Better Know A Penguin: Sidney Crosby

Alright, so I know just about nobody on this planet needs to get to know Sidney Crosby. He's everywhere in large part because the NHL doesn't really know what it's doing when it comes to marketing star players and, okay, mostly because he's incredibly talented. (Stupid) debates about his leadership and character aside, Crosby is an absolutely phenomenal player and will be a handful for the Sharks defenders. Name: Sidney Crosby Number/Position: #87 / Center Born: August 7, 1987 Birthplace: Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia Height: 5'11" Weight: 200 Shoots: Left Drafted: First round (First overall)...

Sharks vs. Penguins: It wasn't going to be easy

We know who San Jose plays in the first round, and it's a doozy. Patrick Marleau, Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton didn't care about their opponent but I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a preference. So yeah, the Sharks first time in a Stanley Cup Final coming against Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin isn't exactly what I had in mind. That doesn't mean the Sharks can't win, obviously, but it'll be plenty difficult against a very, very good Penguins team. So here we are. The Sharks reach the Stanley Cup FInal for the first time and take on the Pittsburgh Penguins, starting at Consol Energy...

Breaking down Bryan Rust's two goals that sent the Penguins back to the Stanley Cup Final

The Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning last night in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final and punched their ticket for a chance to play for the Stanley Cup. Bryan Rust was the hero we needed. It's Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final and you're looking for a player to be a hero for your team. Will it be Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Phil Kessel, or Kris Letang? More often than not, you'd be willing to throw money down that one of those guys is going to come up big. Last night, it was Bryan Rust. Rust, who was drafted by the Penguins in 2010 in the 3rd round, had spent...

Pens Points: ECF Game 7

Let's play our best hockey of the season. Good morning one and all, The Pens are back in Pittsburgh, where they will play the Lightning for the 10th time this season, this time for the right to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals. It's quite a turnaround if you go back and think of that dud of a 4-0 loss in New Jersey when things looked very bleak. [PPG] This is kind of funny to imagine, because he's only 28, but a third of the Pens roster was in high school idolizing Sidney Crosby when he was in his first two Cup finals, and now they are teammates trying to get back there together....

Blues At Sharks Game Six Storystream: Return To Elliott In Net

Brian Elliott will be back between the pipes for game six. Will his return inspire the Blues to play a full game? Last night, in Tampa Bay, the Pittsburgh Penguins staved off elimination in a very big way. Their 5-2 win over the Lightning was more than a series extender, it was an exclamation point in which their top producers produced. Sidney Crosby had a goal and an assist. Evgeny Malkin had an assist. Phil "American Hero" Kessel potted the first goal of the game. Nick Bonino had a goal and an assist. The series returns to Pittsburgh on Friday night. Will we be typing something similar...

Dissecting Sidney Crosby's Game-Winning Goal from Game 6

Sidney Crosby scored late in the 3rd period to take the Penguins lead to 3-0. It was a beauty. Sidney Crosby has scored the game-winning goal for the Penguins in all three wins in the Eastern Conference Final. His goal last night was a memorable one, and it was Peak Sidney Crosby. Let's take a look at what went wrong for the Tampa Bay Lightning here: It all started with a Tampa Bay attempt to exit their zone that Pittsburgh prevented well. Nikita Kucherov had the puck and looked to stretch the play to Tyler Johnson. As Tyler Johnson came up the middle of the ice,...
