periods until the wheels really fell off following a failed power play to open the third.  In a game that neither Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin scored a goal (both had assists), the Wild allowed goals on bad rebounds, from the blue line, and just five seconds into a Charlie...

Evgeni Malkin: first half MVP of the NHL

NHL.com says that Evgeni Malkin is the league's MVP over the first half of the season, and who are we to argue? Halfway through the season Evgeni Malkin is powering the Pittsburgh Penguins. So far Malkin is third in the league in points with 47 (19 goals, 27 assists), leading the team, by far, in goals and also points. The more impressive number might be 41, as in games played, which matches the number the team has had. Despite not playing at all in training camp, Malkin's jumped right in, and he's been sensational. NHL.com has noticed and has declared Malkin to be the front-runner of the...

Pens Points: Is Bennet On His Line Wasting Malkin?

Your daily look at Pittsburgh Penguins and NHL news and stories. Good morning one and all, We spent the past two days discussing Beau Bennett's top 6 skill and whether it's worth letting it shine where it belongs or using it to accentuate depth in the bottom 6. Ah, but Rob Rossi is here to explain that using Beau as his winger is tantamount to wasting the 2014-15 new and improved Evgeni Malkin. [Trib] Penguins rookie Bryan Rust sees many good points and one bad one to playing alongside Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin or both. [PPG] The Penguins are back to the three-center model. The next...

Evgeni Malkin and Beau Bennett are a strong duo

A look at why the Pittsburgh Penguins should keep Beau Bennett playing on Evgeni Malkin's line Even with last week's acquisition of skilled winger David Perron, the Pittsburgh Penguins still have a deficiency- they're down a true "top 6" forward. Add Perron to the mix that will feature Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Chris Kunitz and Patric Hornqvist and that's only 5 names to fill 6 spots. Which is why the refreshingly transparent Penguins general manager, Jim Rutherford, had said that he wanted to acquire a forward even before Pascal Dupuis was lost for the season with a blood clot in his...

Penguins / Bruins Recap: Pens lose on questionable OT goal

Evgeni Malkin looked strong scoring 2 points but the Pittsburgh Penguins fall in OT to the Boston Bruins Hockey doesn't always offer a fair result. The Pittsburgh Penguins put 39 shots on Tuukka Rask tonight. Several more they rang off posts. What's it with the posts always being unkind for the Pens against the Boston Bruins, anyways? Mostly because Boston finds a way to always hang in the games. And no more so than their captain Zdeno Chara. The 37-year old has looked his age this season, and did early tonight when Evgeni Malkin teamed up with Beau Bennett for the first goal of the game....
