Trending Penguins Players: Sidney Crosby is rolling

Photo by Justin K. Aller/NHLI via Sidney Crosby has had quite the week for the Pittsburgh Penguins and he leads this week’s Trending Penguins Players. The Pittsburgh Penguins are now officially into the second half of their 2021-22 NHL schedule and if you are a fan of the team you have to be pretty happy with things so far. They are in a position where the top spot in the Metropolitan Division is very much there for the taking, Evgeni Malkin is back in the lineup, Kris Letang is still playing at an absurdly high level as a top overall defenseman, Tristan Jarry has...

PensBurgh Podcast: Analyzing the Zucker injury and Carter contract extension

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports We have quite a bit of news to discuss on this week’s episode of the PensBurgh Podcast. In negative news, the Pittsburgh Penguins continue to anger the Hockey Gods, as the team has lost another player to injury. Jason Zucker will be out for an undetermined amount of time to recover from core muscle surgery. Robbie and I throw our guesses into the ring to see who should slot alongside Evgeni Malkin for the foreseeable future. Will it be Danton Heinen? Evan Rodrigues? Jeff Carter? And speaking of Jeff Carter, the longtime Los Angeles...

Photo by Matt Cohen/Icon Sportswire via It doesn’t rule to be Drew O’Connor right now Drew O’Connor has been a bit on the fringes of the lineup and roster for a while, he played one game recently on January 2nd and then was added to the COVID list. When O’Connor returned, it was out in California, playing January 13th against Los Angeles and then again on January 15th against San Jose. The Penguins returned from the west coast soon after and announced O’Connor was on the injured reserve with an unspecified injury. Daily Faceoff’s Frank Seravalli was able to...

Ron Hextall offers something of update on Malkin, Letang contract negotiations

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports A bit of news regarding contracts Unlike his predecessor, Ron Hextall doesn’t let a lot slip through to the media and fans about the inner workings and happenings of what he is considering doing. Following signing Jeff Carter to a two-year contract (which seems like an indicator on its own about keeping the band together), Hextall shared some thoughts about the other big negotiations he still has on his to-do list. Hextall: "Geno and Tanger have been here for I think 16 years. I know they've done a lot for the city, and the city...

Mike Sullivan opens up, talks about Sidney Crosby, Mario Lemieux’s legacies

Photo by Dave Sandford/NHLI via Crosby is nearing close to scoring his 500th career goal. There aren't many things left to be said about Sidney Crosby, but as the Penguins captain nears closer to scoring his 500th career goal, head coach Mike Sullivan found a way to elaborate on Crosby. Crosby, now three goals away from scoring his 500th goal, was called a ‘pioneer of the game’ on Wednesday by Sullivan, saying that each have that same status in their respective generations.

Photo by Justin Berl/Icon Sportswire via The Penguins extend veteran center for two more seasons The Penguins signed a big impending free agent, but it wasn’t Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang or Bryan Rust.

Brian Boyle has been a nice surprise

Brian Boyle has been a nice surprise

Photo by Justin K. Aller/NHLI via He does not play a major role, but he plays his role very well. My immediate reaction to the news that the Pittsburgh Penguins were inviting Brian Boyle to training camp was, admittedly, nothing more than an eye roll. It just seemed like a move to bring “size” and “toughness” for the sake of bringing size and toughness and that it would result in more of a role than was needed. There was also the question of what all Boyle had left in the tank as an NHL player. In hindsight, that was all pretty stupid. Not only is that not...

Sullivan has Penguins thriving, “hungry for more”

Photo by Emilee Chinn/ Winners of 17 out of the last 19, the Penguins are hitting on all cylinders After their 17th win in the last 19 games and emerging as one of the NHL’s very top teams since the start of December, the Pittsburgh Penguins have that magical feeling in the air. Coach Mike Sullivan was quick to credit his big three, and for good enough reason. Evgeni Malkin has returned from knee surgery to score nine points (3G+6A) in his first eight games. After a slow start, Sidney Crosby has 32 points (10G+22A) in his last 23 games. Kris Letang has 37 points...

Wasn’t easy and wasn’t always pretty, but the Pittsburgh Penguins battled back from three separate one-goal deficits to eventually pull away from the Arizona Coyotes in the third period for a 6-3 victory. Kris Letang scored twice while Sidney Crosby inched closer to career goal No. 500 with one of his own. This victory now gives the Penguins six wins in a row with a back-to-back set...
