Penguins knock off Jets
The Pittsburgh Penguins’ perfect march through March is turning into a flat-out sprint.
And the latest addition to their star-studded lineup isn’t even due in town until the weekend.
NHL Hockey: Pens top Flyers 2-1 in overtime
Hockey’s hottest team keeps finding ways to win. And even more help is on the way. Tyler Kennedy scored 2:33 into overtime and the Pittsburgh Penguins ran their winning streak to 12 games with a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers last night.
Malkin returns to fuel rally by Pens
The puck ended up on Evgeni Malkin’s stick, and Tampa Bay Lightning coach Guy Boucher could feel a sense of dread. It didn’t matter that the Pittsburgh Penguins center hadn’t played in more than a week due to a concussion. Give the reigning NHL MVP a sheet of open ice in a tight game and things typically aren’t going to end well.
NHL Hockey: Tlusty, Eric Staal lead Hurricanes past Pens
Eric Staal wasn’t going to let his little brother lose on this special night. The older Staal centered a line that produced three goals in the Carolina Hurricanes’ 4-1 victory over Pittsburgh last night in ex-Penguin Jordan Staal’s first game against his old teammates.
NHL Hockey: Panthers slip past Penguins
The Florida Panthers broke out of their power-play slump in a big way. Tomas Kopecky recorded his first career hat trick and Tomas Fleischmann had the go-ahead score for his 100th career goal, lifting the Panthers to a 6-4 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins last night.
Pens place Malkin on injured reserve
Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin has been placed on injured reserve with a concussion. The team announced the move yesterday, saying it was retroactive to Feb. 22.
NHL Hockey: Devils top Penguins 3-1 for 5th straight win
David Clarkson is well on his way to proving his 30-goal season last season for the New Jersey Devils was no fluke. Clarkson scored two goals to help the Devils beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 for the second time in as many days and extend their season-high winning streak to five games yesterday.
NHL Hockey: Penguins hold off Isles despite third-period rally
Sidney Crosby managed to smile despite a swollen nose that was still bleeding long after it was struck by a puck. The Penguins captain had reason to be happy. His nose wasn’t broken, and Pittsburgh held off the New York Islanders in a third period that turned more tense than expected.
NHL Hockey: Penguins’ Vokoun shuts out Rangers
Tomas Vokoun and the rest of the Penguins have Madison Square Garden figured out. Now they just have to find their comfort zone back home in Pittsburgh. Vokoun stopped 28 shots for his 49th NHL shutout, and the Penguins scored on the first shot of the first and third periods in a 3-0 victory over the New York Rangers last night.
NHL Hockey: Crosby, Malkin lead Pens to shootout win
The Penguins didn’t look like great — until Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin did their thing in the shootout. Crosby and Malkin made pretty moves to beat Craig Anderson in the shootout and give Pittsburgh a 2-1 victory against the Ottawa Senators yesterday.
