Crosby & Malkin Set New Mark in Raleigh

Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin prove repeatedly that they are the Pittsburgh Penguins’ top players. They are currently and often one and two in the team’s player statistics. Crosby leads the team with 66 points and Malkin is second with 60. They are truly a dynamic duo. Crosby & Malkin Raising (or Lowering) the Bar […]

Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin score, Pittsburgh Penguins win

They have a 69-4-1 record when that happens. Nice. Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are two of the very best players in the world today. That much is hard to deny, especially when they both have 60 points this season - Crosby sitting second in league scoring with 66 (and first with 33 goals), Malkin tied for sixth with 60, and both having played fewer games than everybody else. (They’re first and third in points per game this year: 1.25 for Crosby, and 1.15 for Malkin.) And even though the two of them were a little penalty-happy against the Carolina Hurricanes, they both scored: Crosby the...

Penguins vs. Hurricanes Recap: Top stars take penalties, score goals in Pittsburgh win

Penguins vs. Hurricanes Recap: Top stars take penalties, score goals in Pittsburgh win

Evgeni Malkin skates to the penalty box 3 times. Sidney Crosby goes twice himself. That's bad! But each of the Pens star centers also atone for those mistakes by scoring goals en route to a 3-1 victory on the road against the Carolina Hurricanes. It wasn't pretty but a win is a win Pregame Nick Bonino (sick) misses his first game of the year so Carter Rowney is able to get back in the lineup. Steve Oleksy and Cameron Gaunce continue their shuffle, with it being Oleksy's turn to play. Let's Go Pens! pic.twitter.com/KcentbaaeF — Pittsburgh Penguins (@penguins) February 21, 2017 1st...

Wheeler takes shot

TORONTO — Blake Wheeler has an issue with the NHL's double-standard. Asked Tuesday about a hit to the head he took from Evgeni Malkin in last week’s OT loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins that didn't warrant a suspension compared to Jets defenceman Jacob Trouba earning a two-game...

Behind Enemy Lines: Pittsburgh Penguins cruising toward the postseason

The defending Stanley Cup Champions are in Raleigh for their final visit of the season. The Pittsburgh Penguins enter play tonight on a two game losing streak, but that streak is only a blip on the radar as the Stanley Cup Champions set their sites on defending their crown in the Stanley Cup playoffs come April. The Penguins have used their team speed and skill combined with a league-best 204 goals this season to overwhelm many of their opponents in route to a 36-14-8 record, good for third best in the NHL. Led by their usual top performers, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, the Penguins...

Analyzing the Penguins trading history under Jim Rutherford’s tenure as GM

Analyzing the Penguins trading history under Jim Rutherford’s tenure as GM

Jim Rutherford has been on the job as Penguins GM since the summer of 2014. Let’s take a look at the trades he has made, what was traded away, and analyze his trading history. When Jim Rutherford was hired as General Manager of the Pittsburgh Penguins on June 6th, 2014, he was tasked with rebuilding a very broken Penguins team assembled by Ray Shero. Given the Penguins history of being cap ceiling team in the Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin era, and one that should be contending for the Stanley Cup every year, they didn’t have the time for a long rebuild. His job, essentially, was to...

Evgeni Malkin notches 500 assists

Yet another Penguins milestone reached. The Pittsburgh Penguins have had a pretty massive milestone to focus on as of late, waiting for Sidney Crosby to finally hit 1,000 points in his career. And he did it during Kris Letang’s 600th game! Two milestones. Well, you know about how events and the like come in threes? Evgeni Malkin recorded his 500th assist against the Blue Jackets, and so: another milestone achieved. He’s the fourth Penguin to do it, after Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr, and, of course, Sidney Crosby. Malkin, in 694 games played, has scored 319 goals and 500 assists, for a...

Evgeni Malkin, AKA Stealth Bomber

Evgeni Malkin has four points over his last two games, giving him 58 points on the season. He’s now eight points behind Connor McDavid for the league lead and only six points behind his superstar counterpart, Sidney Crosby. Why isn’t anyone talking about him these days? How has he seemingly gone unnoticed in 2016-17? Malkin has been overshadowed […]
