Identifying areas where the Rangers are scuffling the most

It was Henrik Lundqvist who talked about “hockey luck” not going his or his team’s way in the aftermath of a 5-4 overtime defeat Tuesday to the Penguins in which Sidney Crosby tied the score with less than a minute remaining in regulation by banking one in off the goaltender from well behind the net....

Rangers Vs Penguins: Not Good Enough

Rangers Vs Penguins: Not Good Enough

These two things about Henrik Lundqvist can exist at the same time. 1) He should have 100% hugged the post and kept out Sidney Crosby’s (still lucky) game-tying goal. 2) He was an animal in the game overall, and without him the Rangers would have lost by six or so. These two things can also exist at the same time. 1) That was the best game the Rangers have played this year (in stretches), and showed what they can look like when they get their crap together. 2) They had no business winning that game, thanks to a rancid first period that forced Lundqvist to play the superhero role.

Penguins rally, then top Rangers in OT

Recap: Hoooooold. Pens hang on for 4-3 win over Florida Panthers

The Penguins win Saturday night on the back of 2 Sidney Crosby goals and 43 Matt Murray saves The Pittsburgh Penguins got to a lead on Saturday night and then clung to it for dear life, and when the clock expired it was finally safe as they defeated the Florida Panthers 4-3. Highlights Sidney Crosby opened the scoring in the first period with his second goal of the season. Nice job to lose himself (right in front of the net) and Phil Kessel did well to fire a hard shot/pass right along the ice that Sid was able to deflect over the pad of goaltender James Reimer. Top notch skill here, but of...

Sloppy Panthers fall 4-3 to Penguins

Huberdeau’s pair not enough for Cats Sidney Crosby scored two goals and Matt Murray made 43 saves to send the Florida Panthers to a 4-3 defeat at PPG Paints Arena, snapping the Cats modest two-game winning streak. Crosby, left alone at the back post, came up with only goal of the first period when he one-timed Phil Kessel’s shot past James Reimer at the 6:46 mark. Kris Letang drew the secondary assist on the power-play marker that came with rookie Ian McCoshen in the penalty box due to an iffy slashing call. After keeping up near constant pressure on the Penguins’ net, the Panthers...

Sidney Crosby Should Hear From Department of Player Safety After Braden Holtby Hit

Sidney Crosby Should Hear From Department of Player Safety After Braden Holtby Hit

The Pittsburgh Penguins’ captain executed a hit that the Dallas Stars are familiar with. Sidney Crosby is the face of the NHL. He’s often the player featured in league advertising, his team is often featured on nationally televised games, and he’s one of the most elite hockey players in the game today. He should also be getting a call from the Department of Player Safety. Last night, when the Pittsburgh Penguins were on their way to a win over the Washington Capitals, Crosby came skating in and hit goaltender Braden Holtby as he handled the puck in the trapezoid behind the net. If...
