Kunitz, Crosby & Dupuis

Let’s do a single-subject blog post today, covering the decision to reunite the line of Chris Kunitz, Sidney Crosby and Pascal Dupuis. WHAT THEY SAID MIKE JOHNSTON: “They’ve played well together before. I thought, in the last couple games, I …

Madden: Dubinsky's suspension trivialized cross check on Crosby

Madden: Dubinsky's suspension trivialized cross check on Crosby

Columbus center Brandon Dubinsky attempted to behead Sidney Crosby with a cross-check this past Friday. It was vicious and deliberate. Dubinsky got a mere one-game suspension. That’s more insulting and trivializing than exonerating Dubinsky, and it’s certainly not a deterrent.…

Blue Jackets notebook: Dubinsky won’t change style of play against Crosby

Recap: Geno Magic Not Enough. Pens Fall 3-2 in SO

Pens fire 41 shots on Nilsson but other than Malkin can't get any goals. Many hockey fans probably circled tonight's game when the schedule came out, as it was going to be Connor McDavid's first visit to Pittsburgh against Sidney Crosby. McDavid is out long-term with a fractured collarbone so we will have to wait until next season to see this matchup. The Oilers and Leon Draisaitl opened the scoring after two minutes of play. Taylor Hall shot a wrister, got the rebound, shot again and the second rebound bounced to Draisaitl, who put it in the open net. During that whole sequence Adam...

From the Branches: Sidney Crosby attacked, Carey Price out a month, Leafs vacation ends

On a November in Columbus it got ugly, when it mattered. Happy Saturday! It was another wild night in the NHL with 24 teams in action. There were highlights, and some definite lowlights. The Leafs are finally back in action tonight, kicking off a grueling stretch of 5 games in 8 days. We will have a preview of tonight's game vs. the Capitals up this afternoon. Crosby - Dubinsky Incident The big story from last night came out of Columbus. Brandon Dubinsky attacked Sidney Crosby in a frighteningly McSorleyesque manner. Crosby left the game after this crosscheck to the neck...

Recap: Columbus Thuggery Rewarded With OT Win

Silver lining: Sidney Crosby escapes serious injury after a dirty hit to the back of the neck by Dubinsky. So the first 30 minutes of this game were honestly pretty boring, although by no means should that absolve the Penguins of playing most of the period and a half in their own end and allowing Fleury to be peppered by shots. In the end they allowed 42 shots on Fleury while managing 26 on the other end. That's not a winning formula. At some point midway through the second period the boring 0-0 game deteriorated to a complete gongshow. It's been a long time, nearly 4 hours to be exact,...

Madden: Crosby, Lemieux rumors silly, but Sid's offensive struggles are not

Madden: Crosby, Lemieux rumors silly, but Sid's offensive struggles are not

Sidney Crosby’s production is off, and there has to be a reason. For some, it doesn’t have to be a good reason, or a true reason. Any reason will do.

Blues At Penguins GameDay Storystream: Great Day For A Win

The Blues haven't lost in Pittsburgh since the days of the Igloo. Forget about HotdogGate. Phil Kessel has been having a hell of a season for the Pittsburgh Penguins even if the rest of the team seems to have stagnated. The Pens are 12-8-0 with a surprising -2 goal differential, considering the team sports Kessel, Sidney Crosby, and Evgeny Malkin. They sit third in the Metro Division, and have been having struggles so far this season with consistency and scoring. When Nick Bonino has as many goals as Crosby through twenty games (three), there may be an issue. The Blues are coming off of a...

Optional blog post

The Penguins had an optional skate today in Cranberry. There were 12 players on the ice. I can list them if you’d like. Pascal Dupuis, Sidney Crosby, Chris Kunitz, Beau Bennett, Sergei Plotnikov, Daniel Sprong, Brian Dumoulin, Ben Lovejoy, Ian …

Sid the Kid is Still the Game's Best

The spirit of "Sid the Kid' was back on Thursday night against Colorado. This week, I just happened to receive a free copy of Sports Illustrated's "Hockey's Greatest" on the top ten players at each position and various other lists. You can read more on my thoughts about the book at the end of this article. While reading this, it got me thinking... where does Crosby fit among the game's greatest of all-time, where is he currently, and can he do anything to change those rankings. Life as Sidney Crosby is probably pretty nice considering where you and I sit at the table but once you get tagged...

Recap: Avs Lose to Flightless Birds

Avs forget how to hockey for 2:08. The Hockey Gods punish them. This was a frustrating game. There were stretches in which the Avalanche played well, and the top line dominated the Penguins. However, the Avs let a few bad breaks get into their heads, and they couldn't them back into the game until it was too late. 1st Period It was noticeable the entire period when the Dutchy-MacK-Landy line was on the ice. They dominated for significant stretches. The rest of the team, not so much. McLeod got into a kerfuffle with Sidney Crosby, who did not fight his own battle, opting to allow Patrick...
