Hitting Their Stride by @BrianK_PI




It's been an up and down season so far for the Pittsburgh Penguins. At times they look like they could play with, and beat, any team that comes their way. Other times they look dispassionate, disinterested, and like a team that if they managed to squeak into the playoffs, they wouldn't go very far. On several occasions the team has played to both extremes in the same game, seemingly changing during the intermissions. Far too often the latter team has shown up and looked outmatched against the top teams in the division.


Consistency has been a major issue for these Penguins, though with all they've been through since being eliminated in the conference semifinals last year that's hardly a surprise. The current roster has ten players who weren't in Pittsburgh last season, and Mike Bales remains the only holdover from last year's coaching staff. 10 players on the current roster weren't in Pittsburgh last season, and the multitude of injuries has led to new players constantly in and out of the lineup. It's been difficult for this team to gel, both to each other and to a new system, but finally the team is getting healthy and capable of playing up to their full potential.

Le Trial and Tribulations of @Kris58Letang: Me for Chuck Norris?


Allo my friends, it is your pal writing to all of you on the internets! I hope your day has been really nice! My day has been pretty good. Started out with some work outs, played some video games and watched some pretty funny videos on the YouTube! After that though, I got a little bit confused so I figured I would write to you, my readers with hopes you can clear a few things up for me.

I got on the Pens Initiative Facebook page where I saw a post about your old buddy Letang and saying Letang For Norris with a number sign before it. It looked like this #LETANGforNORRIS. At first this confuses me because I thought Penguins fans liked me again? Why would they want to trades me? So I figured this Norris guy must be pretty good! So i went back to the internets to look!

That's Tom "Randy Marsh" Wilson on the right
The Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals met for the fourth time this season as part of NBCSports' "Rivalry Night."

Washington had won the three previous games in convincing fashion, with Braden Holtby recording two shutouts.

Fare thee well, Possession Black Hole Zach Sill (image by the incomparable Ryan Noble)
Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins will take Alexander Ovechkin's Washington Capitals for the fourth and final time this regular season in just about 30 minutes.

While Crosby has amassed more personal hardware and team accolades compared to his Russian adversary, "the Great 8" has spearheaded a Capitals attack that has outscored the Penguins 10-1 en route to a 3-0 record against Pittsburgh (including two Braden Holtby shutouts).

Sidney Crosby and GoPro Return for More Eye Candy

Remember a few months ago when Sid and a few other NHLers got together and had some GoPro fun?  You don't?  Click here and come back to us.  Pretty cool, right?

Sid is done sharing the spotlight in his newest GoPro video.
