Just over two weeks ago, Mike Murphy handed down one of the biggest joke decisions in supplementary discipline when he decided that the Bruins’ Zdeno Chara should receive no fine or suspension for his hit the night before on the Canadiens’ Max Pacioretty. I bring this up again for several reasons.
First, the Habs and Bruins mee [...]
During the summer of 1977, popular enforcer Bob “Battleship” Kelly signed a free-agent deal with Chicago, leaving the Penguins without a protector. Although general manager Baz Bastien imported rugged players Colin Campbell, Bob Paradise, and Brian Spencer to help with the policing chores, the Pens quickly fell prey to imposing cl [...]
It wasn’t the prettiest of wins–certainly not one Dan Bylsma and the Penguins’ coaching staff will use for instructional video. However, given the fact that the Pens triumphed in the Motor City after blowing a 4-0 second-period lead, they’ll gladly take the two points.

The media can “spin” the problems of the NHL onto Mario Lemieux’s shoulders all they want, but when push comes to shove, the NHL will still be the one that needs to correct their problem, not Mario. Until the NHL fixes the problem of leaving players to “police themselves” the Pittsburgh Penguins need to employ th [...]
Taking full advantage of overlapping third-period penalties, the Rangers rode a pair of power-play goals to a 5-2 victory over the Penguins before a sellout matinee crowd at the CONSOL Energy Center.

The play of the Penguins over the next four games should give us a very good idea of how they might fare in the playoffs. Rangers and Devils at home, Red Wings and Flyers on the road. Three playoff-bound teams and maybe four as the Devils are the hottest team in the NHL. To date the Penguins have not played well against the upper echelon t [...]
Sidney Crosby skated for the 3rd time in four days and even though each time has only been 15 minutes, he has been symptom free. “ I know it’s going to take time. From the way I feel out there and not doing anything for two and a half months, you feel it. “, Crosby Said “It’s nice to get out there. I don’t really have a pla [...]
On Friday Bob McCown a radio guy up in Toronto said about Sidney Crosby: “Members of his family I’ve been told have suggested to Sid or maybe talking to Sid or trying to encourage Sid to consider retirement” he said that it was not Sid’s parents, and that it was just a member of his family. This was so carefully worde [...]
