Apr 24, 2011, 9:00 AM EST
The Penguins might be leading their series with Tampa Bay, but they’ve got a reason or two to be nervous. Also, Washington’s toughness, the joy of a rivalry, Jon Quick’s bounce-back game, and Flyers goalie roulette.

Mar 19, 2011, 8:44 PM EST
While his team finds a way to grind out wins and points without Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang is on a considerable scoring slump. Should the Penguins be worried about their 23-year-old offensive defenseman?

If the playoffs started tonight, the Penguins would host the Capitals in a first round series. Here is a detailed discussion of such a tantalizing scenario.
Feb 5, 2011, 8:00 PM EST
The Caps and Penguins are both bubbling over with success of late and considering how both teams were filled with superstars, injuries aren’t slowing the Pens down while the Caps stars are finally showing up.
Feb 5, 2011, 5:05 PM EST
Wondering how long exactly Evgeni Malkin will be out of action? Some reports are saying it’ll be at least six months.
Feb 5, 2011, 1:22 PM EST

Brent Johnson drops Rick DiPietro with one punch in only goalie fight of season (Oh yeah, and Pens beat Isles 3-0)
Feb 2, 2011, 10:07 PM EST
The “real” story might be that the Penguins managed another win without Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby, but the biggest moment came when Brent Johnson landed a one-punch knockout on Rick DiPietro in this season’s first goalie fight.
