Pittsburgh Penguins


Penguins’ Marc-Andre Fleury Meant To Do That


The best sprawling, desperation, no-look goalie save you will see this week. Or possibly until you die.


Brooks Orpik Probably Concussed, Keeps Playing Anyway Because Hockey

With the Penguins trailing 2-0 in the conference finals series to the Bruins, Wednesday night’s game was a must-win. Midway through the second overtime period in what was as good of a playoff hockey game as you’re going to get, Pens defenseman Brooks Orpik went to control a puck behind the net when Bruins winger Milan Lucic launched him into the boards from behind. Here’s a look at the hit and the implications it has on the concussion debate in the NHL.


On A Scale Of One To Terrifying: How Terrifying Is This ‘Let’s Go Pens’ Chest Hair?

Let’s not go Pens. Let’s go stab our eyes out with pens. Let’s go home and shave our chest hair and dispose of all the crystal meth that put our minds in such a dark place. Or, just add an “i” after the “n,” because we are three years old.


Somehow, The Flyers Scored Through This Lengthy Goalmouth Scrum Where Virtually Everyone Was In The Crease

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers aren’t normal hockey teams — they combined for 56 goals in their six-game playoff series last year. That held last night, when the Flyers eked out a 6-5 win. But one of the 11 goals was amongst the strangest we’ve ever seen, with virtually everyone on the ice scrambling during a looooooong goalmouth scrum, with no whistles blown, and netminder Tomas Vokoun being one of the few people not in the play, as he was left completely disillusioned. There clearly should have been a penalty on Kris Letang for trying to throw the puck out of the crease, but that would’ve negated this highlight. So we thank you, confused refs.

If you don’t like hockey, just watch a Flyers-Penguins game, and you will become a fan.

The NHL Lockout Was Really Tough On Sidney Crosby’s Physique

Sometimes it’s hard to stay in shape during the lockout, months of inactivity shriveling a pristine athletic body into that of an old lady. Amirite, Sidney Crosby?


Long-Term NHL Contracts Make Zero Sense

While yesterday’s sports headlines were dominated by Euro 2012, Wimbledon, and the NBA Draft, there was some big hockey news that might have slipped by the wayside. Two blockbuster contracts were handed out, with Pittsburgh signing Sidney Crosby to a 12-year/$104 million contract, and the Los Angeles Kings handing Jonathan Quick a 10-year deal worth $58 million. Here’s why those contracts — and other NHL deals like them — boggle our minds.


Watch Marc-Andre Fleury And The Penguins Save Their Season With This Crazy Penalty Kill

Philadelphia Continues Psychological Torture Campaign Against Sidney Crosby With This Newspaper Photo

The Flyers/Penguins series has been brutal and one-sided, and tonight, Philly can close out the series with a 4-0 sweep. The Philadelphia Daily News is aware of this, and is doing its part by taunting Pittsburgh’s biggest star, Sidney Crosby, by running this photo of Crosby as the Cowardly Lion.


Even The Announcers Wanted To Punch People During Game 3 Of The Penguins-Flyers Series

Or, “Has the fighting culture in hockey reached a breaking point when color commentators want to ‘drop a bomb’ on Sidney Crosby?” Some brutal audio, after the jump.
