Sidney Crosby was part of an effort to connect hockey with Kenya, thanks to Tim Horton’s

The Penguins superstar is well documented for being a great guy, but this is something else. We’ve seen all the videos and read all the stories about the kind of person that Sidney Crosby is, in addition to the type of player he is on the ice. Today, we see a story that brings those two worlds together. Together with Tim Hortons, Sidney Crosby and Nathan McKinnon (who have done work with the company before) surprised some hockey players from Kenya. Kenya’s only hockey team had nobody to play. So, we brought them to Canada for a game. And, we surprised them with a couple of new...

Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon surprise Kenya hockey team

Hockey is slowly, but steadily, becoming a global sport. Recently, the NHL has seen Germany produce several players, including Leon Draisaitl of the Edmonton Oilers and Stanley Cup champion […] Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon surprise Kenya hockey team - Puck Prose - Puck Prose - NHL

Pittsburgh Penguins: Justin Schultz could be out for a while

After getting taken down awkwardly, Justin Schultz left the game and it appears that he could be out for a long time. Last night, the Pittsburgh Penguins visited the Montreal Canadiens in what should have been a relatively easy game. Instead, it was a back and forth game that ended with a shootout victory for […] Pittsburgh Penguins: Justin Schultz could be out for a while - Puck Prose - Puck Prose - NHL

Penguins’ Unique School of Defense

The Pittsburgh Penguins are excellent at rehabilitating defensemen. But it’s also rare to see them praised for their defense: especially coming off a 7-6 overtime win against the Washington Capitals, an opener that felt like an early 90’s time warp. Even Sidney Crosby couldn’t contain his excitement when he referred to “old time hockey” in a […] The post Penguins’ Unique School of Defense appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Top 3 All-Time Penguins Goalies

The Pittsburgh Penguins — at least for the past few decades — have been a franchise known for their offense. When an organization is lucky enough to have multiple generational talents like Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin it isn’t surprising to see that portion of the game demand the most attention. However, they’ve […] The post Top 3 All-Time Penguins Goalies appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Five players that can make or break the Penguins’ season

Five players that can make or break the Penguins’ season

When it comes to the 2018-19 Pittsburgh Penguins I am fairly confident about a couple of things. The first is that they are going to make the playoffs. Second is that Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and Phil Kessel are going to be the driving forces behind that because they still are three of the league’s elite players and are going to do what they do ... produce. They are going to carry the offense. They are going to a nightmare for teams to deal with on the power play. They are going to all probably be among the league’s top-15 scorers. This is what we should expect, this is what we...
