Lucky Evgeni Malkin, lucky Pittsburgh Penguins

00ppfront Can he get any better? Traditionally Evgeni Malkin is at his best when his parents arrive and he has Mama Malkin’s borscht. Rumor has it they are planning on coming soon – so fair warning to the rest of the NHL. As of Sunday’s afternoon game, Malkin is the point leader with 58 points despite missing seven games. He has 8 game winning goals on [...]

Penguins Malkin-ize Capitals in OT

00ppfront Ever since they were drafted No. 1 and No. 2 overall in 2004, Alex Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin have provided an intriguing contrast in styles—both on and off the ice. While the brash and colorful Ovechkin has grabbed the headlines and endorsement deals, Malkin has quietly gone about his business with a determined excellence. On Sunday afternoo [...]

Alexander Ovechkin Stole James Neal’s All-Star Spot

Ovechkin Funny Hat The number one goal scoring left winger in the NHL, James Neal  is currently without a spot on the NHL All-Star Game roster and barring injury to a player currently on the roster he’ll be sitting at home watching the game on TV.

Jeffrey and Malkin Shine: Penguins Beat Habs in a Thriller

00ppfront In the midst of a roller-coaster season filled with desperate lows and equally dizzying heights, one thing about the Pittsburgh Penguins is certain. Win, lose or draw, the boys from the ‘Burgh give the fans their money’s worth. Take Friday night’s contest with the Montreal Canadiens for example. After spotting the visitors a 4-2 lead through [...]

Penguins Topple Mighty Rangers 4-1

00ppfront It’s hard to believe that scarcely seven days ago observers (like me) were ready to shovel dirt on the Penguins following their sixth-straight loss. What a difference a week makes. In arguably their finest effort of the season, the piping-hot Pens rode the stellar goaltending of Marc-Andre Fleury and another big-time performance by Evgeni Mal [...]

Penguins Edge ‘Canes 2-1 in Shootout

00ppfront The Penguins continued to distance themselves from an ugly six-game slide with a crisp 2-1 shootout win over Carolina at CONSOL Energy Center on Tuesday night. The victory—the club’s third in a row—vaulted the black and gold past idle Florida and into sixth place in the Eastern Conference standings. Although the Hurricanes entered the contest [...]

Penguins History: Keith McCreary

Keith Mccreary One of the earliest Penguins heroes, Vernon “Keith” McCreary typified the teams of the late 1960s and early 70s. While hardly a star, he was a diligent two-way player who always gave his best effort. As a youngster growing up on the shores of Lake Bernard in central Ontario, McCreary dreamed of one day playing in the NHL like his older brothe [...]

Video: Vincent Lecavalier Embarrasses Self Sucker Punches Malkin

Video: Vincent Lecavalier Embarrasses Self Sucker Punches Malkin Vincent Lecavalier did the most unmanly thing that I’ve seen on ice since Ned Braden did the striptease at center ice.  Lecavalier sucker punches Malkin not once but twice.   

Malkin, Penguins Short Circuit Lightning 6-3

00ppfront The Tampa Bay Lightning entered Sunday afternoon’s contest with Pittsburgh lugging an unsightly six-game losing streak. If Guy Boucher’s crew was expecting any sympathy from the Penguins—who only recently snapped a six-game slide of their own—they were sadly mistaken. Paced by Evgeni Malkin’s natural hat trick and a pair of power-play tallies [...]
