Do the Blue Jackets Stand a Chance Against the Penguins?

In our look at the playoff series between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Columbus Blue Jackets, one detail emerged: experience was going to be a factor. Now that the Penguins are up two games to none on the Blue Jackets, that experience factor has been showing itself. Pittsburgh has outscored Columbus 7-2 so far across two […]

2017 Stanley Cup Playoff Preview: Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Columbus Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets had a terrific year, but they’ve drawn the assignment of facing the defending champs in the first round. That’s no easy feat, especially for a club that hasn’t seen post-season puck since 2014, but these Blue Jackets pulled off a 50-24-8 record in the regular season. The Pittsburgh Penguins finished three […]

Connor McDavid Wins Art Ross Trophy

Connor McDavid has secured the Art Ross Trophy as the NHL’s leading scorer, putting together a 100-point season in just his second season in the league. The 20-year-old had a pair of assists as his Edmonton Oilers took down the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday night. That put an end to his regulation season on a […]

Alex Ovechkin Strikes 1,000 Points

To the surprise of nobody, Alex Ovechkin once again entered the history books and recorded his 1,000th point on Wednesday night. Ovechkin achieved the marker against the Pittsburgh Penguins, scoring 35 seconds into the first period at the Verizon Center. The Russian forward not only became the first Washington Capital to carve out 1,000 points, […]

Making History: Alex Ovechkin Ties “Rocket” Richard

It goes without saying that Alex Ovechkin is a generational talent. He proved it again last night, scoring his 544th career goal and notching his 999th career point, thereby matching the goal-scoring total of Maurice “Rocket” Richard. The goal came in Montreal, which is perhaps fitting. Ovechkin’s Washington Capitals knocked off the Canadiens by a […]

Sidney Crosby Out with Concussion, No Timetable for Return

While many Canadians are celebrating Thanksgiving, the Pittsburgh Penguins are trying to find the silver lining in a bad but familiar situation. Sidney Crosby has a concussion. Again. Also, there is no timetable for his return. The Penguins announced that Crosby sustained the concussion during practice on Friday, his second practice with the team since […]

2016-2017 Season Preview: Pittsburgh Penguins

The Pittsburgh Penguins closed off the 2015-2016 by winning the Stanley Cup and they’re hoping for identical results in 2016-2017, albeit without the rather sloppy start. The Penguins didn’t look sharp in the first half of last season and finished with a 48-26-8 record that wasn’t indicative of their play when things got tough. Even […]

Sidney Crosby Wins Conn Smythe Trophy

To the surprise of few, Sidney Crosby has secured the Conn Smythe Trophy. The victory comes after winning the second Stanley Cup of his career, seven years to the day of his first win in 2009. Crosby is just the ninth player in NHL history to hold two Stanley Cups and two Olympic gold medals. Igor […]

Can the San Jose Sharks Actually Win?

The Pittsburgh Penguins took a series stranglehold on Monday night with a 3-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks. They’re one win away from securing the Stanley Cup and the time has come to seriously question the opposition. While yours truly asked a lot of questions yesterday, the Penguins seemed to have all the answers […]

Playing the Game: Crosby Accused of “Cheating” in Faceoffs

The San Jose Sharks are down two games to none in the Stanley Cup Final, so it stands to reason that the game is afoot. Sharks forward Logan Couture laid it all out on the line when asked why Pittsburgh Penguins centre Sidney Crosby was so dominant in the faceoff circle. “He cheats,” said the […]
