Things got off to a really bad start. But it was only up from there.
Down 3-1 in the second period, the Penguins used their ridicious powerplay to climb back in the game,and the Devils were left stunned.

Those of you who followed us last year might remember our "FAMOUS MOVIE MONSTERS STARRING THE PENS!" post. If not, take a look here. This year, we decided not to limit our ideas to classic "creature features" and explore some horror movies that were filmed since color has been added to "picture boxes".Take a Halloween stroll with us as we re-imagine...
A somewhat scary situation for Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta came to light on Monday as it was announced that the 20-year-old defenseman will undergo surgery next week to remove a tumor from his neck. Doctors said there is an 85-percent chance that the tumor could be a form of “low-grade thyroid cancer.” The tumor was discovered during preseason physicals and the...

All players were present at the team’s practice this morning except for Beau Bennett who skated earlier and Jim Rutherford and associate general manager Jason Boteril were keeping a watchful eye...
Everybody loves a scapegoat. This season, the early favorite to play that role is one Craig Adams. And why not?Craig Adams will not score 10 goals. He's only done that once in his career, in the 2005-06 season which he spent in Carolina. Nor will he put up 25 points. He's never done that.But this is Pittsburgh. And putting up points is the only way fans measure the worth...
Coming off two tough losses, the effort put in by the Pens Saturday night in Nashville was exactly what you would want to see. They controlled the first two periods off the game, outshooting the Preds 22-12. In the third period they were able to put the game out of reach early with two power play goals. It wasn’t perfect, but it was as close to that as we’ve seen. Once...
The Pittsburgh Penguins dropped their second game in a row, this time by allowing 3 goals in a stretch of 6:55 against the Detroit Red Wings. Yes, it is an ugly way to lose a game. Yes, it is the second time in the three games the team has lost that they were burned by […]

The Pittsburgh Penguins decided to add “O Canada” before their game against the Philadelphia Flyers following the horrible tragedy on Parliament Hill. While that gesture would have been nice enough, the Penguins took things a step further and transformed their arena into one giant “We Love Canada” display. Great move by the Penguins organization.
A little over a month ago, Marc-Andre Fleury was asked about his future plans and responded by stating that he would prefer to end his career in Pittsburgh. A free agent at season’s end, Fleury reiterated his love for the city, fans, team, and coaching staff. Marc-Andre Fleury said all the things you’d expect Marc-Andre Fleury to say.
Today, GM Jim Rutherford was...
Sidney Crosby, arguably the best hockey player in the world, plays for the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins and their fans don’t like the Philadelphia Flyers, and the feeling is quite mutual. Flyers fans have a particularly strong hatred for Crosby. With that in mind, do you think Sid the Kid dressing as Rocky Balboa for...Read More

Halloween is always a good time to catch your favorite athletes dressed as semi-boring costumes, unless they drift into the racist end of the pool (looking at you, Raffi Torres). Or if you’re Sidney Crosby, you use your costume to possibly troll your arch enemy. Check out the picture below, from the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Halloween party this weekend:
