Video: Ovechkin Nut Taps Crosby

13624-autosave-v1 This is one of the cheapest plays in the NHL.   NBC showed a video montage of all the cheap shots the Capitals took on Crosby Wednesday night, this Ovechkin nut tap was not included.    Call him Crysby, a diver or whatever, if you get the chance watch the abuse Crosby takes in just a single game, every game.  Watch Ovechkin’s stick, the [...]

Penguins History: Bob Paradise

bob paradise It might come as a surprise for Penguins fans to learn that a Hall-of-Fame defenseman skated for the team in the mid-to-late 1970s. No, it wasn’t shot-blocker extraordinaire Dave Burrows or even Norris Trophy winner Randy Carlyle. His name was Bob Paradise, and he was inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame in 1989. (more… [...]

Can the Penguins Beat the Flyers?

00ppfront After watching Philadelphia cut through the black and gold like a knife going through a tub of warm butter in Games 1 and 2, the question on everyone’s mind is, “can the Penguins beat the Flyers?” The answer is yes. But first, a history lesson. Step into my time machine, if you will, and set the date for April 26, 1992. Fresh off a dismal 7-2 [...]

Winnipeg Loves Sid

Winnipeg Loves Sid This is just too great not to post.  From last night’s Winnipeg vs. Washington game…  

Penguins History: Robert Lang

Bob Lang As a member of the illustrious draft class of 1990 that included Penguins prodigy Jaromir Jagr, Robert Lang was projected to be a star. Indeed, the Teplice, Czechoslovakia native possessed all the tools. A smooth, powerful skater, the 6’3” 217-pounder had excellent vision and an exquisite touch, both for passing and shooting. While Lang event [...]

Penguins History: Jim Johnson

Jimmy Johnson It’s somehow fitting that former Penguins defenseman Jim Johnson played his college hockey for the University of Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs. Indeed, the undersized defenseman displayed bulldog tenacity while carving out a solid 13-year NHL career. Although he enjoyed an outstanding collegiate career, Johnson was bypassed in the Entry Draft. Fo [...]

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 [...]

Capitals Blank Penguins 1-0

00ppfront The weather in Pittsburgh has been unseasonably warm in the New Year, with temperatures hovering around 50 degrees. It’s a pity the same can’t be said for the local hockey team, which remains colder than an Arctic clipper howling across the frozen tundra. A night after absorbing perhaps their most humbling defeat of the season, the Peng [...]

Bombs Away: Caps Can’t Get Enough Of The Pens

00ppfront The Pens and Caps is more than a rivalry, it has become a story of unrequited love.  Or obsession.  If we have learned nothing else about the Caps this season, especially through the eyes of 24/7, it’s that they have this non-stop focus on the Pens. During the HBO series, we saw constant references by Caps’ coach Boudreau to the P [...]

Pens Fans: PLEASE Stop the “WOO”

WOO I have to get this out there before tonight’s home game… This could possibly be the most important post I make all season.  If you’ve been to a game since the second half of last season, you will probably understand why. The “WOO” has become the most annoying thing to overtake Pens games.  Even more annoying than the wave.  It sta [...]
