Sid, Geno, Phil: Who ya got as most likely to win the scoring title in 2019?

Sid, Geno, Phil: Who ya got as most likely to win the scoring title in 2019?

If one of the Penguins “big three” were to win the scoring title in 2018-19, which one would it be? In 2017-18 the Pittsburgh Penguins were the only team to place three teammates in the top-10 of scoring. Evgeni Malkin paced the team with 98 points (42 goals + 56 assists) for 4th in the league, Phil Kessel was behind him in 8th with 92 points (34g+52a) and Sidney Crosby ranked 10th with 89 points (29g+60a). Last season saw Edmonton’s Connor McDavid win his second scoring title in as many years (108 points in 2017-18; 41g+67a) so the 21-year old has to be considered the odds-on...

Penguins captain Sidney Crosby turns 31 years old today, so what better way to celebrate than look back on some of his biggest accomplishments and best highlights.

Just watching the cross-unders and him...

Penguins Blessed With Great Players, Better People

Remembering the 1987 Canada Cup

Remembering the 1987 Canada Cup

International hockey has a way of bringing hockey fans in. Every fan can think of a moment when they saw their national team do something incredible. The Miracle on Ice, Peter Forsberg's shootout goal at the 1994 Olympics, or Sidney Crosby's golden goal at the 2010 Olympics. These moments will never leave their minds. While the Olympics had (until 2018) become the place to see the premier best on best hockey tournament, there was something before. The Canada Cup, which went from 1976-1991, was the premier best on best hockey tournament. It had great moments and incredible games. The 1987...

Thirteen Years Later: Reflections on the Sabres’ 2005 Draft

Thirteen Years Later: Reflections on the Sabres’ 2005 Draft

Draft picks didn’t pan out too well for Sabres Thirteen years ago today, the NHL held its 2005 NHL Entry Draft. The two-day draft was held in Ottawa, with the draft order determined by lottery (thanks to that pesky lockout). This was the first year the draft had only seven rounds compared to nine, and the lottery saw teams assigned balls based on playoff appearances & first-overall picks from the three years prior. Of course, the Pittsburgh Penguins picked up Sidney Crosby with the first-overall selection, which has been an historic moment for their franchise, perhaps akin to how...

New highlight video showcases Crosby’s stellar defensive awareness

We switched gears on regular Crosby coverage to offer a ton of praise for his dedication to detail away from the puck. It’s always a treat to watch Sidney Crosby play hockey. Here’s a new highlight reel from user xxlaflammexx about the defensive side of Crosby. Fans can easily search their memories that feature an archive of all the crazy goals and pinpoint passes he’s amassed over his 13-year long (and counting!) career. But away from the puck, Crosby’s defensive highlights are full of spectacular precision and technique. Feast your eyes on 10-plus minutes of perfectly-timed stick...

Combing through last season’s surprises and duds for the Penguins

Combing through last season’s surprises and duds for the Penguins

Looking back on our predictions of what the surprises in 2017-18 would be. Last off-season we asked what the surprise player for 2017-18 would be (in a pleasant way). Here were the results, (gulp). Well some of that sure didn’t work out! With the benefit of knowing what happened, I think it’s fair to say the (positive) surprises were (in no particular order): Health in general (Sidney Crosby and Olli Maatta playing all 82 games, Kris Letang getting 79, Evgeni Malkin playing 78) Phil Kessel setting a career high in assists (58) and points (92) despite being older than...

A highlight reel of some of Sidney Crosby’s most fun goals With the Pittsburgh Pirates on a four game winning steak to enter the All-Star game (woot woot) what better way to celebrate the mid-summer classic than by going back and looking at some baseball style goals by Sidney Crosby? Related: thankfully it’s “mid-summer” now which means you can almost hear ruts being cut into a fresh sheet of ice and whistles blowing for the start of NHL training camp. That’s a fun trip down memory lane. Those goals are just so ridiculously coordinated, the first time maybe it’s a fluke. The...
