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

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...

Penguins vs. Devils Recap: Crosby's last minute goal, Letang's shootout goal helps Pens win

The Pittsburgh Penguins snatch a (shootout) victory out of the jaws of defeat with Sidney Crosby tying the game with just 14 seconds left and then Kris Letang scoring the game's only shootout goal. The Pens beat the Devils 4-3. Pregame Somewhat of a surprise with Steve Oleksy making his Pittsburgh debut and Brian Dumoulin a scratch on the night. Dumo played a personal low of 14 minutes last game. Lines were pretty crazy too, with Matt Cullen getting jumped up to Crosby's line, HBK reuniting and Cole-Schultz breaking up for the first time this season. Anything to try and find a spark,...

Morning Skate Memo: Dumo-Letang breakup bound to happen

The Penguins cancelled their morning skate in New York on Wednesday, so we’ll wait until 5 p.m. to find out about injury updates and lineup revelations. Judging by Tuesday’s defensive pairings at practice on Tuesday, one development likely to unfold tonight is the reunion of Kris Letang and Olli Maatta. The Norris-worthy portion of Letang’s […]

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...
